I think the new Vette is automatic only because they dumped so much money into the DCT. It’s looks are growing on me and I expect the Z06 and other models will be quite a performance bargain. If the Z06 gets the rumored flat-plane crank motor then it’ll sound amazing.
No stick was developed for the car because they thought there wouldn’t be enough demand.Vette always had great bang for the buck, and the entire line is going DCT only right?
But the way they designed the chassis, a manual transmission is also impossible. The transmission tunnel is now foundational to the structure. Evidently, putting a shift linkage through it would severely impair structural integrity.
