6. Porsche Panamera
Porsche’s already disappointed us with its automatic-only 911 GT3 but they figured we needed another serving of sadness. Like its razor sharp little sibling the Panamera sedan is only offered with a self-shifting gearbox.
Whether the car is powered by a diesel, a hybrid drivetrain, a twin-turbo V8 or something else entirely they’re all paired with automatic transmissions – yes, even the awesome GTS model. The bulk of the Panamera lineup comes with a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch unit, though an eight-speed Tiptronic is offered on the hybrid version of the car.
With the current generation 911, Porsche has introduced a trick new 7-speed manual. Wouldn’t that be nice?
