porsche steering wheel

So you don’t have enough money to drive a brand new Porsche, but why not own a little bit of the experience with the Porsche 911 Turbo S steering wheel controller? This gaming peripheral is a fully licensed, to-spec reproduction of the real thing found in those lovely new 911s. It features force feedback technology and works with both PCs and PS3s, although it is strange to see the exclusion of the Xbox 360 platform that is more similar to the PC than the PS3 will ever be. Other goodies include sequential-action gear stick and wireless pedals, a declining-resistance clutch and pressure-sensitive brake. You can pick up the Porsche 911 Turbo S steering wheel controller later this year for $350. More specifications are available after the jump.
