what if its a car thats computerized (as in 300 years advancments put in it) and no clutch is needed but it allows you to do the shifting your self.. as the aboved oister kukalaka said. ITS FICTION...

gees some people get need to get out from the basement with the blowup dolls and know theres not going to be a perfect movie.

I also think it's interesting that James T. Kirk drives his car into the Xindi blasted Earth trench and barely escapes with his young life. Perhaps he thought he could jump the trench like Evil knievel or something.
Its not the Xindi trench. It a mining quarry. The sign on the right side of the gate says: DANGER OPEN MINING QUARRY

The next TV Series should be called STARFLEET!

Hey, who cares about the car?! Why is no one mentining how impractical the number plate is. I wouldn't fancy trying to read that thing with multiple concussions and a corneal rupture as AnaKirk Jr speeds away from my broken body in a cloud of rebellious dust.

If it was a relic in a museum/private collection, then the plate would've been intended for cataloguing, rather than for identification out on the road...
