Like the article says, 80% of buyers are already going for the PDK, so at some point spending the money to develop a manual becomes a waste.

Avoids pre-G50 transmission cars like the plague

Want a Porsche with a transmission that requires skill? Try one with a 915 or 901 gearbox.
Exactly. A BMW forum criticizing the weight of the 991 vs 993 while their M3 weighs 800+lbs more than a E36 or earlier M3, meanwhile the 991 weighs the same as a 993 Porsche from 18yrs ago.

Name us a company that has reduced weight and added power.........it is basically nonexistent apart from Porsche.
