Purists Rejoice: Next-Gen Porsche 911 GT3 to Feature Manual Gearbox

It was kind of a shock to many hardcore enthusiasts when Porsche announced it would be building the current-generation 911 GT3 without a manual gearbox. Though some would argue that the dual clutch PDK is advanced well beyond its segment, it just doesn’t have the same affect as a good ol’ fashion manual shifter.
“The GT3 is full of systems that make sense on the track,” said Preuninger. “But for the purist, there may be something lost. It is our long-term goal to have the customer decide between the two approaches.”
