Of course, you could let us take care of the gearshift strategy so that you can devote all your attention to your cornering strategy, with the optional 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) featuring both manual and automatic modes. PDK offers extremely fast gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power, improved acceleration over the manual transmission, very short response times, reduced fuel consumption and a distinct increase in comfort.

PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one, thus requiring two clutches. This doubleclutch transmission provides an alternating, non-positive connection between the two half gearboxes and the engine by means of two separate input shafts. The flow of power from the engine is transmitted through one half gearbox and one clutch at a time, while the next gear is preselected in the second half gearbox. Therefore, during a gear change, one clutch simply opens and the other closes simultaneously, enabling gear changes to take place within milliseconds.

With the SPORT button selected, the full advantages of PDK are brought into play: a more immediate response to throttle inputs, relatively short shift times and swift throttle-blip downshifts on overrun, such as when braking into a corner, and always accompanied by an emotive engine sound.

When combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package (standard in the Cayman GTS), the gearshifts of PDK are sportier, shift times shorter. Other gearshift strategies are also available – for uncompromising driving enjoyment.
