2010 Porsche Boxster 987

PostPosted: Tue May 08, 2018 11:01 am    Post subject: SportDesign paddle shift wheel for 987 Gen 2 Reply with quote

I contacted my local OPC (Leicester) to order a SportDesign paddle shift wheel for my Boxster Gen 2. Bad news - I'm told these are no longer available as the company that manufactures them for Porsche has folded. Surprised

Anyone on here have further info? There is clearly a demand for these wheels and I can't imagine Porsche not wanting to plug this gap.

As per my original post - the company that makes the after-market SportDesign steering wheels for Porsche is out of business. So there are none available for any Porsche models. Even if there were, new prices for 991/Macan are about 20% more than 987 wheels. And, looking on a certain online auction site, the only paddle shift SportDesign wheel (991) would not be compatible with a 987.

Is your 987 a gen1 or gen2 . the 991 wheels like the one in the link above will fit you will need the newer round airbag but would need that whatever you did and depending on whethers its a gen1 or 2 you will need the newer steering control module basically its the same as many of us have done to our gen1 997
also remember the parts guys at the opcs are not used to modders and only go on vin numbers have you actually asked them for a 991 sport PDK wheel as the 991 part number superseccded the 997 and 987 part numbers as it was the same part Thumb

Hmmm ... that eBay wheel is certainly the right part number for the 987 Gen2. But the seller's asking price - even though the wheel is new - is more than OPC price with my 10% PCGB discount. The "brand new" price which he quotes is >£150 more than Porsche list on their Tequipment web page.

Most have cottoned on to the rarity of the wheel and are capitalizing price wise. However most havent yet cottoned on to the fact these wheels (like the panemara one above sitting at 250) are all the same.

Agreed they are all the same , stop worrying it wont fit Thumb Grin the panamera one above would be my choice as they havent a clue what they are selling purely calling it suede and not Alcantara tells me that lol. it looks tatty but royal or linas would sort that in leather or a mix of perforated and alcantar whatever you fancy.

Are those wheels really identical? They look the same certainly, but part numbers are totally different.

I foolishly enquired at my local OPC for them to fit a 991 wheel to my 997.2- they told me it was the wrong part and wouldn’t fit/work on a 997. I got home and fitted it myself the same day.

The part nos for 997.2 and 991 turbo are different but it’s the same wheel. Be good for someone more knowledgable to clarify but 99.9% sure that wheels exactly the same.

Decided to go for the new wheel on eBay spotted by Magic919 above, and managed to haggle the seller down a bit on his asking price. He's also local to me so I'm collecting in person tomorrow.

Indeed - airbag not required.

I was planning to fit the new wheel myself next week once I got hold of the necessary spline bit to remove the securing bolt. But I was at a TIPEC meet hosted by Dove House this morning, having just collected the wheel from the seller, and DH fitted it for me foc as part of their "free health check" clinic while I enjoyed coffee and croissants! Mechanic tea DH have been my go-to local indy for the past 6 years and I have to commend them once again for top quality service.

Paddle shift is just SO much better than the default button arrangement. Drive

Guys apologies for resurrecting an old thread but I have a couple of queries on changing a "button" wheel on a PDK 997 to paddles

If I go down the Techart route, how do the paddles actually attach to the existing wheel and what kind of wiring is required? Does anyone have these and what's the verdict?

If I were to swap the wheel for the Porsche Sport Design wheel, do I need anything else apart from the wheel? I have read on some other forums that a stalk control unit is required but I can't figure out what it's for and if it is only needed on a 997.1 or if it is needed on a 997.2

Apologies if this has been covered already but after lots of searching I can't seem to find definitive answers

Many thanks

re the gen2 steering control module you only need this if you are fitting either a sport or rocker gen2 wheel to a gen1 car this applied to autos not manuals.
Personally if you have already got a gen2 PDK with rockers I would fit the gen2 sport wheel with paddles , as per the old thread the part numbers for 987 997 are out of stock and have been superseded by 991 981 part numbers so ask for those are the parts guys are not the smartest cookies and will just tell you the item for your car is out of stock.
There are threads on here and other forums about fitting techart or any aftermarket paddles to a stock wheel look up threads that discuss fitting Mercedes paddles to these cars as thats basically the same thing and what guys did before techart offered them .
Personally I would stick with the oe sport wheel it will use your existing airbag. But pick up 2 new lower return springs about £1 each from the opc and some silicon grease to apply lightly around your airbag before refitting it. dont forget you can sell your rocker wheel its worth £150/200 to put toward the cost of the sport wheel Thumb
