We all should likely just be happy Porsche will deliver any GT2 at all. They said the car would not come, then that it would, then they debated some more, and finally Porsche decided to deliver the ultimate 911.
Perhaps we should just be happy the GT2 is coming back and not make a big deal over the lack of a manual option?
Porsche may do a special edition GT2 or GT2 RS variant with a manual transmission which of course will create a ton of hype and a fight for allocations among Porsche purists. That recipe worked for the 911 R.
Expect the highest performance 911 in the lineup (and of all time from Porsche) to be revealed later this year.
