It looks like a 911 no doubt. laugh.gif laugh.gif After all, why fix something that ain't broke, right. I guess it is what's underneath the sheetmetal that matters!

The new carrera S can do 0-60 in 4.3s... Impeessive. Wonder what the new 911 turbo can do!

Totally agree with you!!! 911 is a success so many changes might destroy this iconic car! I'm glad Porsche always keeps it safe when upgrading the 911

Should I be offended? laugh.gif

Oh well, looks are subjective. And there are many more people who have problems with Subaru's designs than Porsche's. I've actually owned 2 gens of the WRX before - bugeye and cockeye, but I would never go for a hatch (which reminds me of a Starlet or old Civic hatch or something). Again, no offence, yah? biggrin.gif

And a 7MT sounds like a whole lot of fun to learn. wub.gif

I suppose it might look like this: porsche_7spd_layout.jpg

If the 7th gear is a dog-leg meant for autobahn/NSH fuel-saving only, it should be fine.

Now, don't I feel like the ignorant a------e. blush.gif

Thought it was a mistype on RadX's part - sorry lah annah/thambi (depending on your age). laugh.gif

But 991 < 997? Weird to go 993, 996, 997, then 991, right? Unless you meant 987 - but that's a Boxster, not a 911. unsure.gif

If its a close ratio 7-clogger, maybe the driver has to decide which gear to 'skip' for normal leisurely driving.... if it has overdrive for say top two gears, prob'ly he can go 1-2-4-6 (or7) if he's not in a hurry? it depends on the 'gate-pattern' also i guess, unless its and '+', '-' thingy smile.gif

Fairly sure you have to "row" through the gears - hence the excitement over the 7 speeds.

I suppose it might look like this:

If the 7th gear is a dog-leg meant for autobahn/NSH fuel-saving only, it should be fine.

The pattern shown seems suitable for tracks (or winding, fast roads) as 3,4,5, maybe 6 which are the freq use gears, grouped in user-friendly shift path for the hand.... no?
2nd is seldom use except for real 'tricky' turns, 6,7 need real long straights to reach... my guess only smile.gif
