Does anyone know this stat?

I feel like it will give us a good idea if the new Z will get a stick-shift.

Manual take rate for the Nissan 370Z in 2019 was 46 percent, according to Automobile Magazine.
Really? That seems really high... but a good sign that they might keep a stick shift in the new model!

Numbers aside, my last Nissan manual was the late gen G35S. I hated the high clutch take-up, tough to modulate esp. 1st gear take offs. I even adjusted the pedal. I don’t know how the 370Z is, but sure hope this is rectified on the new Z.

I'm a fan of the current Z. Never thought I'd like the rev-match feature but I love it.

This article was done back in April. In the SU one in 8 new vehicles now offer a manual transmission.

According to data obtained by CNBC and Edmunds, only 41 of the 327 new car models available to buy in the United States today are offered with a manual transmission—that's just 12.5 percent. Perhaps even more startling is just how quickly this ratio has dropped off. In 2011, 37 percent of all new vehicle models were offered with a manual transmission option.
