This 800hp electric Corvette has a manual transmission

Genovation is offering the GXE at CES this year, the first all-electric car with a seven-speed do-it-yourself gearbox.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

It's tough to make the Corvette Grand Sport any better, but the folks at Genovation might just have done it with the GXE.

The gas-powered engine is replaced with twin electric motors putting out 800 horsepower at the wheels and 700 pound-feet of torque.

Genovation was inspired by the round taillights found on the last generation Corvette.

An electric car is nothing new, but the GXE has a surprise: a seven-speed manual gearbox.

An eight-speed automatic is also available, which is a first.

The GXE has a range of 175 miles when "driven normally." Any bets on how many folks will do that?

The interior is reworked to feature massive amounts of Alcantara.

The eight-inch touchscreen is replaced by something closer to a tablet. Genovation claims GM's performance data recorder is still intact.

But it will cost you a cool $750,000 to own the first manual EV. Start saving now, folks. Keep scrolling for more photos of the Genovation GXE.
