    I can confirm, my 2019 GT1 has the full manual mode when it's in Sport Mode. I forgot and took off and it STAYED in 1st all the way until the governor kicked in at redline. It didn't upshift like all the other cars when I do that. I was taken aback. I have the "cable-linked" regular shifter, not the e-tronic one. I prefer my shifter. It's definitely full-manual mode though. It was an accident because my car is hardly even broke-in yet, and I didn't mean to be so hard on it, so early in the game.

    Did you have the shifter in the manual mode or had you used the paddle shifter to put it into manual mode?

    I thought I read somewhere (car and driver?) that the 2018 GT2 has a manual mode. The car has to be in sport mode with all the nannies off.

    My 2018 GT without the electronic shifter moves over to the left and you have to shift it in launch mode or it hits the redline, at least out of 1st gear it does. You can either use the paddle shifters, or you can move the shifter forward for upshifts, and pull back for downshifts.
