STUTTGART: A seven-speed manual transmission can now be ordered for all 911 Carrera S and 4S models at no extra cost in European and related markets. It is an alternative to the standard eight-speed PDK transmission.

The manual transmission is combined with the Sport Chrono package and will therefore appeal to sporty drivers who derive more driving pleasure from changing gear themselves.

Also as part of the model year changeover, a host of new equipment options will now be offered for the 911 Carrera series that were previously not available for the sports car. These include

Porsche InnoDrive

, which is already familiar from the Panamera and Cayenne, as well as a new Smartlift function for the front axle.

The manual transmission with seven gears for the 911 Carrera S and 4S always comes in combination with the Sport Chrono package.

Also included is Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with variable drive torque distribution by controlled braking interventions on the rear wheels and a mechanical rear differential lock with asymmetrical locking action.

This overall setup will appeal to drivers with sporty ambitions, who will also appreciate the new tyre temperature indicator. This additional function in the Sport Chrono package was introduced with the 911 Turbo S.

The tyre temperature indicator is combined with the tyre pressure indicator. At a low tyre temperature, the blue bars warn about reduced road grip.

As the tyres warm up, the colour of the indicator changes to blue-white and then changes to white once the operating temperature has been reached and maximum possible grip is available. The system is deactivated and the bars are hidden when the winter tyres are fitted.

In combination with the manual transmission, the Sport Chrono package also offers an automatic rev-match function. When the driver shifts down, this function automatically opens the throttle momentarily to increase the engine speed and adapt it to the higher gearbox speed in the lower gear for smooth downshifts, thereby preventing load change effects.

The package also includes other sporty ingredients such as dynamic engine mounts, PSM Sport mode, the mode switch on the steering wheel with the modes Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, Wet and Individual (for an individual setup), as well as a stop watch and the Porsche Track Precision App.
