They only sold something like 500 manual G70s in 2019...but I do agree with you. Every manufacturer is losing out on those sales. It's too bad they never made the 3.3T with the manual.
If they gave the 3.3T the 6MT I would actually have bought one since I originally wanted manual sedan, but ultimately went with the 2er. The G70 is a really good car and pairing it to the manual would give it a serious advantage since the 2.0T is a rough engine, however it is getting replaced with a new 2.5T 4-cylinder so hopefully it will be improved.
