The New Porsche 911 Receives a 7-Speed Manual Gearbox

Porsche has released information about the 2021 911 coupe. The main upgrade is a seven-speed manual gearbox for the Carrera S and Carrera 4S.

The 2021 Porsche 911 debuted with a 3.0-liter 450-hp engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. But now customers have a choice.

Oddly enough, the dynamics of the sports car with manual transmission have slightly deteriorated. If the PDK allows accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, then with a manual transmission it takes 4.2 seconds. The maximum speed remained the same – 308 km/h.

The Porsche 911 with manual gearbox is equipped with the Sport Chrono package, including the new tire temperature indicator from the 911 Turbo S. At low temperatures, the blue bar warns of reduced grip, and when the tires warm up, the color changes to white. The system is deactivated when snow tires are installed on the car.

The manufacturer has also added to the list of equipment the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) system with variable torque distribution, the automatic rev-match function for smooth downshifts, dynamic engine mounts, the switch of driving modes (Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, Wet and Individual), and the Porsche Track Precision App.

Besides, the Porsche InnoDrive system, which extends the capabilities of adaptive cruise control on cars with automatic gearbox, is also available for purchase. The new Smartlift function for all 911 versions allows the front end to be lifted automatically at corresponding locations where the vehicle is driven regularly. With the electro hydraulic system on the front axle, the ground clearance at the front apron can be increased by around 40 mm. The system saves the GPS coordinates of the current position at the push of the button.

The updated list of options includes the leather package 930 in the style of the first 911 Turbo, new lightweight and noise-insulated glazing (minus 4 kg), interior lighting and a new body color – Python Green.
