    That's not true.

    People have been telling me the base model will come with a manual for weeks now.

    this is the new age of performace and although it might not be as enjoyable to drive as a true manual it is much more efficient and produces faster shifts, .2 sec in R mode

    Clutch is to manual as torque converter is to automatic. No torque converter, not an automatic.

    New age of performance?

    Autotransmissions have been around for a while.

    PDK (Porsche Doplekupplung) has been around for a long as time too.

    This fucking sucks. I don't want to drive like and old man; I want to row my gears.

    Now I've driven a GTi with the twin clutch set up and it was pretty fast and fun.....but sometimes you just want to row your own. :hs:

    Yeah, tell that to the guy who pays 80k and is still driving with one foot.

    You're using a technicality to live in denial.

    The funny thing is that people will debate endlessly over the merits, or lack thereof, of a car that they will never in their life own.

    So I ask you. Who gives a shit if the GT-R has a six speed manual, auto paddle shift or three on a three tranny?

    I give a shit.

    I want the car to fail miserably.

    Porsche is the king of the hill and always will be.

    Turbo V6 AWD w/autotrans? It's called the GMC Typhoon

    V6 TT AWD AWS 3700lbs? It's called 3000GT VR-4

    These were failures, and people need to see that this will fail too.
