Oh well, at least at the end of the day you'll be able to put take that phone call while putting on your makeup and eating breakfast on your morning commute.
If Google has anything to do with it, absolutely.
When it comes down to it, how you
feel about driving is ultimately irrelevant, as 80-95% of the drivers out there drive to get from A to B or to lug their kids hockey equipment around or whatever. In other words, for utility, not for fun. Car manufacturers will cater to that market while complying with regulations. Providing fuel efficient manual transmissions for the few enthusiasts out there who drive for enjoyment rather than utility simply doesn't make financial sense.
In other words, to say it again, you don't matter. That's just the cold hard truth.
