    Manual cars are from another era. I love manual cars but will probably never buy another one again. On another note a 612 manual just sold for $250k and one is for sale for $399k... Time to ditch it? angel

    Your Singer will be manual.

    It is a vintage car with modern touches...


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 R (2016)

    Totally agree that PDK car is faster than manual on track, but I'm not tracking for money or price, and not a lot of cars in my advanced group can pass me, I guess I will stick to my manual RS on track for now.

    I have PDK in my GTS CC, only just driving it in auto mode so far, will try to shift it and see if I like it.

    As for now, I still prefer to buy my sport cars in manual, as they will stop making manual one day and I don't want to look for a used one.  Plenty of time to buy PDK or auto-shift sport cars, they are everywhere.

    Well plenty of time to buy manual cars too, they spent like 100 years making manual cars and there are certainly plenty to be picked from smiley

    When I am on the track, my target is the car in front, I HAVE to pass it no matter what, that's why I have to be fast.

    But when i get to the front with no cars to be passed. I lose concentration, my mind wanders of and make all sorts of mistakes  But that's also the perfect time to drive a manual car, all sorts of time for me to kill.

    Driving back home ( 2.5h ) I took the GT4 through  the country roads . There the manual was wonderfully entertaining . It has it place for spirited drives on open roads .
