^ Ferrari doesn't even offer a MT anymore. Not surprised if Porsche does in the future though, but they did spend all of the expense on developing the 7MT for the 991, so it seems they are committed committed

However, one could argue that they cater to two diff't arguments. Ferraris are more flashy and a status symbol, while a Porsche is owned by an enthusiast who appreciates the driving experience.

I remember reading somewhere on Ferrarichat that a lot of people who track their Ferraris trailer it up to the track, drive it, and then trailer it home, while a good amount of Porsche owners can drive it there, thrash the **** of the car, and then drive it home without skipping a beat.
