All I've heard is that the RC is coming with an automatic transmission. Haven't heard anything otherwise. I think a lot of automakers are trying to steer away from manual transmissions now.

With the way the industry is going with a lot of manuals hitting the chopping block it seems the RC won't have it, maybe the new Supra will.

That is true, plus Lexus might reinforce the idea of being able to get more out of the RC-F with an automatic. It would definitely help them to get better lap times than the competition since every split second matters.

If that is the case yes paddle flipping would be good for that. Personally, I would miss the third pedal and have to shift the gear my self. It takes the fun out of driving if you as me.

Yup.

How they see it is they can say they are better than the rest of other cars on paper, but it's not like most consumers will push the cars like that/
