Currently, Nissan is in the final preparation stage before the release of a new Sentra model. In August, the images of the Sentra test mule (including the interior image, which confirmed the presence of a 6-speed manual gearbox) leaked out on the internet. But, a recent report from Cars Direct, which has recently gained access to some official data (order guide) on the upcoming Sentra, implies that the new car intended for the US market won’t have a manual option.

The new Porsche 911 of the 992 Series initially debuted with the 8-speed PDK transmission, but the carmaker recently added a manual option for admirers of classic sports cars. It is said that the 7-speed gear stick will be available on the 2020 Carrera S and Carrera 4S models. Porsche plans that the 1-st 2020 manual Porsche will reach the US customers next spring.
