This is amazing if it’s true.
Car & Driver is reporting that Porsche is busy working away at a 7-speed manual transmission to compliment the 7-speed automatic for the iconic 911. They apparently were able to extract this info with the reasoning that an extra gear would help out in the fuel efficiency department.
This would be the first 7-speed manual ever produced from Porsche for the 911. There may be a premium for it, which I’d gladly pay.
Sounds like Porsche has been paying attention to Car & Driver’s “save the manuals” campaign.[Car & Driver]
