t’s worth noting that some cars with dual-clutch automatics offer a manual shifting mode, usually via steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, but the experience is not the same. Some performance enthusiasts may bemoan the loss of the ”row-it-yourself” experience, since manually shifting is an enjoyable skill to practice and perfect, but if speed is the ultimate goal, it’s hard to argue with the results of an automated manual transmission.
Engine stop-start technology has proliferated in automatic-transmission cars as automakers try to squeeze additional efficiency from internal combustion engines, but they’ve figured out how to bring the fuel-saving feature to stick-shift cars, too. In the Porsche 718 Cayman, for instance, the engine can shut off to save fuel when the car is stopped, the gear selector is in Neutral and the clutch pedal is released. Depress the clutch to get into gear and the engine restarts.
The brake and accelerator pedals are pretty simple – press the brake to slow down (the firmer you press it, the quicker you’ll lose speed), while using the accelerator increases the engine’s revs and causes you to speed up (the firmer you press it, the quicker you will speed up).
