Introduction


I would like to thank Fanatec/Endor AG for supplying the review sample.

Fanatec is a brand name owned by Endor AG. The company has the subtitle "The Brainfactory". It was founded in 1998 and specializes in input devices for consoles like the Playstation and the PC. They recently announced a Prosche 911 Turbo wheel, which is an exact replica of the car's steering wheel. It has taken some time for it to reach retail, but Fanatec wanted to make sure that the look and feel of the steering wheel to be perfect. We are fortunate enough to be one of the few to get to review the unit for you guys.
