I highly doubt it. The transmission in this vehicle is one of the most technologically advanced systems in the world. On top of that, what can you do with a manual that this transmission can't do? I highly doubt there is anyone out there that can shift a manual faster than this car will shift and the only thing the electronics prohibit are actions that will over-rev the motor. There is no need to heel toe shift because of the throttle blip and you never miss a gear. Not to mention the fact that your hands are free to steer. I own one and I am very happy. Just my 2 cents
Right on!!! There probably isn't one in 5000 owners who drive sports cars with a manual that could shift like the pros with heel and toe to maintain revs. If you miss a shift slightly and not have the proper rpms each and every shift with perfection, you will loose to the Lexus direct hook up manual sport shift without a doubt. I would venture to say that most every dude that scans this web site thinking that the stats make their car superior to the ISF, ie. 0-60 times 1/4 mile times etc. couldn't even come close to these statistics compiled by pro drivers. Head to head competiton with manual vs. 8 Speed auto with average type drivers would give the advantage to the ISF driver.
