Just an opinion.

You have to attract to the masses when the price starts going up. Most people who can afford one will be upper in age. And since the tap-shift is very refined Im willing to bet most will opt for it. Especially those who are going to make this their daily driver. I prefer a 6 speed but I think I am the minority in this situation I believe.

I have been in the performance racing industry for most of my life and raced many different classes. Drag and Circle Track. Cars and Bikes.

I prefer a stick over an automatic when I want to hot rod around but since this is going to be my daily driver I have considered an automatic. The tap shift steering controls, I feel are a really cool option.

I will likely get a stick but I would not judge a person poorly if they got an automatic.

I would not be surprised if they sold more automatics than sticks.

While I agree about the Manuals I agree offering automatics was still relevant. As a person here at my work stated: "I've been driving a manual for years and I'm now old enough that I no longer wish to drive a manual." and he wouldn't even consider one now. Some people just get tired of it lol.

Oh no...not the manual vs automatic debate

I've always driven manual transmission cars since I was 16 and I traded in my C6 vette for a lexus is350 with paddles. It was definitely a nice break especially in commute traffic from LA to OC. The ZL1 will mark my return to a manual tranny. I no longer have to commute so far so I think I'll be OK

If your really interested in the ZL1 the last thing you are going to be concerned with or about is the price. You never know what gas is gonna cost, but you buy it anyway. Don't you??

Yeah. I'm thinkin low 50's as well. 55 at the most. I'd buy it regardless as well but like you said, I'd regret it later.
