2011 has officially come and gone and with it there has been some depressing news. Ranking pretty high on the list of unapologetically stupid actions by carmakers is canceling all production of manual transmissions. The primary culprits of this heinous crime are no other than Ferrari and Lamborghini for not only murdering their manual transmissions but, in the process, committing manslaughter against their beautiful gated shifters. Instead of mourning the passing of the gated shifter, we've decided to celebrate its life. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
