I have been driving for 30 years and my first 20 years was with manual transmissions. The past ten years have been automatics and I hated them. This is very geeky, but the other day I "made pretend" I was driving a manual in my Model S. The car has so much pick-up that I found I was "shifting" every second. The key was to not let off the accelerator all the way when "shifting" because I wanted to get close to neutral without regen. Anyway, it was pretty cool and I got to thinking.....If Tesla made a virtual manual shift kit for the Model S, I would be first in line to buy one. They could have a dummy clutch and shifter and set a program that makes engine sounds over the speakers. When the "clutch" is depressed, you can rev the "engine" compete with a tach on the display. It shouldn't be all that difficult to do. They can synchronize the clutch and accelerator to move the car accordingly and have the shifter change the rev sounds to match the "gear' that you're in. I know this is nuts but it would be so cool.
