Porsche Announces Manual Transmission for 2020

Geared Up: Porsche Announces Manual Transmission for 2020

November 11, 2019 by Nate Chapnick

Manual gearheads were feeling a little left out of the Porsche 911 party for 2019, but no fear, the seven speed is here. At no additional charge, customers can select this option as an alternative to the standard 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission. The seven-speed manual comes paired with a standard Sport Chrono Package. This package includes Dynamic Drivetrain Mounts, PSM Sport Mode, a rev-match function and the mode switch on the steering wheel which allows the driver to select between Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and the customizable Individual mode. As on the previous generation 911 Carrera S and 4S models, the manual transmission versions come with a standard mechanical limited-slip differential including Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), replacing the fully variable, electronically controlled limited slip differential that is standard on the models equipped with PDK. The 911 Carrera S with manual transmission can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 4 seconds and reach a top track speed of over 190 mph. The MSRP for the 2020 911 Carrera S with manual transmission is $113,300, while the 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with this option retails for $133,400 – both not including the $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee. Exepct the 2020 Carrera S and 4S models with the seven-speed manuals to reach US dealers in the spring of 2020.
