UGH! Porsche! WHY!?
Do you want to know why manual drivers get mad when automatic drivers get their way? Because most people drive automatics, so manufacturers are going to make more of them. Now this is fine if the result isn’t a phase out of the manual transmission, but that is exactly what is happening.
Case in point, Porsche. After announcing that their top level GT3 will now only be available inPDK (fancy Porsche automatic transmission), they’ve now also announced that the 911 Turbowill also be automatic only.
This is just infuriating! Just because it makes financial sense, doesn’t mean that you should do it Porsche! I don’t want to brag about how fast my car changes gear for me! I want to be the reason why I’m fast.
