Default Great PDK Vs Manual Comparison (991.2)

I am still in break in so my review is soon to come . I enjoyed this presentation and thought some might as well . Just a personal note on PDK and manual is that I have always like both equally .

Here's the video I just watched . PS . Even the base car looks sweet !!

fritz and synergize like this.

Nick did a really nice job on that video. Really maps outs the highlights of the differences. I've been watching his videos since his last 911 and rather enjoy them.

As a side note I saw on Facebook that Porsche posted the new 991.2 GT3 PDK vs Manual and there are 1000s of comments debating the two. If you are up for a read some comments are quite insightful. Some are not.

Thanks for posting this!

I enjoyed it too . I don't have facebook , twitter or any social media but i do see he has a contact number . I thought about reaching out to him to see if he'd like to review my cars . His presentations are fantastic.

I subscribe to his channel on Youtube. He's such a pleasant fellow and does a great job on his videos. Amazing how much hate he gets in the comments section from time to time.

He's only an hour from me and when I'm in his area I always keep an eye out for him.

I think he'd enjoy your new GTS and your 997 I say reach out to him. Sent you a PM

As for PDK vs Manual.. For me... PDK for daily driver and best track times. Manual for weekend cruiser slash garage queen

I have chatted with him a bit when he was selling his M4. He is really a very down to earth fellow. I am sure he would be more than glad to review your car. Nick is really a big Porsche fan!
