    Re: Next two brands to offer Manual Gearbox?

    ...whip  by a traffic cop at 9/10 ths on a public road  piloting the slowest and crappiest handling  new vehicle of any sort available on the market whether it has a manual or automated gearbox and see what happens ....if the track is your playground  and a  stopwatch is your holy grail ....sure get the PDK 

    Smiley

    If you need to drive at 9/10 to get pleasure from a car and that's your purpose on the road then you bought the wrong car. And that's the whole point of the other thread about the 991.2. My California, 612, Mini or Vantage at 3/10 give me great pleasure and that's why they are still in the garage.

     

    Please reread carefully what I wrote ...you are responding to me in a way tha indicates you have oppositely  interpreted what I had previously written in response in my strong advocacy in support of having Porsche offer a choice  to own and casually drive a manual on a public road , even on their latst GTx models ,  even if scores of today's " performance " cars and sport utes can run any pre- mid 80s or earlier sports cars into a canyon road ditch  .  Personally, I have no interest in any manuals ever again .

    If I had a GT3RS , it would be PDK, never see a track and used at speed limits on local roads only , letting traffic pass me ...that would give me great pleasure, even as I drive my other cars even family cars at twice the pace

    You have denigrated the majority of the high performance sport car buyers claiming they don't know how to drive. Yet, you find offense when it is pointed out that manual is like masturbation. WHAT ARROGANCE! Smiley

    That's the best you can do?  One never posted about someone not knowing how to drive a hi-po car; hence the true emerges.   I don't care if you want or require an automatic transmission, I enjoy a manual.

    I am trying to decipher your post. You may have had one two many.Smiley

    However, I now see that I confused your post with Bi-Turbo who claimed most of us who prefer double clutch cannot drive. Smiley

    Backpedaling from your own post?   There is nothing confusing or incomprehensible with any of the posts made by anyone.

    Well...this is an old cliche but I have proven it wrong so many times that I'm already tired of it. Smiley Smiley

    Also a reason I do not have a certain group of friends anymore... Smiley "Undercover daddy" (nickname given by that group) was preeettttyyy fast in his PDK car. Smiley

    The choice of gearbox has nothing to do with driving skills but I can see where this misjudgment comes from, especially in the US or other countries where automatic trannies are quite usual and manual is more of an exception.
