991 GT3 will have no manual transmission
Bit of a watershed moment: the 991 GT3, if you believe Autocar magazine, will only be offered with a PDK dual clutch paddle shifter.
Porsche follows Ferrari ditching the third pedal. We have no doubt about the performance advantages but how do you feel about not getting a choice, even a silly one like a 7 speed manual? Luddite 911 owner demographic no firmly in Panamera/Cayenne age group?
I will admit this might put a dent in my "depreciated 997 GT3" ownership plan.
