7-Speed Manual for 2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette

There is a unconfirmed news by Chevrolet that the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette will be available with seven-speed manual transmission. Seems like GM
would like to jump into the bandwagon of seven-speed transmission. Only recently Porsche announced that the 2012 Porsche 911 will be offered with a seven-speed manual option (the picture above is from Porsche).

It is interesting move for both these manufacturersas I believe manufacturers would move towards Automatic transmission, Continously Variable Transmission (CVT) or Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) for sportier cars. This niche market will eventually be much more niche. Not sure if Chevrolet will plan to utilize its 7 gears for speed and also fuel consumption.
