2016 Porsche 911
Seven forward gears, no waiting. Do the Porsche 911 ($90,450) a favor and order it with a manual transmission, for the sake of its future collectibility. In addition, the upcoming 911 R will offer a six-speed manual as its only transmission.
Also consider: The Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT ($99,900) provides a different, but no less special type of thrill. Its 430-hp and six-speed manual offer a distinctively analog experience, within a field of higher-tech sports cars.
