Most models were only available with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The M6 models were available with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (called “M-DCT”), and a 6-speed manual transmission in the United States.
The available transmissions are:
8-speed ZF 8HP45Z automatic (640i)
8-speed ZF 8HP70Z automatic (640d / 650i)
7-speed Getrag GS7-D36BG dual-clutch automatic (M6)
6-speed manual (650i / M6 models in US markets only)
The M6 version was produced in convertible (F12), coup? (F13) and four-door coup? (F06) body styles. It was launched in the coup? body style alongside the standard 6 Series Gran Coup? at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and at the Auto Mobil International Leipzig in convertible form.
It is powered by the S63 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8. In most countries, the only transmission offered was a Getrag 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (called “M-DCT”). In the United States, a 6-speed manual transmission was also available.
Compared to the standard car, the M6 features M-styling, merino leather upholstery, an M-specific head-up display, and a carbon fibre roof. ford wallpapers, lamborghini, tesla wallpapers, BMW 6 Series F12 wallpapers, mazda wallpapers
(Porsche Cayman)All 986 and 987 Boxsters use the M96, a water-cooled, horizontally opposed (“flat”), six-cylinder engine. It was Porsche’s first water-cooled non-front engine. In the Boxster, it is placed mid-engine, while in the 911, rear-engine. The flat, mid-engine layout provides a low center of gravity, near-perfect weight distribution, and neutral handling. The engines had a number of failures, resulting in cracked or slipped cylinder liners, which were resolved by a minor redesign and better control of the casting process in late 1999. A failure for these early engines was a spate of porous engine blocks, as the manufacturer had difficulty in the casting process. In addition to causing problems with coolant and oil systems mingling fluids, it also resulted in Porsche’s decision to repair faulty engines by boring out the cast sleeves on the cylinders where defects were noted in production and inserting new sleeves rather than scrapping the engine block. Normally, the cylinder walls are cast at the same time as the rest of the engine, this being the reason for adopting the casting technology.
The model received a minor facelift in 2002. The plastic rear window was replaced by a smaller glass window. The interior received a glove compartment, new electro-mechanical hood and trunk release mechanism (with an electronic emergency release in the fuse box panel) and an updated steering wheel. Porsche installed a reworked exhaust pipe and air intake. In addition, the front headlight’s amber indicators were replaced with clear indicators. The rear light cluster was also changed with translucent grey turn signals replacing the amber ones. The side marker lights on the front wings were changed as well from amber to clear, except on American market cars where they remained amber. The bumpers were also changed slightly for a more defined, chiseled appearance, and new wheel designs were made available.
