Steering wheels

Where your journey takes you is in your hands. For this reason, the different steering wheels available for the Boxster models are mechanically adjustable and feature a high-grip rim in smooth-finish leather. Alcantara, a material developed for motorsport, is used in the Boxster GTS.

In combination with the optional fully electric seats, the steering wheel is also electrically adjustable, and for even more convenience, a memory function is included.

Sports steering wheel

The three-spoke sports steering wheel is fitted as standard in the Boxster and Boxster S. In conjunction with the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), it features two ergonomic switches.

With the Sport Chrono Package and PDK options, there is an additional display above the airbag module to tell you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions are activated.

The optional multifunction steering wheel provides extra comfort with the convenient operation of many audio, telephone and navigation functions.

SportDesign steering wheel

A twin-spoke design distinguishes the SportDesign steering wheel from the standard steering wheel. Available as an option for the Boxster and Boxster S and standard in the Boxster GTS. In conjunction with PDK, it features two alloy gearshift paddles ergonomically located behind the right and left steering wheel spokes.

When combined with the Sport Chrono Package and PDK, the steering wheel has an additional display in the left- and right-hand spokes to indicate whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS or Launch Control functions are activated.

Steering wheel heating

For extra comfort on those chilly days, a heating function is available as an option for the sports steering wheel and the multifunction steering wheel. Cold weather should never be a reason to prevent you from enjoying your open-top driving experience.
