Porsche 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S gets manual transmisson

If you were one of those people who missed a manual stick in the Porsche 911, then today is the day your wish come true. The German carmaker has announced a do-it-yourself, 7-speed gearbox arrival in the U.S market, well in time for 2020 driving season.

911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S gets 7-speed manula

The best part about this news is that the Carrera with a manual gearbox will be the bargain of the 911 range. Here’s the reason why?

Porsche is not only developing the manual transmission as a no-cost option on both the Carrera S and Carrera 4S, but it is also introducing the Sport Chrono kit to each 7-speed car at no extra charge. The said kit adds -

  • Dynamic engine mounts
  • Sport mode for the Porsche Stability Management system
  • Automatic rev-matching system
  • A mode knob on the steering wheel

The Sport Chrono package usually carries a price tag of $2,720 on the dual-clutch C2S and C4S. The manual Porsche 911 will come with Porsche Torque Vectoring and a mechanical limited-slip differential, rather than the electronic limited-slip diff on PDK-equipped vehicle.

Also, Porsche recently confirmed to a reliable source that it has no current plans to introduce the 7-speed manual option on the standard Carrera and Carrera 4. This is sure a bummer for fans of the less-potent 911; however, limiting the manual option to S models could attract buyers to a more expensive, 443 hp model.

Carrera 4S side

A manual stick is undoubtedly more engaging, a 911 fitted with one won’t be as quick as can be expected. For the hardtop Porsche Carrera S, the automaker is citing a 0 to 60 time of around 4 seconds and a top speed of 190 miles. In contrast, the PDK-equipped car can hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 191 mph.

Stay tuned with Zigwheels for more details, as Porsche promises to spill out more beans before the launch of the 7-speed version.
