This one looks like the standard 6-speed manual gearbox one. I cannot visually confirm any paddle shifters in this pic, so guessing it isnt the new 7-speed paddle shifter.

True,can't see the paddle shifters. Pic's a bit blurry, so its tough to make out most of the details.

Yes.They are.This one has the new PDK tranny,and those small not-so-ergonomically-good shifters on the wheel.

Thanks for the pic,AyAn. I was looking for a more defined shifter,as in most of the other cars these days.This one's incorporated into the wheel,and can't be picked up in a glance.

This is not a picture of 911 turbo, but it is of the 2009 cayman S.
These are so called gear selector buttons and not paddle shifts.
The paddle shifters which would be introduced, will have the paddles just like the ferraris and the others cars.

It could be a Cayman or a 911 turbo, but the shifters being newly introduced are the ones which AyAn has mentioned above. Those are the PDK or Porsche Double clutch (in English), which are claimed to be more swift and smooth than the regular paddle shifters available in other machines. For more details, refer to the link below:

It could be a 911 as well, coz they both have PDK shifters rather than the common paddle shifts.

I am sorry i didn't noticed it was written below the pic. My bad.

@ altohoncho, that is the cayman S, i know the car. The technology is double clutch, but PDK stands for Porsche Doppel kupplung

But this button shifters are a turn off, porsche should use the "paddles" as in ferraris.
