It’s design might be anything but groundbreaking, but don’t ever say the Porsche 911 isn’t a trend setter. Offering the first 7-speed manual transmission in a production car, the new 911 won’t be the only high performance model to get such a multi-geared stick shift with Chevrolet set to hop on the bandwagon.

Arriving some time in 2013 as a 2014 model year car,the C7 Corvette will be offered with a standard 7-speed manual. As for the car’s engine, don’t look for any major changes when it comes to the type of engine, with a pushrod V8 expected under the hood. That small block will, however, get direct-injection and variable lift, enabling more power with considerably improved fuel economy.
