In the 911, there is a point at which all forces come together. The steering wheel is the most important interface between the driver and the sports car. This is why all available steering wheels feature a high-grip steering wheel rim in smooth-finish leather and offer outstanding ergonomics. A full-size airbag is integrated as standard.
The sports steering wheel is fitted as standard and adjusts up to 40 mm for height and up to 60 mm for reach.
The optional multifunction steering wheel has four function buttons and two thumbwheels for convenient operation of audio, telephone and navigation functions, TFT display and on-board computer. On request, the steering wheel is available in smooth-finish leather, carbon or mahogany.
In conjunction with PDK, the steering wheels are equipped with two ergonomic gearshift switches enabling you to change gear directly from the steering wheel. With the optional Sport Chrono Package, the steering wheel also features a display above the airbag module to inform you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions have been activated.
As with the sports steering wheel, the optional SportDesign steering wheel is adjustable for both height and reach and, thanks to its grip mouldings, it’s in safe hands – even on the sportiest of drives.
In conjunction with PDK, the steering wheel features two gearshift paddles. These are made from a strong alloy and are ergonomically located behind the left- and right-hand steering wheel spokes. Pull the right-hand paddle and PDK shifts up. Pull the left-hand paddle and PDK shifts down. When PDK has been combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the left- and right-hand spokes additionally feature a display that tells you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions have been activated.
For increased comfort on cold days, steering wheel heating is available as an option for the sports steering wheel and multifunction steering wheels.
The heating is operated by a button on the rear of the lower steering wheel spoke.
