Four-speed manual transmissions are largely outdated, with five- and six-speed transmissions taking their place as the more common options. Some performance cars may offer even more gears. However, they all work more or less the same, regardless of the number of gears.
The art of heel-and-toe shifting was once a prerequisite to get the most performance from manual transmission, but downshift rev-matching technology now makes anyone look like a pro. Found primarily on performance cars like the Nissan 370Z and Honda Civic Type R, this feature automatically adjusts engine speed to the gear you’ve selected for smooth, seamless downshifts. It’s particularly helpful during demanding racetrack driving, but it can make your favorite winding road even more enjoyable, too.
The Corvette, redesigned in 2014, underwent its most dramatic redesign in decades. But as radical as the new look was compared to previous Vettes, they made sure to keep essentials unchanged—a powerful V-8 and a manual. The new seven-speed manual transmission (an eight-speed automatic is optional) is one of the best hooked to any V8. And that’s true even for the top Z06 model.
