In anticipation of picking up my (new to me) Gen 2 C2 Carrera from the excellent Spider Detailing, I got talking with my brother today about 997.2 production numbers, rarity and so forth.

I believe I am correct in stating that some 10.5k narrowbody 3.6 Carreras were produced. What with the excellent PDK being the first choice for most people’s transmission the manual cars seem pretty thin on the ground. Apparently only around 10% made with a manual box. Can this be true? That would mean just over 1000 units. Seems petty crazy if that’s the case and rather a rare beast?..

Mot sure about actual numbers but PDK was the gearbox of choice at the time. You must also consider at the time of release, there was the financial crisis in full swing, so less cars were produced than the models before and after.

Looks lovely James. I like the stick-on plate. You’ve got to love the clean lines of a base Carrera.

Cheers! No rear wiper either. Only visual problem is ride height when parked next to PASM carrera S.

I’ve heard similar figures mentioned for our ‘misery spec’ Carreras before. 10% manual feels a little low though. Dont know

Enjoy yours when you get it. It’ll sound like a sewing machine compared to your 993!

Only 7190 C2 narrow bodied Gen2 Coupes were produced but even so 1000 seems low. There's probably only that many in the UK though.

EDIT: 3908 Cabs would probably give the 10.5k you first stated.

approximately 997 Gen 1 3.6 Carrera about 60% were manual

That dropped to 40% as manuals for the 3.6 Gen 2


which drops further to 20% as manuals for 991 3.4 Carrera

If the data on howmanyleft is to be believed then the figure is around 600 between 2008-2011. https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/?page=1&q=porsche+911

This includes
911 Carerra: 122
911 Carerra 2: 437
911 Carerra 2 Coupe: 4


My V5 lists my car as a 911 Carerra 2

'Howmanyleft' is an indication of UK registrations rather than Production figures.

That 600 figure confirms that the 3.6 is probably less common than the 'S' in the UK. It doesn't show the split between manual and PDK cars though.

Hamster, nice motor chap. Looks great in white Thumb

It’s a bit mad if those production numbers are even remotely accurate. I’d love the true world wide production numbers for all 3.6 manual variants. That would be ace. I’ll have a hunt.

In the meantime; enjoy those base model Gen 2 Carreras because they seem quite rare

Over 76k Gen 2 cars were produced in total so the worldwide total number of manual cars would have been far greater than 1300.

I'm pretty sure that the actual number of manual and PDK cars aren't available to view anywhere. The 1300 figure you mention may have been a guess seen on here regarding the total number of UK cars.

Given that figure of 76K my figure of 1300 is probably a load of bollox Floor
As sure they would have made a lot more in that case, would love to know the number of UK manuals.

Very nice I was looking for a Gen 2 C4 as well but there wasn't many on the market when I was looking.
