Porsche has expanded its transmission options for the 2020 911 Carrera S and 4S Coupe and Cabriolet models. The addition of a 7-speed manual transmission provides an alternative to the standard 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission.

Paired with a standard Sport Chrono Package, the 7-speed manual variant 911s will be equipped with Dynamic Drivetrain Mounts, PSM Sport Mode, a rev-match function and a steering wheel mode switch button.

As on the previous generation of the 911, the manual transmission versions come with a standard mechanical limited-slip differential including Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), replacing the fully variable, electronically controlled limited slip differential that is standard with PDK.

The 911 Carrera S with manual transmission can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h mph in around four seconds and reach a top track speed of over 305km/h. Curb weight for the manual Carrera S Coupe variant comes in at 1,495kg.
