If you switch to the sport mode it will change gears at a higher rev than normal drive. if you move the stick up or down while in sport mode you can engage the gears manually if its within its rev range, so it wont damage the motor. While in manual mode the transmission will shift to the next gear automatically when you reach redline. It will also downshift by itself if the car gets slow enough, but you can move change the gear manually to any gear as long as its within a safe rev range.

I believe all Coupes came with sport suspension, and its just traditional suspension so, no dynamic changes.

Sports mode just changes when the shifts happen, just hangs a little longer.
Manual just means that you can choose when to shift
