Next generation Porsche 911 (991) to get 7 speed manual transmission
This report has been confirmed by Car and Driver
. We are all used to seeing 7 speed dual clutch and automatic transmissions, some even going up to 8, but no traditional manual transmissions on the market for sports cars have 7 forward gears. That will all change with the next generation Porsche 911. We are happy to see Porsche catering to the enthusiast and not abandoning the manual gearbox as so many others are doing. Expect to see further details when the new model is revealed in September at the Frankfurt auto show.
