Porsche 911 (996) Short Shifters
Eliminating harsh angles that the Porsche 911 (996) shifter is forced to go through during the course of shifting between gears can allow a driver to make smoother, more rapid gear shifts. Racers and serious performance drivers tend to prefer the quickness and reliability provided by Porsche 911 (996) short shifters, as even split seconds spent on nonessential maneuvers can make the difference between a winning race and a losing one. Effective Porsche 911 (996) short shifters still activate each gear in its entirety when shifting, but transition between gears more rapidly than expected from stock Porsche 911 (996) shifts, making this a popular, and useful, upgrade.
