    7-speed double-clutch for future Porsches

    Porsche readying seven-speed DSG for lineup

    Porsche is getting ready to roll out a new seven-speed twin-clutch Direct-Shift Gearbox for everything from the Boxster to the forthcoming GT1 supercar, according to a new report by AutoWeek. Citing patent filings, the magazine said Porsche appeared to be planning to offer the technology on all its models. Porsche has long offered customers a choice of either a standard manual gearbox, or a Tiptronic automatic transmission. The DSG system would likely replace the Tiptronic technology, and could even woo some six-speed fans due to its incredible shift speed. According to AutoWeek, Porsche had hoped to have DSG ready for the launch of the 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo, but fell short of that goal.

    This is what many here suspected, but at least they were able to successfully turn old technology off their parts bin into a healthy profit.

    I wonder if they'll be able to fit an LSD in with that transmission. Won't be very suitable for power upgrades, I reckon.

    Re: 7-speed double-clutch for future Porsches

    since the the dsg is pretty close to a manual, construction wise, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Re: 7-speed double-clutch for future Porsches

    Is DSG going to be available for the Cayenne as well?
