The current generation 911 has been with us now for two model years and the reviews have been generally positive. There have been some gripes about the lack of a manual transmission in the high performance version, the GT3. But with many 991s coming equipped with the PDK transmission, most critics and enthusiasts have begun to accept that these gearboxes are better for performance and fuel economy, if not outright fun. But if you want a bit of old school in your 991 series 911, how about a lightly used 4S such as this one for sale in North Carolina with the 7-speed manual and SportDesign package?

I’m typically not a fan of the murdered out look, but in this case, I like the menacing presence of this 911. My response to the new 911 has been rather lukewarm, like most new cars these days. I am still trying to come to terms with cars getting larger and heavier and in the process, seemingly losing the plot. But with the 7-speed manual and iconic ducktail spoiler, this is just enough to grab my attention and up the want factor.
