    Default Geneva: GT3 offers 6 speed manual and Alpine out skinnies Alpha 4C

    Aluminum trumps carbon in the "rest of the world", lightweight coupe category:

    It will interesting to see how many 6 speed manual GT-3's are sold.

    I think for the 911s, there was enough of a backlash and enough demand that six speeds will sell well enough to keep them in production.

    Even if they drop a bit in value short term they will do just fine in the long run. Assuming it appreciates like any other low production count 911.
