When we put up this post on Pontiac's unveiling of its new G6 GXP concept car, many of you pointed out that the six-speed manual transmission apparently came without a clutch... or at least a clutch pedal.

Oops.

GM quietly issued this updated interior shot today, with - count 'em - three pedals!

      I agree with #7, if you can't drive a stick without the clutch, then you need to go to school and learn.

      And yes, they need a better Photoshop artist next time...that shifter on the console looks way too fake.

      Easy, just get a 1957 Saab with the Saxomat clutch option, manual transmission, but no clutch pedal;-)

      It's the blessing and the curse of blog reporting. Blessing more for the consumer. Curse more for the manufacturer. It's visual proof that the media as we know it is changing.

      If you can't drive a stick without a clutch, you need to go back to driving school.

      Funny though

      Too bad they didn't photoshop a new interior, one not based on 90s pontiac dashs.

      Isn't Photoshop wonderful?

      Too bad the bronze trim around the shifter & gauges is still fugly. Photochop that out, and we're talking.

      Actually, if you look VERY closely at the original picture, there is a 3rd pedal. The pedal that's obvious is infact the clutch pedal. The brake pedal is almost completely blocked by the steering wheel.

      In the updated picture, the pedal placement is so far apart that it would make heel-and-toe almost impossible.

      #1. Clutchless manual transmission... now there's a nice driving challenge


      Not really...afterall, every European atumaker offers at least one variant of a clutchless manual. Of course they all use steering wheel paddles to shift. BMW's SMG is probably the best known, but Ferrari, Maserati, Audi all have similar systems.
