Sport Design Steering Wheel on Gen 2 Cayman

Hello folks,


Just wanted to know if anyone has retro-fitted a SD steering wheel to their Gen Cayman/Boxster 2009-11. I had one on my Black Edition so I know it's possible on a Gen 2 but my research so far tells that it only fits 987 Cayman/Boxsters 2011-12 and the 981(987 Black Edition was 2011).

The part number is 991 347 803 35 A34

Seen this but doesn't give specifics on what Caymans it fits: https://www.design911.co.uk/mobile/#part;id=126212

I'd lose the steering wheel multi-function capability but not too bothered by that.

Thanks


Funny you should post this for the past week I've been researching exactly the same thing, I have searched everywhere and unfortunately there are none for sale second hand so it would have to be new.

My local OPC quoted £1700 plus fitting for a non PDK Sports Design wheel including a new air bag as mine is the older triangular type so can't be used, its a lot of money for a steering wheel but I hate the one on my car so I'am really tempted to order one up, its a really nice wheel and will lift the look of the inside.

I've read somewhere that a additional stalk can be retro fitted to get back the controls of the multi function wheel.


i ve fitted quite a few to 2008-2010 911's so can't see that a Cayman should be any different,
I assume you have a round air bag car?

Because the sport design steering wheel became on option in 2010 thats why all porsche part info is for 2011 model year cars,
very few secondhand, i don't bother looking and just buy a new one at circa £650 with a bit of discount

Thanks. That sounds promising. Yes I have the circular airbag. Did you fit one to a car with multi-function buttons? I've read you can get a stork to keep that, I'm not that bothered if I lose it but just wondered.

I think the multi function stalk only applies to 991 / 981 and is a mistake on the Porsche equipment website
i ve never seen a multi function stalk on a 987/ 997

i got my SD wheel from suncoast in US. i was fortunate that my sister was on holiday in US so brought it back for me. it was about £650 then sent it to Royal Steering Wheels to have it recovered in the 9002 grey/black alcantara (as used by Porsche) with a red alcantara top band and red stitching £140
my car was a 2010 gen 2 boxster with a round air bag so i just fitted it myself

True, I've driven a few 987s and not seen one either. Thanks

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know. Strange that the part numbers are different on the Suncoast website. I've come across Royal Steering Wheels and would consider doing the same.

i recovered the lower sections of the dash in red alcantara. i also bought another set of 3lower dash sections to cover in the 9002 grey alcantara as they do on the GTS (just so i could chose) but after stripping the leather off the pannels i then sold the car so never finished those parts.
will have to sell off those 3 dash sections ad those would be nice in the grey alcantara

So I've got hold of second hand one for a reasonable price. Did yours have the multi-function buttons? Just wondering if there's anything I need to do when I switch it over in terms of the buttons. If any fault codes, etc come up.

the one i had was a standard wheel with no buttons and no paddles so a stright swap over

Picked up one second hand for a reasonable price. Did you ever fit one to a car that had multi-function buttons on it? Was there anything different about it? In case any dash lights, etc come up.

Just to round this topic off, fitted the Sport Design Steering today with no issues. Feels much better than the standard one, it's thinner and very slightly smaller (as far as I can tell).

Steering Wheel - Sport Design (Paddle) in Alcantara

Three-spoke sport steering wheel in Sport Design.  For cars with PDK transmission, it comes with paddle shifters allows you to make motorsport-style gear changes. Comes factory covered in Alcantara. The paddles are made from a strong alloy and are ergonomically located behind the right and left steering-wheel spokes. Pull the paddle on the right and the PDK shifts up. Pull the paddle on the left and the PDK shifts down.  For cars with a manual transmission, paddles won't be included.  Select your year and model.

Visually, the steering wheel is distinguished by its distinctive high-quality twin-spoke design and silver-colored galvanized spoke cover. Another feature reminiscent of the world of motorsport is the top center marking on the steering-wheel rim.

Comes with the steering wheel only, you must reuse your stock airbag. Professional installation recommended. Limited Availability.

Fits the following models (997.2 & 987.2 generation):

  • Carrera models - 2009-2012
  • Cayman models - 2009-2012
  • Boxster models - 2009-2012
  • Turbo models - 2010-2012
  • NOTE: Sport Chrono Plus indicator lights can only be activated for 2010-2012 models with Sport Chrono Plus & PDK (dealer activation required for this feature). Comes with the latest version available.

