Since you seem to be into generalizing and stereotyping, how do you feel about people who feel compelled to gratuitously insult a non-trivial number of fellow marque enthusiasts whom they've never met?

To me, that's about as rude as criticizing people who don't know when to use "a" or "an" in a sentence

I had no idea of the big following of the Tiptronic until I started PCA autocrossing, more than half the cars there were tips. One couple owns four Porsches, not one is a manual. Porsche is smart, there are people who want a Porsche but aren't set on all that shifting with a clutch. It's not my cup of tea, but tiptronics are nowhere near like having a Sportomatic in terms of drive-ability.

Yes, Tiptronic is awesome and makes driving very relaxing, yet rewarding at the same time.
Cough...manual please.

Will be interesting to see what happens to the Tip market going forward, as fewer and fewer drivers know how to drive manuals.

Maybe none of them are in the Porsche demographic anyway.

And for wgwollet, Porsche made plenty of automatics before 1990. They just put them into 928s.

^^ If you look at some of what the younger guys/kids are driving (WRXs, EVOs, etc) they also love manuals. The overall numbers may be smaller but they will move up to 911s and M3s in time and they’ll want three pedals.

Singer is gonna make the 964 tip a collector’s item. They are buying them all and converting them as part of the build out.

I love my Tip. Out of our stable of Porsches, the others 5 and 6 speeds, early and later cars, the 993 Tip cabriolet is the most enjoyable. It is at the other end of the spectrum from the bare bones lightweight, which has no creature comforts, just purpose built raw power. I too, am hoping that the Tip market will someday appreciate. Maybe after everything air cooled manual has gotten so expensive, they will be the only affordable 993s left. I remember, not to long ago, when no one wanted the short wheel base, or mid year cars. Even the 964 was considered kind of a lost, in between car, especially with the problems the first ones had. Point is, this market is always changing. I’m holding on to my Tip.

The tips are great in Los Angeles traffic. Wife won't drive a stick. I've put a lot more miles on my c2 tip than my c2s stick.

In 20-30 years from now, I am guessing these future Pcar buyers (who are in elementary schools now) may prefer PDK over stick. Maybe these future auto enthusiasts may not know how to heal/toe or rev match properly--if they even drive at all.
