You can have your cake and eat it too with the PDK! Porsche honestly makes one of the smoothest and most precise dual clutchers in the league, you can finger blast them for spirited fun, or slip into auto mode when you just want to go homeI think that I am going to go with a manual on this car. Most of the time I prefer automatics, but this car is going to be for the purpose of driving, and that makes me want to have it as a manual so I feel more connected to the car.
the PDK has been around for some time and its used in every model except for Cayenne (and maybe Panner) so the cost has been well amortized at this point...I've never driven with the PDK transmission so maybe I will really like it. I'm definitely willing to give it a try.
Do you think they would stay away from that in the interest of keeping the price of the 718 down, or is it not that expensive to produce?
