This surely has to knock the prices of the 991.1 a bit. I hope it knocks the 997 and 996 a bit to although probably less so.

The only problem is people with lots of money tend to be lazy drivers so I am sure the number of manual GT3 sold will be low. I should not all of them but minimum effort certainly seems to be the norm.

Long live the manual.Thumb

Cheeky buggers!

Just read the manual is a "No cost option"!!

FFS

I note to ADD a PDK on the standard models is £2,388 Mad


There is no rhyme or reason to how Porsche price the GT3 and the options on it. The standard car is the same price as a nicely specced GTS and much cheaper than a 911 Turbo.

Ultimate halo product/pricing. And what a product it is!

9000 rpm...my oh my.

Should offer them to long term GT3 owners who have not flipped for a profit.

Quite a statement there young man......... What evidence do you have to make that assumption re ' people with lots of money tend to be lazy drivers' ?

The split of PDK/ manual remains to be seen but even so the description that a PDK driver is a 'lazy driver' is more than a bit inaccurate.....

Mainly down to my hamfisted driving skills and being lazy!

Wowee......
Strong admission ...but...I'm not sure that it's the same reason for all PDK choices ....there is obviously more input in the manual and it is definitely more of going back to our basic skills when we all drove manual cars and 'automatic ' gearboxes were not the norm , but I guess that everyone has their reason for making their individual choices ....

I would like to think that there will be a good number of manual boxes will be specified to justify Porsche's decision to reintroduce the choice, especially after all the media / public outcry when the choice was denied for the gen 1 iteration.

Time will tell ......

It's a beautiful version ...as usual....personally , I think it should have 4 seats .....😀😎😎🤓🤓
