Seven Speed Double-Clutch Gearbox

Porsche aren’t giving any secrets away, but they’ve recently filed patent applications for a seven speed double-clutch gearbox.

The new transmission will replace the outgoing five speed tiptronic box and will see use in their 997, Boxster and Cayman model range.

The system was originally created for the
[u:ZMBWYeK3xL]
, but development took longer than expected, meaning it won’t be seen until the
[u:ZMBWYeK3xL]
range are debuted at next years Frankfurt Motor Show.

Wolfgang Durheimer, Porsche’s head of R&D, was obviously upbeat about the new seven speed system, stating “It will take us to the next performance plane, particularly in terms of acceleration.”

clearly a partnership with VW and Audi's Semi/Full Auto Paddle shifting double clutch DSG gearbox (bit of a mouth full) has helped

which will enable the 997 Turbo get back to compete with the likes of the Fezza F430 et al...

Read in a USA Mag that Porsche will be bringing out a model update for one car of their range every 12 weeks!

US market IIRC slightly different as buyers make a huge deal about cars by model year

i.e. they are sold on 'it's a "2006 997 C2" v the new "2007 997 C2" which means they've added something to the standard spec for 2007 etc etc
