i just dont think non turbo Pcars are really worthy. great cars and have their unique character blah blah blah, but smoking them all the time makes me not like them so much

hey if someone were to give me a bday gift i'd be happy to take a C2S manual and use the PDK money for some beer. i know that porsche has been making the same car for 40 years but the shape of the carrera just has some undescribable appeal. like someone said in another thread: every car nut has got to have a porsche at one point in life...

I think the porsche takes this one . That shape is truly timeless. If I only had more money.. Maybe I should move the US- the 911 sells for the same price as the M3 here in SA

the problem is, the paddles are garbage. they're like the paddles in the 335i. push for down, pull for upshift. I like the layout of the M-DCT better.

Gt porsche magazine said that Porsche are looking at a solution to the buttons since it has gotten a global thumbs down! The problem is that with proper paddles the dials are blocked in the current dash layout.The steering and its column is also too close to the cluster for proper paddle actuation. So thats a luck out for better paddles in the aftermarket. A solution is a dedicated shift up and shift down button setup to either the right or left side.
