    "Note: While the Podium Hub is fully supported by our CSL and ClubSport wheel bases, the Podium Button Module Endurance is currently only compatible with the Podium Series direct drive systems. Compatibility to the ClubSport Wheel Base V2.5 will follow in a future firmware update, with the display operating in Legacy Mode."

    Very pricey but looks to be very well made, and great to see they're making leather versions for those that don't like suede/alcantara :tup:

    Hm, but its the steering wheel of the "old" model 991, not the 2019 991-2, thats a pitty. Still nice if youre a Porsche fan and got the money...

    I can afford a dozen of them and while I disagree garbage as I’m sure it’s fantastic (in leather) I will say it’s damn ugly.
    Too many contrasting colors for my old eyes. Is this what you young guys like nowadays?

    So a guy with old eyes call it garbage. I can live with that:) Now makes everything sense;)

    Unfortunately, it seems so. But I'd argue for an exemption here, because I think the contrasting colors are an example of function before form in this instance. The fact that most of the buttons are different colors means you can more easily remember which does what - blue does X, yellow does Y, and so on.

    I did not call it garbage. I’m sure it functions great, the aesthetics are less than desirable.
    I guess I could use my VR more and not have to look at it.

    Honestly as a thrustmaster t300 user.

    I feel jealous of Fanatec users!!.

    Next time I might go fanatec perhaps. Honestly thrustmaster release some new add ons.

    It's based on the actual 911GT3 R wheel. I think it's the 2017 or '18 version.

    If only this and other wheels were available without the universal hub. Just makes them too expensive IMO.

    Dork? Who says that and knock off the internet insults.
    You could replicate an actual Pontiac Aztek and it would be actually ugly.
    Again, I don’t like the color scheme it’s merely my opinion. If they offered it in all black I’d buy one.

    How about gifting one of the dozen ;) ?

    In all seriousness - rim looks awesome but constant wacking in the face while changing rims (Don't know if it is just me. Because of changing using only one hand) kinda stops me expanding my collection. I'm waiting for the Podium pedals.
