There is some hope, I think. Manuals are still opted for in 50% (or better) of the BRZ/FR-S, GTI and Mustang, to name a few. GTI is especially interesting to me, as the fantastic DSG is a option.
No maker is dumb enough to turn its back on 50% of it's buyers (except, maybe, for Nissan, who only offers the Maxima, the so-called "four-door sports car" with a CVT).
