Porsche Can (and Probably Will) Make Two-Paddle PDK Steering Wheel Optional on All Sports Cars

Porsche has told us that the two-paddle steering wheel—with proper pull-right-to-upshift, left-to-downshift layout—that will be optional on PDK-equipped 2010 911 Turbos will also fit the rest of the company’s sports-car lineup. That means future Boxster, Cayman, 911, and even Panamera buyers may be able to special-order the more logical setup in place of the two-way-button wheels that haven’t been very well received (by us, for instance). At the very least, Porsche owners can now rest easy knowing the wheel will work, so don’t be surprised if it’s back-ordered immediately after it hits the parts counter’s order book.

For what it’s worth, company officials still contend that the push/pull button arrangement is preferred by Porsche engineers, but we suspect that has something to do with the fact that they’ve been driving development mules equipped that way for many years now. Those of us who don’t drive Porsches all day will tell you that the buttons take some getting used to, so we’d rather paddle our Doppelkupplungsgetriebe, thank you.
