    A car collector. Last of the air cooled and now collector cars. I like to drive so I’ll take the 991 — probably a 991.1TT in the next year or two.

    For how many sensors you have logging I wouldn't have guessed a 993 over a 991. I would love for you to go DCT as I doubt anyone else will do it to an M54.

    Actually understanding how the engine operates does not always correlate to having the newest engine hardware. An aircooled Porsche engine has a distinctive sound that a lot of people love (myself included )

    I have a traditional auto in my turbo Q50, and Im quite happy with it. I wouldnt hesitate to build a turbo auto.

    The Mercedes E63 AMG Biturbo AWD is a nice running auto turbo car. The 2018 is incredible but new and expensive.

    Yup! all the Bi-turbos are amazing cars. The McLaren MP4-12c is even better!

    The DCT in the f10 m5 and f06 m6 are pretty seamless as well.

    R35 GTRs are clunky, but at my old shop we built a couple 1,000+ whp, built motor and trans cars that were fabulous.

    Also, the EVO X MR with upgraded SST clutches and proper tuning is pretty damn good too. We have a 500whp, quick spooling 2.2L that was more fun to drive than any of the 100s of 5 speed GSRs we built.

    As for NA cars, the 991 GT3 an GT3rs are the best automatics I've experienced. Second comes the Ferrari 458.
