    sport shifter

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry I haven't posted lately, but I now have a question...

    Are there any photos of the 997 with the sport shifter? I secretly hope that in addition to a shorter lever action for the gearshift, it will also have a different appearance. The standard gearshift looks to VW-esque for me.

    Thanks,

    mcdelaug

    I think the length is the same from the end that shows. The shorter throw is achieved by changing the leverage beneath the shift boot where you can't see it.

    It is probably the exact same shift knob as standard shifter I bet.

    Re: sport shifter

    it is the exact same knob, there was a picture in the thread which dhayek posted of the tequipment catalog - it just shows the length of the throw differance that's all. Search under user dhayek.

    I think there is no difference in looks. I might get mine installed next week or so and if there is a difference in looks, I'll post a picture. I'll also post a picture of the kit so you can see how the kit looks.

    Re: sport shifter

    It will be interesying to learn if the kit is the shifter itself (ala 996) or the linkage on the transmission.
    Look forward to a foto

    Re: sport shifter

    I would be interested in getting this short-shifter kit here in the US. Does anybody know who might sell it to the US? Thanks.

    I think it is just the linkage but we'll see about it.

    Should be available at any official Porsche dealer for retrofit through Tequipment.
    And of course it is available as an option for new cars.

    I heard the shifter is EXACTLY the same one B&M makes. The Porsche one is black powder coated, the B&M one is blue.

    Your answer refers to the 996 short shifter. The original question at the top of the thread refers to 997. Since the 997 has a completely new transmission, how likely is it that the 996 short shift lever assembly will match up to the shift throws needed by the 997 'box, quite apart from the 996 lever's leather boot not installing straight into 997 center console.

    Oops...! I was wrong again.

    Perhaps B&M makes the _997_ sport shifter?
