    Tiptronic...made by Mercedes

    Proof that the 997 Turbo Tiptronic is made by Mercedes.

    Re: Tiptronic...made by Mercedes

    I always thought that all recent Tiptronic/Tiptronic S are bought from MBZ.

    Re: Tiptronic...made by Mercedes

    Where did you find that label?

    Re: Tiptronic...made by Mercedes

    722 ? doesn't this number have anything to do with the SLR ?

    Re: Tiptronic...made by Mercedes

    The 5 speed auto box from MB is just about as bullet proof as it gets, very good choice by Porsche. If the box is good enough for my CLS55, it's good enough for my Turbo.

    I wonder if Porsche used the same box for 996 or did they source that from Audi. The one in 996 is one of the worst autobox ever made, I surely hope it wasn't a MB one.

    True. I just wanted to finish with rumours that the current 997 Turbo auto tranny is made by Aisin (manufacturer of Cayenne Tiptronic and 997/987 manual gearboxes).
    Btw: apparently Mercedes uses a similar version for their bi-turbo charged V12 engines, this is why they have five gears only and not seven.

    I meant where on the tranny did you find it? Under the car? Under the trim piece, etc.

    Very true Whoopsy. There are lots of guys with heavily modded AMG's and I've never heard of tranny issues. I was pushing about 650 lb./ft. with my Kleemann modded E55 and never an issue.
