A sports car without a real manual drive is just not a real sports car IMO...

Have you driven a dual clutch before?  You can drive it like a manual.  Best of both worlds.

Yes, and it's still not the same to me when compared to a traditional manual tranny with a clutch pedal. I driven a couple of cars with dual clutch tranny using the "+" and "-" shift knob in the console as well as the paddle shifter on the steering wheel but the input I get is still not the same as a traditional manual tranny with a clutch pedal. I feel like the car's computer is doing too much of the input.

With that said, I know the traditional manual tranny with a clutch pedal is dying fast and I heard the DCT is also dying right behind it because most drivers still prefer driving cars with auto tranny.. ???
