  • Porsche - just about all.
  • any car can be either manual or auto it's a personal choice
  • Corvette
  • Subaru makes automatics, but damn...if you buy an automatic Subaru with an H4 engine it is going to be sluggish as hell... I speak from experience...
  • Any New car I am going to buy.
  • All cars should be manual! OK personal grumble I hate automatics. I don't feel in control... And to be fair you get much better performance from a manual gearbox. Better acceleration etc and obviously better response to individual situations.
  • Any roadster must be a manual transmission, rear wheel drive, 2 seater, and convertible.
  • Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, any 'sports' car - otherwise, what's the point? Vrrrrooom. :-)
  • I would say, from personal experience, any gutless wonder like my Kia! Amazing the difference when you have even a little more control with a manual.
  • i tell you what i was not thinking at all, KIA. But anyway when you think manual shift you definatley think sports cars like your corvette's, porsche, mustang, camaro and most importantly higher end cars like lamborghini, and your more expensive luxury cars made by either mercedes or BMW.
  • A Lamborghini....
  • At the moment, the cars for the "normal" driving tests must absolutely be a manual shift, I think. But it could change: Look at this forum: "Automatic cars may soon be allowed for driving tests" http://forum.carma.com.sg/archive/index.php/t-568933.html The idea is that as manual shift driving requires supplemental learning an abilities, people with disabilities or not wishing to learn this were allowed to take an "automatic-only" special driving test. But as automatic cars are becoming more common, the authorities don't want to bother anymore with checking if you can use a manual shift by the driving test.
  • I can't drive a stick... -_-
  • Porsche
  • Mustang GT's, Camero's or Transam's. They sound to good when its a stick & oh the power they have at your control with a manual. Nothing like speed shifting, can't do that with a sissy stick.
  • one of the few that would have to me a 'must' for me would be carroll shelby's personal dual turbo 427 cobra....
  • ALL of them except for station-wagons and mini-vans !
  • pagani zonda!
  • GTO,Charger,Hemi cuda
  • 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Turbo Diesel
  • any sports.(period)
  • Sports cars. I don't like seeing that they're made with an automatic transmission. It bugs me.
  • I disagree. Not all vehicles should be equipped with a manual transmission. For starters, automatics are generally stronger and much more forgiving than a manual trans; meaning, they don't break as easily as the standard shift gearbox. The reason for the automatics inherent design strengths are due to two factors. One, There is no repeated shocking of the driveline. Once the vehicles is under way the initial torque load is sustained and gradually distributed throughout the chassis. Two, as rotary power is converted to linear power, transferring power through the transmission to the rear to the vehicle (as in rear drive cars), power that is found to be more positive in a mechanical gearbox is somewhat diminished through the hydraulics of the automatic gearbox. Anybody who has driven a V8 powered vehicle with an automatic trans, and then driven the exact same vehicle with a standard shift arrangement can attest to this. Anyone ever been stuck behind a Chevy Chevette with a four cylinder diesel and a two speed automatic? In drag racing, the automatic is almost always more consistent and generally less expensive to operate than their manual shift counterparts. In road racing, I believe that the manual shift vehicle provides for more control and, ultimately, a better driver, overall. KIn short, an automatic for my Cadillac and a standard for my Ferrari.
  • Porsche, Lambo, Ferrari, ford gt, corvette ZO6, and the dodge viper.
  • Stock cars used for racing.
  • mustang
  • any dodge charger
  • Every Sports car
  • A 4-wheeler, a semi, a racer.

  • to answer your question , its a nissan patrol that always should be manual since the AMT isnt that great with all the delay in shifting and losing torque in between. BUT.. i think now its time to change, DCT or Dual Clutch Transmissions are going to take over the manual section because of better acceleration, better torque conversion and better fuel effeciency, in manuals you always lose torque due to shifting and stopping the torque from going to the gear to be able to change the gear but in DCT it acts like two gears in one where one gear gets ready the next shift and the first one changes. so.. i think DCT will rule soon enough, you can see how the Nissan GTR 2009 has made a fuss worldwide thanks to its engine and drive train plus the Dual Clutch Transmission
  • All sports cars, such as Corvettes, Porsches, 350Zs, and the like. All exotics, such as Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and the like. I'm torn on GT cars, such as the Maserati GT or the Bentley Continental GT, but I'm inclined to say yes for those as well. Without question, all economy cars (or any car under 150 hp, really).
  • When the car can run a 1/4 mile in 13 seconds or less. An automatic (save for the Maybach) on a 13 second or less car is like going to the Louvre and spitting upon the Mona Lisa. A crime to humanity. This car right here, has the god-given right to be an automatic and is probably the only exception to the rule. http://www.caranddriver.com/news/auto_shows/2008_detroit_naias_auto_show_auto_shows/concept_debuts/maybach_landaulet_concept_auto_shows
  • (i just tried posting an answer, not sure if it went through, so if this is a duplicate, i apologize). In short: Any car that can run the 1/4 mile in under 13 seconds should be a manual transmission. Anything other than that is a crime to humanity. http://www.caranddriver.com/news/auto_shows/2008_detroit_naias_auto_show_auto_shows/concept_debuts/maybach_landaulet_concept_auto_shows that car right there is the ONLY exception to the rule.
  • All of 'em, with the exception of work vehicles (depending on the preference of the driver.)
  • The next car that I buy must be a manual. I just got an automatic because it was a really good price and it's only the third automatic that I've owned out of 8 cars and I don't like the auto.
  • ALL THE ONES WITH A LOT OF HORSES UNDER THE HOOD =) ALSO PICK UP's SHOULD BE MANUALS TOO
  • a 69 charger without the crappy nose cone on the daytona superbee... i love the chargers... unfortunately i'm in Australia..... :(
  • My 300kw 1957 Corvette stingray. (hybrid) Now why would any1 want an auto on one of those babys?
  • All of them.
  • acura integra type r always has manual transmission. i think preformance cars should always be manual. are we so lazy or simply occupied doing other things while we drive. Personally, i can shift gears, talk on the phone and smoke a cigarette. The last two things are bad!!! LOL
  • olds cutlass.regal gran prix
  • When BMW M3 came autotragic. I died a little inside.
  • none that i can think of. I haven't seen a production car that made too much power for an automatic. In the US diesel trucks make up to 400hp and 750 ftlbs of torque and have automatics without problems
  • 1948 ford f 150
  • 69 road runner 63 cev impala 66 chev II 65 chvelle 280zx 2002 camero basicly any typ of car if you know how to drive them
  • Porsche. I have a 92 C2 that is the closest thing to primitve sports car that I want to drive. It would be heresy to buy the automatic, although Porsche makes them and the new ones are faster than the stick shift.
  • Any muscle car.
  • There is only 1 (one) true muscle car, the fastest of them all The Mclearen F-1, expect no substitutes.
  • autos are for fat lazy Americans
