The 991 looks good but starting to look long.
I heard the 7MT is not quite as nice as the 6MT in shift quality. Given the purpose of this car, I see little reason to pursue a long overdrive for highway MPG, which is of course the point of the 7MT.

I'd say stick to the simple formula of offering a street legal race engine with a good ol' 6MT. It would be even better if they can stick it with an old fashioned hydraulic steering rack. In this day and age, we REALLY need a car like that.
