    DCT or DSG (PDK for Porsche) behaves more like an MT and offers the same fuel efficiency. It also shifts quicker than an MT this offering better performance. However, a poorly designed DCT can lead to catastrophic failures like Fordís dry clutch DCT.

    The other manufacturer that uses boxer engines prefers their own version of the DSG. Porscheís PDK is one of the best in terms of performance.

    i vaguely remember a video yun pdk ng Porsche executed 50 full acceleration with launch control in succession without a hitch. yung bmw version smg pa ata overheated with 5 if i remember correctly. this was the earliest days of dct pa.
