Going with the speculation of the Chevrolet SS possibly having the same engine as the C7 Corvette, can we also expect the SS to have a manual transmission with paddle shifters just like the vette???

C7 Corvette paddle shifters and manual transmission:

That's something I didn't notice before. I understand the concept of rev matching, just don't know how that works with a manual and paddle shifters, although I wouldn't really call them "Shifters" b/c they are not doing the shifting.

Rev matching is a feature for the manual transmission, It is basically double clutching or if the gearbox has straight cut gears it is essentially like a race car gearbox. The most common term here in Australia is a dogbox.
The rev matching on a dog box enables you to match the engine speed with the road speed and the gear will slot in without the need of the clutch pedal. not generally recommended in a synchromesh transmission. I am not very technical when it come to explaining things I am better at doing it. you can look up youtube videos there are people who can explain and demonstrate the concept.

Those aren't paddle shifters on the c7, they're switches to turn the rev matching option on/off. Not sure if the engine just blips the throttle when u push in the clutch or what.

I guess I'm not sure how the auto rev matching would work on a manual either. How would the engine know how high to rev because it wouldn't know what gear you were going to downshift to.
