I’ve come to realize that as a recent 997.2 manual owner, that there is virtually nothing out there reviewing this car in manual form. Just about every search for a 997.2 manual comes up with a .2 PDK review or a .1 review. Even the one Autoweek manual review listed in this thread makes no mention of the manual, other than that it is still a Getrag unit which is not even correct. Other than that, the review only mentions PDK so one would be hard pressed to know for sure whether they even tested the manual here – The written review states PDK (quote: "There also is a new optional gearbox, the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch unit. Fitted to the car we drove, it replaces the Mercedes Benz-produced five-speed automatic on the old 911 Turbo") but the stat sheet states manual. In any case, it was not at all helpful in describing the manual's characteristics.

I previously had separate threads for .1 reviews, .2 reviews, etc.

But it became a bit of a pain to update the separate locations. So I've consolidated all the reviews into one thread (out of laziness). Please go to the following thread to find that consolidated list:

997 :: Professional Reviews

And as ever if you spot a professional review that should be added, please share the link in that post, and I'll update the consolidated list accordingly.

Thanks.

Karl.
