    Sport Shift Now Available

    I just thought you all should be aware; that amongst other
    options, Porsche AG has released "Sport Shifter" to production, if the car is changable. My 997 has it, and it is one of my favorite options, so consider it; you'll
    enjoy it ! Revvv

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    My dealer is trying to put the order change through now on a November build. Thanks much for the heads up.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    what is sport shift???

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    The sport shifter option for the manual 6-speed shortens the shift throw 35%, but apparently, when cold, requires some extra effort when shifting.

    I think it always requires more effort than the standard shifter.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    Yeah it does. I thought this had been out for a while. I was playing around with a Guards red on tan interiored Carrera S cabriolet that had the short shifter. i was comparing it with the normal shifter, and yeah, it's much quicker and crisper. I liked it very much.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    I had included the Sport Shift on my original order for the Cayman S, but dealer called 3 weeks ago to say it was not available and would be back ordered. I cancelled it in order to expedite my order, didn't want to hold up the car for it. So should I request a change order now to get it added back in?

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    LStorm:

    I also originally ordered the sport shifter, but canceled it to keep my November build. Based on REVVV's opening comment, I called the dealer on Friday and changed my order. It was accepted.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    If your Cayman S is changable; it is something that can be added. Call your dealer and ask them for an update, and ammend it if possible. Many November cars are now unchangable, though. I just think it really makes the car feel a lot more like a little race car ! Revvv

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    Thanks. My dealer was able to add back this option, as well as the Guards Red Guages. Computer accepted the changes. Good news.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    I tried the other day, dealer told me unchangable - build day of Novemver 2nd. Have ordered the shift-kit and will install after the car arrives.

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    Friedman, is your car RHD for Japan? If so, that's a very early build date! When will you collect the car?

    Re: Sport Shift Now Available

    Left hand drive - manual (only available in LHD). I'm expecting the car to arrive the very end of December or early January. Am guessing I'll be able to take delivery on January 6th.
