Some people like being in control –especially where driving is concerned and that’s why they insist on a manual transmission in their vehicles, especially those who drive sporty cars and vintage vehicles. But while it used to be known as the standard transmission, the manual or stick shift is fast becoming endangered. Future electric cars won’t have them and most drivers now prefer an automatic transmission. But manufacturers still cater to those die-hard fans, who like to enjoy the ‘real’ experience of driving, pedals and all!
In a world where every car has a new class and it feels manufacturers are trying hard to have vehicles that can easily fit into a variety of categories I’m not sure what a normal car is anymore. If we define a normal car as one that looks like it should be made for driving on the commute to and from work then we still have a large variety, but for the most part we all know what a normal car is. What we don’t know is that some of these cars are made to be exciting to drive and are capable of turning even the stodgiest of us into an enthusiast with a huge smile on our faces.
