Sports cars Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S got a seven-speed manual gearbox, which became available as a free option

The new generation Porsche 911 sports car was first available with a manual gearbox. The Germans began to offer a seven-speed manual transmission as a free option for versions 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4 S.

The company noted that the options with a mechanical transmission turned out to be “slightly” slower than cars with an eight-speed PDK robot. For example, a Porsche 911 S with a robotic gearbox and Sport Chrono sport package picks up the first 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. At the same time, Porsche emphasized that the maximum speed will remain the same and will be 307 km per hour.

The mass of the car with a manual gearbox was 1496 kg, which is 38 kg lighter than a sports car with a robotic transmission. All cars with “mechanics” will receive a Sport Chrono package with special suspension and power plant settings, as well as with a limited-slip differential and a traction vector control system.

The eighth-generation Porsche 911 (index 992) was unveiled in November 2019 at the Los Angeles Motor Show. The coupe debuted in the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S. The model retained the classic rear-engine layout with a horizontal arrangement of a three-liter six-cylinder boxer.
