Even a modern-ish Auto Alex, my 2010 Merc makes me howl if you mash the loud pedal in Sports+ mode on an A road or Motorway .............then you hit the B roads and it`s all over the place with shifts, even in manual mode...........which can also be quite entertaining Grin

Poor economy, poor performance, poor control & poor fun like for like. All in all poor driving experience.

Keep banging that drum Ade/Alex. Thumb

The biggest problem I have found in driving fast on unfamiliar roads is when you find you are going too quickly half way round the corner and taking your foot off the throttle upsets the whole balance of the car - often making things worse.

I adopted Left foot braking many decades ago (when I owned a 4 speed 911 Sportomatic) and found that if you keep the throttle open where it was and fed in a modest amount of left foot braking - the car (renowned at that time for spinning off in such circumstances) just pulled nicely back into line in much the same way many of the control systems do automatically now.

So I thought I would have liked a Tiptronic more but the throttle cuts out when you left foot brake (unless you double press it quickly in sinc) and that almost defeats the objective.

So although I find a tiptronic easier for such an old git as me - I have to agree that it is less inspiring when getting a move on.

However - driving my PDK Gen 2 to Oulton Park last weekend I found myself running late on that road from the M56 to the track. Long curves on the single carriageway road were tempting to use but frustratingly never quite seemed to reveal a long enough gap to overtake lorries, farm vehicles and slow drivers safely - but the PDK even in auto mode - was sensationally quick when the throttle was fully opened up and reminded me of driving a motorcycle - really exciting and overtaking in a fraction of the time I could have comfortably managed it in a manual or Tirtronic.

Apart from having the steering wheel switches the wrong way around (now I believe altered for the better) the PDK was superb.

When are you coming over to try it and our other oversized engines?

Baz

p.s. Beware trying left foot braking for the first time - make sure no one is behind you - your brain (well mine at least) couldn't handle it to start with and resulted in an emergency brake and my nose pressed against the windscreen - but once you can handle it it makes fast driving really easy and relaxed in a tiptronic and especially a PDK.

Unbelievably crass thread. You don't dig tiptronics? Okay, do you have to be such stuck up snobs with it?

I have a 964 targa tip. I also play a very physically demanding sport in a league. After a tiring match it's good to switch off, have coffee and not have to faff with gears in traffic.

What's your sport? Denigrating Porsches that don't meet with your approval?

What's next - anything sub-£50k to be laughed at?

Sad people with nowt better to do than "mine's better than yours".

Utterly pathetic.

It's just banter dude! I have a 996 turbo tip and find the image very amusing!! Each to there own. I came from a manual 996 c2 and loved it. To be honest with my turbo now I really do need both hands on the steering wheel at all times so the tip is perfect for me. Just need it to stop eating itself! As I say each to there own. My turbo is a rubbish track and is built very much for top speed events and A to B driving with the kids in the back. And it's perfect for the job. If I want 'raw' I take the atom out.

Anyone who actually uses their porsche as their car and experiences the daily drive traffic jams or the endless motorway hold ups trickling along and stop starting with a heavy clutch or indeed anyone who has a weakness in their ankle or knee who doesn't think a tiptronic is a sound idea is a die hard clutch ludite. F1 cars launched faster when left to a machine remember. My wife can launch my 996 off the line as fast as me. Its easy and very very fast and you don't need to be trying hard.
I have been driving predominantly autos for thirty years and have suffered remarkably few mechanical issues with them. Ironically my 996 is currently laid up with a gearbox ECU problem.
Friends and family have had way more issues with linkages and clutches on their manual cars.
