Back in November, Fanatec revealed its new Porsche 911 GT3 R Steering Wheel for both the Podium Series and ClubSport Wheel Bases.

The new Fanatec wheel revealed the included Podium Button Module Endurance, which is a full-scale replica of the Porsche 911 GT3 R wheel-plate. The unit is designed to be used on both the Podium Hub and ClubSport Fanatec Universal Hub for Xbox One.

The GT3-class endurance button module features 10 buttons, two 2-way toggle switches, a 2-axis analog stick, 7-way FunkySwitch, and two 12-position switches which can also be configured as endless rotary encoders. Furthermore, the button module is also fitted with a rectangular OLED display which can show you detailed wheel information and many telemetry data types.

The Fanatec Podium Button Module Endurance is currently up for Pre-Order at a price of €199.95 (incl. VAT) + Shipping. The first units will become available on January 26, 2020.
