2013 Porsche 911 GT3: No Manual Gearbox?
According to Inside Line, Porsche is currently evaluating both the PDK double-clutch transmission and the seven-speed manual and only one will make it into production. The GT3 isn't far from hitting the market, so a decision should be taken soon.
August Achleitner, the head of the 911 project told the aforementioned source that he expects the PDK to win, as stick shifts can only be found on 30 percent of 911s. However, the situation might be different in the US, where there’s a higher demand for manuals and thus the new GT3 could come with such a box here.
