Porsche short shift pictures

Recommended Posts

A new local C4S owner bought it from out local dealer and I went down to take pictures. $544 as they matched the price of another dealer.

The flat part of the shift lever is machined a little bit differently, but otherwise it is identical to the B&M. Well, except for the color, Porsche logo and part number.

He wants to put it in on Saturday. Anyone in the San Jose area interest in a work on cars day, let me know. He also has a bunch of other stuff to do. Jeff

aloha jeff-

did you see in the press release for the 550 special edition boxster s, they claimed that porsche technicians engineered the 15% shift throw reduction?

Someone is paying attention and I was waiting for this question. While I was at my local dealer in San Jose to take pictures of Armand's shift that just came in I spoke to Bob Stewart in sales.

The three TSBs just released for all Porsche sport cars (have not seen a GT3 TSB) say 37%. As an option Porsche says 35%. The 550 James Dean special says 15%. The new short shift kit sold by Porsche is the same for all cars (except Cayenne and GT3).

I teased Bob about the 2% difference. Then he gave me the 986330 Special Model order guide and press release - 15% - just like we have all seen on the internet.

Marketing does not talk to engineering? A special 15% reduction kit just for the Boxster 550 special? Will not know until I get my hands on the cars with the factory option and expose the shift. Jeff

What is the part number for the short shift ? Do you know if it is available here in Europe?

000 044 700 26 Retrofit kit, shortening of shift travel including mounting elements.

It shows in the latest (October 2003) RoW parts list.

My advice... buy the B&M Short Shifter. Same shifter - 1/3 the price.

always paying attention, you know that, jeff :)

interesting to see both a 2% and a 20% difference in the claimed shift throw reduction

perhaps it was a proofreading or ad agency error

also interesting is the claim that porsche engineered this solution when it looks like they just licensed/copied it

It is available in Euorope from Gert at : Carnewal, the link for the shifter itself is at : Carnewal short shift.

Total price is €395 + VAT if you are not VAT registered.

Personally I ordered the Porsche part from Gert as the UK dealers are so far up their own :censored: that putting anything other than a Porsche part in your vehicle gives them too much wriggle room on warranty claims, IMHO!
