Wonder how a passenger is going to feel about that “wall” especially when they keep hitting the Hvac buttons

It's that way in most all cars, and as been for awhile. Yes, in auto mode, you can use the paddles to up- and down-shift, but it will revert back to automatic after a minute or two. The only difference here is that most auto TC or DCT cars have a shifter handle you move to the left to go full-time manual mode. This one apparently just has a button because there is no shifter.

The cars with shifter handles allow to you move it to the left into manual and up- or down-shift with either paddles or the shifter handle. On my F-Type and in my wife's Alfa Giulia, I always use(d) manual mode, and the shifter more than the paddles, because I'm so used to driving manuals, and that just feels more right to me. However, I'm not talking about trying to set fast laps.

Why would a mid engine car have such a giant center tunnel like that? It looks bigger than the last 3 generations.

Manual mode will keep it in manual permanently.

Because big gulps.... and planning for a future electric hybrid maybe? And... well it's not as wide as the C7 console.

All the better to reserve a place for batteries for the future front drive electric motors (speculative by the way).

TH, you got me by 1 minute.

So what's everyone think on the reverse button? Pull up like the C7 parking brake? Rest of them push?

The interior pics look nice. Certainly not the "Dollar Store" quality that some of the GM haters predicted.

So no shifter ****. The first Corvette without a shifter ****, another tradition gone.
Can't wait to hear from the round tail light crowd.

Regarding the parking brake button, it's probably off to the side because the DCT has a 'park' mode. So you won't need the parking brake as often as you would in a manual trans car. They can keep the center console real estate for more frequently used functions.

No need for one... makes for a much more versatile interior.

Good point... parking brake would truly only be used on steep hills.

If it's anything like a modern Volvo, it will auto detect when parking on an steep incline and engage the parking brake for you. Upon starting the car you would then hit a button to disengage the system.

the middle is "front end lift" or Front camera... holding out for lift on this one though!
last on the right I have no idea, Looks to be a pic of what would be a split window and maybe says AUX under it? Or possibly a lane keeping assist button?

Like normal... the photos are not full resolution so zooming in nets pretty bad results.
