Interesting detail in the 991.2GT3 owners manual

“when changing gear, The accelerator can remain pressed when engaging and disengaging clutch, to ensure optimal speed compensation. In this case, the engine speed is controlled automatically.”

GT3 nanny state Question

Or is this now the Play Station Generation ...

Some superbikes have had "quick shifters" for a while now - cuts ignition and / or fuel supply for a hundredth of a second or so, for full throttle, clutchless upshifts.

The 991.2 manual GT3 also has rev matching for downshifts to make you sound like a heel & toe hero (as well as helping avoid engine braking locking up the wheels on severe downshifts!!). I went out last week in my mate's 991.2 GT3 (he's on here too) - it's savage!!! What a car!

Rick at Unicorn can map this feature in to any 996 / 997. Among many other cool stuff.

I’m all for a GT4 PDK/manual then ... will that be with a sequential type lever ?
That’s where we need to go I think .....

Sorry everyone, I know this is when you don’t take your foot off the gas but it looks like from the video you don’t push the clutch in either??? Is that right? The video was mental but wasn’t massively clear on this I must say.

No clutch! Now that is insanely cool! Now that is a bit more than could be achieved from a remap. Must be like driving a sequential.

Gee whizz , just managed to watch the video ..... seems a bit of a strange method there , made me wince each change , something doesn’t seem right changing like that ?

I’d like to try it myself but don’t know if I could do that to the gearbox ( subconscious may not let me !) not much mechanical sympathy there ......

Very impressive considering that was against a more powerful 2018 Turbo S PDK

A: utterly, utterly pointless
B: clear indication of how much faster a DCT is.

Having 3 pedals and not needing to use one of them Dont know

Might as well drive a PDK/Auto Hand

Much more fun driving a manual, heel and toe on downshifts, and rev matching on your upshifts Grin

The new GT3 is not so much a driver's as a car you can steer yourself. It's selling point will soon be proclaimed as 'a very fast, powerful car with autonomous steering'.

A great shame.

I’d love to have a go on that, looks fun Grin

I remember doing something similar in my cousins car when his clutch went. This was in the mid-90’s in a battered old 80’s Vauxhall Cavalier. Basically the drill was accelerate slowly until the speed matched 1st gear, then slip the gear lever out of 1st into 2nd (without the clutch) while feathering the accelerator. It worked, just, enough to get the car to the garage anyway

Ok, completely different to the clip Cunno embedded above but brought back memories lol
