Pure, direct, precise. Short shift movements and an optimum transition from one gear to the next. That’s exactly what you would expect of a Porsche manual gearbox.
What you might not have expected is a 7-speed manual gearbox that combines a high level of sporty performance with an equally high level of efficiency and offers extra comfort for longer journeys. It’s an exceptional innovation, and not only in the sports car segment.
The design of this manual gearbox is based in principle on that of Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. The additional 7th gear, however, has a long ratio, which reduces torque and helps to reduce fuel consumption. Lower engine revs at fast driving speeds also ensure a high level of comfort on long stretches of road. In addition, a gear indicator in the rev counter reminds you which gear has been selected. The upshift indicator in the instrument cluster helps you actively conserve fuel. Thanks to the elevated center console, the gear lever is within easy reach – ideal for sporty gear changes.
The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera (991) with the world’s first 7-Speed manual transmission is in stock at Prestige Imports in Lakewood, CO. To schedule a test drive in a manual transmission 991, contact one of our Porsche Sales Specialists at (303)238-8101
