New Ford-Developed Camaro ZL1 10-Speed Faster than Porsche PDK

While the Porsche PDK transmission has been the benchmark by which all other performance transmissions have been measured for quite some time now, there may be a new challenger looking to take the top spot.

Chevy’s new 10-speed automatic transmission officially shifts faster than the PDK system from Porsche.

Based on Chevy’s testing, their new 10-speed gearbox shifts from 1st to 2nd gear 36 percent faster than the same shift in a Porsche PDK gearbox. Similar numbers are reported for the shifts from 2nd to 3rd (27 percent) and 3rd to 4th (26 percent).

The transmission has been co-developed with Ford and will make its debut in the 2017 Camaro ZL1.
