2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S, Carrera 4S gain 7-speed manual option

Purists rejoice! For 2020, the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S models are available with a 7-speed manual transmission. At no cost!

Replacing the standard 8-speed dual clutch PDK transmission makes acceleration significantly slower. The PDK 911 Carrera 4S has a 0-100km/h time of 3.7s, but the 7-speed manual model requires 4s for 0-60mph.

The manual 911 Carrera S and 4S also have a mechanical torque vectoring limited slip differential instead of the PDK model’s electronic LSD.

7-speed manual models have Sport Chrono with dynamic drivetrain mounts, sport mode and rev matching as standard.
