No Manual Transmission for Corvette?

...well Car and Driver's Don Sherman sure thinks so in his new writings this week. His theory is based on the fact that Hoerbiger Drivetrain Mechatronics was bought up by Tremec, who already supplies the means to transfer all that power to GM. Who is Hoerbiger Drivetrain Mechatronics you say? They are a Belgian Firm that has relationships with Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and McLaren just to name a few. Now we got you attention, because if you read between the lines, that could very well mean the twin-disk-clutch that we all dream about and it will be a huge leap forward in Corvette Performance both on the Street and on the Track. 

But will it come with a cost? What if its the Only Option...

Over Coffee this morning my partner was going bonkers - "that is the stupidest thing I ever heard" "What am I suppose to do - I don't know how to drive an Automatic" "What about being one-with-the-car"  ...and then a complete melt down that I can't really go into here.

But it does beg the question, What if Don Sherman is correct and there is no Manual Option?

--- I don't know how to drive an Automatic either...