    PDK Steering Wheel for 2009 Carrera 4S

    ★★★★★

    Rick(Princetown, New York) | October 6th, 2021

    Extremely pleased with the results. No more accidental shifts from the original PDK button wheel. I regret not doing this earlier. My only wish would be for a red center strip, but I’ll try the 1/2” red gaffers tape mod for now. Installation was very easy. I recommend watching a couple of different installation videos before starting and make sure you have a T55 socket. The two plastic ABS connectors on the back of the airbag have a center tab that must be lifted before they can be removed. This was not shown well in one of the videos I saw. After disconnecting the battery, it can be done in 10 minutes or less. Enjoy!!!

    Perfect Upgrade

    ★★★★★

    chmikeusa(Santa Barbara CA) | March 24th, 2021

    The Alcantara steering wheel with paddle shifts is a great upgrade. Great quality, - great feel. Had it installed at an independent Porsche Specialist. It was plug and play since the original steering wheel was not a multi-function steering wheel either. My other cars have paddle shifters as well, and I could just not get used to the push/pull shifters on the stock steering wheel, although they worked perfectly.

    PDK steering wheel upgrade for 2009 Cayman S.

    ★★★★★

    Andy T(Bolingbrook, IL) | January 18th, 2020

    The steering wheel with Alcantara finish is a step up from the factory one. Most importantly, the left (downshift) and right (upshift) paddles as in a GT3, are an excellent substitute to the horrible thumb dual actuated paddles from factory. I cannot even imagine not having this steering wheel anymore. I have been driving with it for about 1 year and I love it.

    Fantastic upgrade

    ★★★★★

    Boz(St Louis, Missouri) | April 30th, 2016

    This wheel is a fantastic upgrade to my 2009 Boxster PDK. The install took approximately 30 minutes (including 20 minutes to let the battery stand disconnected). Remove airbag, disconnect 5 connections, remove nut, and reverse process with new wheel. Beautiful wheel and shifts the way a Porsche should!

    OPC is cheaper than design 911, don't forget to ask for the 911uk discount which is 10% but try to push for 12.5%

    £764 incl of VAT from OPC for a manual wheel
    £894 incl of VAT from OPC for a PDK wheel

    Neither include the airbag (need a circular type).

    I guess its down to individual negotiations at the local OPC.

    I already get an OPC discount with supercar drivers, But having seen design911 prices of the wheels - they do seem to work out abit cheaper.

    Guessing D911 just get trade prices then add their own premium .

    Cheers Phil, FFS! Part number monkeys, how difficult can it be. Thanks for the advice I'll give them a call back now and let you know how I get on. I decided to keep it more original with black leather rather than going down the alcantara route.

    Phil this is on my list, the horrific multi function has to go, I notice you have the alcantara version, I obviously have the much preferred and more sought after PDK version m8 Grin
    What's your thoughts on the look of alcantara without any other alcantara in the cabin I just can't decide between that or leather QuestionDont know[/quote



    Hi Mate, the alcantara feels lovely but they dont seem to do a heated version from what I could find I might be wrong and just missed it.

    How it would look in the car with no other alcantara apart from the head lining. I am not sure , it certainly wouldnt look horrible but probably not as good as if you had say the armrest in alcantara , I realise you cant do the gear shift and gator , but you could do the handbreak and arm rest.

    I as always got totally carried away and have OE alcantara armrest, handbreak rear section and gearknob and gator , and finished off with retrimmed lower dash and glove box. and keep now looking at the door panels deciding what to do Grin but thats just me .

    If your interior is black leather I think just the wheel in alcantara would work if its any other colour you would need to introduce some other bits.
    hope that helps mate Thumb

    Hmmm. This could get tricky, as I thought Porsche were supposed to be able to guarantee parts availability for years.

    This stuff does happen, as I have been trying to order a new sports seat by Recaro for the other car. It should come with an airbag, but Recaro had problems with the supplier. It also went out of business. They need to find a new supplier, and retest all the seats. As such there is no delivery time on a new seat. It's been a year or so already... I may have to run 'bag less, run a different seat, and "simply" swap seats for the annual inspection (as the inspectors need to see the cars with the original number of airbags).

    After my retrofit BMW sport wheel fitment (although I finished up butchering the old wheel with a screwdriver after I couldn't get the clips undone) I'm buzzing like Ed China, however presumably it would need coding by Porsche? Car still under OPC warranty?
