May I take this opportunity to 100 per cent disagree with Andrew Lally (Inbox, evo 234) on his views regarding manual versus PDK gearboxes on the 991.2-generation Porsche 911 Carrera GTS? For track work I’d choose PDK every time, for the speed and accuracy of change as well as the ability to keep both hands on the wheel. And speaking as the owner of a manual 991, for the road the involvement of the manual makes for a far more satisfying experience than PDK.
On track I drive a supercharged Elise and the manual ’box is the one weak point of that car. Guy Hubball
