The 997.2 Turbo's Notoriety: Its model year denotes the very last of the 6-speed manual-equipped 911 Turbo with the following model year signaling the end of the manual-operated 911 Turbo. The 991 Turbo's transmission offering was only limited to PDK and the upcoming 992 Turbo will 99.9% follow this formula as well. Not only are its successors lacking a manual transmission, but the 991s and 992 911s lack the preferable sizing that this example offers as it's really the last of the svelte-shaped and "right-sized" Turbos that are inline to the original 911 Turbo's (930) design philosophy. The Significance Of Its $8,840 Optioned PCCBs: Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) is an option that isn't too frequently seen on the non-Turbo S 911. Some of the added benefits of having PCCBs include a braking system that's much lighter than the standard steel setup, which in turn aids in a heighten handling and ride quality experience; shorter stopping distances that are even more impressive at higher speeds; and little to no brake dust!
