    DSG type transmission still eons away?

    Does anyone know if Porsche is making any progress on the dual clutch type of transmission? Any thoughts on a timetable for arrival in the Boxster models? Thanks in advance.

    Autoweek says it's close - 7 speed gear box.

    And my dealer says it isn't. My guess is it will arrive in two years time for the 08 model year as part of the two-year uplift cycle.

    Anyone care to start guessing how much Porsche will charge for this option?! I love traditional gearboxes and always will. But this is something I'm going to have to have!

    I'll open the bidding at $3000 for PDK

    Figure that it will cost more than the Tip, which is already US$3300--my guess is US$4k might be a little closer.

    Well VW charges minimal for the DSG but if I were Porsche I would wanna cash in like the PCCB option. I drive a tip in HK for obvious reasons and I find it just fine for city driving. It is definitely nothing compared to the DSG when it comes to manual shifting but I would not be surprised to see Porsche parallel running all 3 systems from stick, tip to DSG giving out manual and tip for free yet charging a huge premium for the DSG.

    My guess is that an announcement will be made very soon together with the facelift in 2008. I am in then but definitely not for the 2008 997 cos buying first generation of the DSG may not be a good idea so the 998 DSG is something to wait for.
