It’s a no-cost option in most markets.
It includes the Sport Chrono package.
Also included is Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV)
Traditionalists, purists, and real drivers want a manual transmission. It is a driving tool that is on the brink of extinction but even so, it remains the truest way for a driver to physically connect with the car’s powertrain. Porsche has not only built historically significant and extraordinary cars but they also know how to tune a shifter and a clutch. The new 992 Porsche 911 will be at its most involving with its 7-speed manual transmission.
The smartest thing Porsche will do, other than offering the gearbox, is make it a no-cost option. Not only that but selecting the 7-speeder will also entitle the lucky new owner to the Sport Chrono package, which comes along with dynamic engine mounts, rev-matching, PSM Sport mode (the mode switch wheel on the steering wheel with drive modes) as well as the dash-mounted stopwatch and the Porsche Track Precision App. As though that wasn’t enough, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with variable drive torque distribution is also included, as is a 35kg weight savings! It’s a win-win-win!
The downside is that, with the 7-speed manual gearbox, the 911 Carrera S is a little slower as the 0-100km/h sprint takes 4.2 seconds compared to 3.8 with the 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission.
Make ours a Miami Blue Carrera S 7-speed with Carrera Classic wheels, and a few other options, thanks.
