A 190-mph shift never seemed so smooth

There is something glorious about Porsche and its PDK transmission. Its lightning-quick shifts almost defy the very laws of physics. The engineers at Porsche, who clearly don’t like being told, “No, you can’t have shifts that quick at that speed,” have pushed boundaries — as this insane sixth-to-seventh 190-mph shift shows.

If you’re listening, be sure to turn up the volume. The sound of the shift from sixth to seventh in this Porsche 911 GT3 is aurally appealing. At that speed, the transmission isn’t working on making an orchestra of exhaust notes to ricochet of a deserted canyon road — it is working to fight back wind resistance.
