Default 2011+ IS250C in Stick

Did they come in manual in 2011+?

I am having such a hard time finding one anywhere all I see are 2010 and even those are limited...

Thanks for any help.

MY2011 was the last year for the IS 250 and IS 250 C to offer a manual transmission option.

I'm afraid that manual transmissions are a thing of the past. When I went to trade my 370z, the dealer didn't even want it because he said it had gotten too hard to sell them.

Has anyone driven one?

I have been looking for a manual trans convertible with a back seat. Any thoughts on how the IS250c with manual drive would be welcome.

My experience is Elise, S2000, and Miatas. I know it wont be as nimble...but I don't want an auto vert.

I was like you, and have only driven manuals in my past 11 years of car ownership, but the 250 seems really underpowered and I believe the manual that comes with it is quite dismal. You could dump quite a few mods on it to improve its response time, but I feel that the 350 might be the better buy even if you've got to roll with a paddle-shifter from here on out.
