On the first day of driving the Porsche 911 GTS with the PDK transmission -- an automated manual -- my left leg kept reaching for the clutch pedal, and my right hand would reach for the shifter.
It was my mindset and muscle memory that "all good Porsches have manual transmissions." By Day 2, I was liking the smoothness of the seven-speed gearbox -- with the tongue-twisting name of Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe. And by Day 3, I was engaged, flipping off manual shifts and grinning. 408 horsepower can be fun.
