2014 Corvette Stingray: Great Car, Wimp Shifting

The 2014 Corvette Stingray had the chance to come out of the box with a car that could be a game changer but for that that wimp shifting gearbox. It is, however, still a great car. Why wouldn't they introduce the vehicle with a dual clutch system or a straight manual? Because Porsche and Nissan did. Porsche has made no excuses for phasing out the manual gearbox, but Ferrari did it in a rapid move as opposed to other manufacturers. One can only hope that the higher performance versions of this car will come with a Getrag or ZF dual clutch system and just kill the manual.
