    2011 Turbo with 6-speed ?

    I am hearing a lot of conflicting information.  I am ready to buy a Turbo (sold my Carrera S and miss driving a Porsche) but want a 6-speed (traditionalist :-) ......the PDK and added cost of S not something i like.  Does anyone know whether a std Turbo with 6-speed will be offered ? Or do i have to wait for MY 2012

    Don't know if I understand you correctly, but PDK is only compulsory in the Turbo S. The standard Turbo comes with 6 speed as standard and PDK as an option.

    Maybe even a brand new 7 speed manual, with 7th being a fuel efficient highway gear and a shorter ratio for faster acceleration. The turbo will certainly come with a traditional stick shift do not be worried.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: 2011 Turbo with 6-speed ?

    This was a specific question re 2011.  I have only seen Turbo S cars so far and was wondering if 2012 and the 998 are the next time we see manual Turbo's

    While most of the dealers have a number of Turbo S' in stock, I'd check with your local dealer to see when they are getting '11 Turbos with 6 spd in. The US configurator still shows a turbo with 6 spd as being available.
