Add in unique mechanics for each pedal and an authentic metal Porsche logo and it’s just like being on the road…gamers truly get the feeling they are playing with the real thing!

Lastly, to keep everything from moving all over the place, the Fanatec Porsche 911 Carrera Racing Wheel utilizes strong table clamps (with quick release), special non-slip rubber pads, and VELCRO strips on the pedals. The wheel is compatible with all PC games that support force feedback and a sequential gear stick and metal paddle shifters are optional as an accessory.
