Fanatec Reveals New Flagship: Porsche 911 GT3 R Steering Wheel

Hardware 46 November 25, 2019 by

Fanatec has announced the latest addition to its Podium Series of high-end sim racing gear. Say hello to the Porsche 911 GT3 R Steering Wheel.

As the name implies, it’s a full-scale replica of the actual steering wheel found in the real 911 GT3 R, built to “automotive-grade quality” from brushed aluminium and leather using CAD data supplied directly by Porsche.

The wheel is compatible with both the Podium Series and Clubsport wheel bases (with the latter being $100 cheaper), so it can be used with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be released on December 16, 2020 and you can check regional pricing on Fanatec’s website. The full kit includes:

The “Button Module Endurance” is a new component which includes 12-way multi-position switches, rotary encoder functionality, toggle switches, an analog stick, a “FunkySwitch”, and 10 buttons. It also contains an integrated 2.7-inch 256×64 OLED display which is compatible with Fanatec’s Intelligent Telemetry mode (ITM).

If you’ve already got a compatible Fanatec wheel, you can purchase the button module separately. Again, check the product listing on your local Fanatec website for pricing; like the wheel, it will also be available on December 16. As always, using the affiliate links above helps support GTPlanet — thanks for your support!
