Podium Steering Wheel Porsche 911 GT3 R
Hello my dear friends I have so many emails from all my readers asking about these two beauties, the doubts are mostly about performance, quality, and their differences. I’m gonna answer these questions and so much more because of course, I’m here to help you and clarify everything. Let’s get started.
Born to win, with that phrase Fanatec had my attention instantly; this wheel is pure luxury with real high performance, the most exciting about it is that this steering wheel is an exact replica of the real Porsche and based on original CAD data (Computer-Aided Design) which provides valuable IT information this is a system that includes information about the quality data and transfer, information about changes and software packages.
The Porsche 911 GT13 has a brushed and anodised aluminium rim covered in genuine, premium suede leather, 10 buttons, two 2-way toggle switches, a 2-axis analogue stick, 7-way FunkySwitch, and two 12-position switches which can also be configured as endless rotary encoders, yes I’m talking about the real OG in your fingertips.
I know to this point you’re asking ¿what’s the frickin difference? Let me tell you my friend, there’s no difference, yes you read it right, the same price, characteristics, performance and also the same quality in two different steering
wheel materials, suede and leather, so, in conclusion, everything ends at this point: your preference, ¿are you a leather person or more a suede one? I´m gonna go with leather.

It all comes to your choice and preference, Suede vs Leather
Yes suede is softer and more casual, but less durable, more susceptible to damage, requires maintenance and some special treats, that’s a big no-no for me, in the other side leather looks formal has almost no maintenance and the durability is amazing, I mean leather items with daily use can last a lot of time (this has been tested and proven).
The same price ( + shipping) and two materials in the same amazing luxury steering wheel (remember? Is a full-scale replica of the Porsche 991 GT3 R wheel), if you’re choosing suede I highly recommend using gloves due to the nature of suede leather. YES is expensive but is completely worth it, you will have a luxury high-performance equipment, perfect if you´re a speed and Porsche lover or just want the ultimate wheel for GT racing.
Podium series is growing fast since it launching by Fanatec last year, Many products came out from the german laboratories, All kinds of rings are available for purchase like the Ring Porsche, Nascar among others.
Today we think the Podium Racing Wheel F1 would be ok for Related Products, They are both compatible with PC and PS4. and you can for sure use the Steering Wheel with your Podium F1 Base.
