Sweeeet…

Here’s something to get your mind off politics: my favorite automaker, Porsche, has just introduced the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) (don’t you just love those German words?) double-clutch system that not only introduces increased performance, it also increases fuel economy.  I have been a Porsche fan since childhood.  Amazingly enough, once I was old enough to care about such things, I discovered that, while being one of the best sports cars on the market, the 911 can get upwards of 26-28 miles per gallon (and that’s before this new invention came out!).  Some of its competitors have a fuel economy in the single digits.  So, if Porsche has been doing it with the 911 for all these years, why can’t everyone else?
