I show several 911 Carrera. Not sure which one you have but the 911 Carrera, 911 Carrera 4S, and 911 Carrera S all have recalls on the manual transmission depending on the transmission you have. I have attached the Recall for you.
As for the way it is driving, I don't show anything at quick glance for what you describe. However, as you said, the car is still under warranty. The dealer must fix the car. He can not just keep giving it back. There is a lemon law which you can impose if he will not properly repair your car.
First I would defiantly check on the recall and ensure it did not affect your car and if so it was repaired. Next, I would insist they fix it or invoke the lemon law which would require an attorney.
You have paid a lot of money for the car. They should provide good service.
