Porsche to bring cars with manual gearboxes

STUTTGART: Porsche hoping it provides a point of difference for car performance, promise to keep offering its sports cars with a manual transmission in future.
Brand has followed other rivals in deleting a three pedal option from 911 such as the hard core GT3 and top end Turbo models in favor of a faster shifting dual clutch automatic.
Product director August Achleitner said that Porsche is looking to carry on development of manual gearboxes in standard Carrera models for at least the expected in future.
We should offer a manual in the future or not because the sales numbers of the dual clutch PDK is really high in some markets.
He said the next generation to develop a new manual gearbox or to carry it over from its predecessor. Competitors do not offer a manual car and it could be a specific characteristic of the 911 that you can still get a manual gearbox.
