  1. Cadillac ATS-V

Under the hood of the Cadillac ATS-V is a twin turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out a whopping 464 HP with 445 lb-ft of torque. And that is enough to launch the ATS-V from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of an astonishing 189 mph. And even though the ATS-V doesn’t have a V8, it is still a proper muscle car and precision machine available in two-door form and as a manual.

  1. Dodge Challenger Hellcat

It’s only when you press the throttle to unleash the fury of those 707 supercharged horses when you can feel the brutality of the Hellcat package and all the power going to the rear wheels. The 0 to 60 mph times are in the high three-second range. Also, this car can top 200 mph. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a muscle car coupe that can go fast and burn rubber in any gear. And best of all, it with a six-speed heavy duty manual transmission.

  1. Jaguar F-Type

Decades after Jaguar produced a proper sports coupe, they offer the F-Type. It’s a crazy and brutally fast muscle car from England with a powerful supercharged V8 and glorious soundtrack. Despite being somewhat heavy for a sports car and rough around the edges, the F-Type is fantastic, fun to drive, and a properly fast machine. There are several engines to choose from and almost all come with a six-speed manual.

  1. Ford Fiesta ST

The Ford Fiesta is one of the smallest, most inexpensive and least powerful cars on this list. However, it is one of the exciting, none the less. The Fiesta ST is one of the few cars in the compact car class that gets 197 HP from its 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. Of course, it comes with a six-speed manual for the ultimate driving experience.

  1. Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport

The Toyota Tacoma is a good truck, capable of towing, carrying and crossing rough terrain while still looking presentable. And it comes with a comfortable, high-quality interior. The engine lineup consists of several good engines starting with a fuel-efficient 2,7-liter V6. For off-road fans, there is the TRD Pro trim, which adds the components to make the Tacoma into a rock crawler and desert warrior. The interesting thing is the fact that you can get it with the manual.

  1. Porsche Cayman S

For over 20 years, the Porsche Boxster/Cayman has been one of the best, most affordable cars. The mid-positioned flat-six engine, rear wheel drive, signature Porsche quality, and perfect handling made the Boxster or Cayman a favorite for twisty roads. It offers you 90 percent of the Porsche 911 driving feel for 60 percent of the 911 price, which is a great deal. However, in true Porsche fashion, the Cayman comes with a manual transmission. Although it is slower than the automatic model, this is the one you should get.

  1. Mini John Cooper Works Clubman All4

The Mini is a benchmark car in terms of driving dynamics, precision steering and a pure hot hatch feel. And the newest John Cooper Works edition doesn’t disappoint. With a 228 HP four-cylinder engine, it is one capable urban runabout. That is especially true if you get the Clubman with all-wheel drive and a manual transmission.

These are the 20 cars with a manual transmission you should buy right now. Which one was your favorite? Now you have a good reason to learn how to drive a stick.
