"The new GT3 is likely to have just the one transmission option: a PDK seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic. The lack of a manual option in the GT3 is sure to cause controversy among 911 purists, especially after the 911 switched to electric steering. The PDK transmission is also heavier than the manual, something at odds with the GT3s lightweight approach."

i was davastated after reading this. bigcry.gif PDK... shakehead.gif

personally, i felt that it is such a pity. i always maintained that Porsche builts true track cars for the fact that all the GTs are manual, i can no longer say so... knife.gif

many might disagree, what about you?

sometimes we have to move with technology too i guess. i know it takes away some of the fun factor, but thats progress i guess? biggrin.gif just a sign of the times lah that most exotic manufacturers are phasing out manual ... owners are getting younger (and either dont know manual or not interested in manual anymore)

Brother, just like when they adopted liquid cooling for the 996...
But PDK is faster than manual so the car is "better" at the expense of the spirit.

Win some lose some, ok lah.

transmission has got nothing to do with cooling system leh...

no doubt PDK is faster than manual but the driver's involvement is much less...

Way to go, Porsche.

This is a company that listens and knows not to give up too much soul and spirit and pure classic fun in the name of advancement

last GT3 had a very track focused design with luoves , side intakes alike the turbo, I loved it!
With the lastest 991.2 , Porsche GT division somehow decided to give it a "clean look"... strangely I'm growing to "like" it too ....

Purist mah. Real man and all that nice stuff with old school. That's why every one who needs to show who is really in control still stick to manual. Just like at home switching TV channels. The real man still use manual. Walk to the TV to change channel n walk back to the sofa 😁

manual cars are nice when there are long open roads, or early hours. Whenever i get stuck in peak hour traffic, im so glad ive left the manual at home.  

 

a real man, gets his GF or wife to change the TV channels on the TV without leaving the sofa  [:)]  and btw honey, wheres my whisky on the rocks.
