Illustration for article titled What Car Desperately Needs A Manual Transmission?

There are a number of cars out there these days that are offered with the latest in super fast automatic transmission tech. A lot of them are technically amazing, but we can't help but think that some would be better with a manual. Which need a row-your-own option?


I'm not going to say 911 GT3, because that's cliche. I'm going to go with the Ferrari 458 (or 488 GTB, whichever). This is a car that could have a gated transmission and be just as fun and involving as the 458 with the brilliant dual clutch trans.

Sure, it'd be slower, but who really cares? It would still be faster than most everything else on the road.
