So according to that article the CR-Z prototype has a dual clutch 7 speed. /puke
"The prototype version is said to feature a direct-injected and turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with the current CR-Z’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid system. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is also said to have replaced both the CVT and manual options of the current CR-Z. Peak output of this prototype is said to be around 221 horsepower, a significant leap over the current car’s paltry 130-horsepower rating. "
I sure hope they have the option for us to buy a true manual with the 2nd gen finally does come out, otherwise the 2nd gen Cr-Z will be dead to me. I don't care how good the dual clutch trannys are. I've driven one before and hate them. Nothing will replace three pedals.
