    Great feedback, BCSNGAN. Also, the PDK’s consistently produce zero to sixty times LOWER than the manual’s!!

    Loeser- Sorry you didn’t find the review helpful. Please indicate which part of the sport mode explanation you found poor, as I certainly want everyone to understand it properly. My intention in the video was to share the new information on the 991, with the new, re-worked PDK transmission. Launch control came out in 2009, so I’m sure you can find demonstrations of it online. I am Porsche Certified, and a “Brand Ambassador,” but I will try harder in the future to get even better! Thanks!

    Pentru- the PDK was introduced first, however, the all new 7 speed manual gearbox has just been released! Reviews are available, just google it. Let me know if you need more information, and thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback, MOb. Sorry you didn’t get any benefit out of watching it. I’m kind of new at this, so I hope you’ll forgive me.

    Just so you know, for the first time ever, POWER folding mirrors are available as an option on the new 991. Also, forgive my speech, I meant to say Thin-Film Transistor, not transmitter. Finally, most people do care about the Navigation that each car offers, and Porsche’s is excellent, so I thought I would mention it. Thank you.

    Yes, you can trust a machine to change gear for you, but it takes the fun out of it.

    He said revving like a big v8, meaning, I think, that the car is traveling on the highway like a big american v8 would. He doesn’t mean the engine is a v8 or like a v8. He just means able to cruise at low rpm. That was my understanding a what he said.

    As long as the gt3/RS never comes PDK I’ll be happy.

    I test drove one of these 991 just 2 days ago. The PDK is awesome, lightning quick and easy… but I would still get a manual…

    but I think while the manual is more involving… I could see how real racers would love dual clutch transmissions so they can focus on their throttle modulation and their racing lines. I wouldn’t say ALL people that get PDK are lazy. Everyone has their own preference. Maybe the 0.4 second faster shifts are important to some enthusiasts, who knows.

    @97c2s993 The car does have sound symposer, and is activated when ‘sport’ mode is selected. Sport exhaust just takes it one step further with an even louder (and awesome) exhaust.

    manual will definitely unfortunately become obsolete, especially because transmissions are starting to have outrageous numbers of gears (ZF 8-speed) and double clutches. also in the future, there will be CVT’s which have higher top speeds and always deliver torque

    I’m from Europe and can drive manual very good, working with torgue ( knowing engine characteristics). But its the melody of the past. I prefer dual-clutch gear,from the same reason as the new model design, led and so on.

    Sorry, but this car doesn’t have the sports exhaust, looking at the buttons…I have it…so no ‘sound symposer’ on this configuration…but nice video otherwise

    Just an FYI… TFT displays are “thin film transistors”… not thin film transmitters. 🙂
