As though set in automobile stone, their unwritten rule goes that no matter the make, Porsche 911 will always have a manual gearbox. There was much hullabaloo when Porsche introduced the Turbo and GT3, both 911s without the gearbox.
The preferable options are the Dual-clutch automatic transmissions or well-sorted conventional automatics because of their economic and environmental value. They offer short shift actions and an impressive shift from one gear to the other. The fast gear shifts and excellent performance compliment the T7-speed manual transmission.
