As far as I am concerned, a paddle shift = Automatic Trans.
I feel the auto trans is a good thing for the 4 door, however, a real sports car should have 3 pedals on the floor.

I fear the day I wil have to buy a Porsche, just because they are the only manufacturer that still lets the driver shift for themselfe.

This comment ony holds true if one limits the definition of REAL race cars. It one looks at the total # of cars on race tracks, (not just F1) there are plenty of 3 pedal race cars.

Loooking at Sprts Cars
In the Porsche world, 3 pedal cars are the norm, and the cars with tiptronic are slow movers in the second hand market.
In talks with Maserati dealers, used coupes with the 6MT sell MUCH faster than the CC.
In looked at used Ferrari 355s, there seems to be a preference to the 6MT cars.

If Maserati wants to compete with Porsche in the sports car market, it should pay attention to what the customer wants.
