Do you know this steering wheel?

Although the ‘Start/Kill’ button in the centre might suggest otherwise, this wheel does not belong in the cockpit of a fighter jet, rather the cockpit of Porsche’s 919 Hybrid prototype racer…

Many buttons for the win

This interesting illustration, recently published by Porsche, explains what each of those countless buttons actually does, including the aforementioned ‘Kill’ switch (nope, not for eliminating competitors but merely cutting the engine). With road-legal performance-car steering wheels becoming more and more advanced, we wonder whether we might see ‘reduce traction control rear’ or an automated drink system filter their way into production Porsches of the future.
