The most welcome change for 1987 911 was a new five-speed transaxle with cone synchronizers, and not the familiar Porsche ring-type. More positive shifting was again claimed, but this time, testers agreed, the G50 gearbox was a sucess. Road & Track declared that the "new 911 gearbox shifts smoothly, has a well-defined gate and exhibits little of the old tranny's balkiness when cold...Because the brake is part of the same pedal cluster as the redesigned clutch, its position is improved and it's now possible to heel and toe the 911 without contorting your right foot or resorting to wearing snowshoes." Also encouraging, was the extra power given to 1987 Porsche Carreras. Thanks mainly to recalibrated DME electronics, horsepower increased by 14, to 214 (SAE net) at 5,900 rpm, and torque by 10 pound-feet to 195 (still at 4,800 rpm). A separate thermostatic electric fan was added for the secondary oil cooler in the right front fender, and the clutch was upgraded from mechanical to hydraulic operation, which made stop-and-go driving less tiresome and less tiring.
