Next-generation Chevrolet Corvette C7 to get 7-speed manual transmission

It is rumored that the 2014 C7 Chevy Corvette will be released with a seven-speed manaul transmission.

Additionally, the engine remains a pushrod, but a technologically advanced direct-injection V8 with variable lift.

There is still some debate over whether the 7-speed manual will use a 7 gear and tighten the ratios of the inital 6, or add an overdrive gear.

General Motors has invested $131 million in its Bowling Green Assembly plant to support production of the next generation Chevrolet Corvette, which will come out in 2013.

How about giving us some dual-clutch love like the Porsche PDK?
