That automatic doesn't count! It's basically a sequential!

Blasphemer!

Joking aside, Aren't the Porsche autos supposed to be amazing? Consider me envious, good sir!

There only were three dark blue cars with PDK for sale in the country.

I didn't like the manual gear box in the Cayman (at least in the first gen) that I drove, so I think this was a very wise choice.

PDK?
I was impressed with the PDK in the new 718 Boxsters I got to drive last month. I could live with it easily.

Very nice purchase. The PDK/DSG gearboxes from VW really are very good.

Congrats! Do they still have a clutch pedal to get going of is it all automated?

In reply to Wall-e:

It's all automated(presuming the Cayman is the same as the 911 GT3). It has a normal automatic-type shifter, then Sport-mode to give you full manual control.

Nope, just two pedals.

Very Ferrari-esque looking in that dark color-- seems to take away a lot of the busy-ness of the design. Congrats!

Nice! I was at the launch event in Boston when these came out and have been a fan ever since. Did this replace the silver one?

Beautiful Cayman. My 911 has a PDK and it's great. I especially enjoy the blips on downshifts.

Yes it did. That was the only way that I could make it happen.

Hell, I'm envious of your garage, let alone what's parked in it! Nice stuff there.
