Ironically the answer you seek was in your own video. The reason the DCT is a quicker transmission is because of the fact that the next gear is already selected and engaged. The time to shift is literally taken out of the equation altogether. Regardless though if you utilize the DCT with a stupid ass system such as the Cayman's it doesn't really matter, whatever gains you achieved are easily nulified, more so if the driver is frustrated and confused with it.

6MT for life... but I'm not in denial, a DCT trany is faster and as technology continues to improve the gap will only grow wider. That doesn't mean I'll stop driving MT though.
