Porsche has a big news for their loyal customers ad they confirmed that 2020 911 will be available with seven-speed manual transmission. The gearbox will come with no-cost option, but is available on handful of models which are 911 Carrera S, 4S Coupe and Cabriolet. It needs to be seen if the manual transmission is offered on entry-level 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera. Nonetheless, buyers would get an alternative option of eight-speed PDK transmission. But buyers would have to compensate with the performance as Porsche stated that manual 911 Carrera S will take around four seconds to hit 60 mph.
