How long until Porsche does the same with the 911? I think those manual sales are dwindling, too.

The funny thing is that as auto trannies in high end sport sedans and sports cars have increased, I think they are the rational option for most drivers. Honestly, I prefer to have most people who drive around in 500+ hp cars to keep both hands on the wheel. If I bought a third car for fun, I think a 911S with a manual is just about all you need for rowing and driving pleasure, or an M3. Beyond that, probably two hands on the wheel is best.
