never seen that one before. some kind of generic wheel? The horn button looks like someone stuck a Porsche sticker on it.

That is a very common steering wheel to put on 930's in the early/mid 80's.. my brother in law has one on his 79 930 and a buddy have the same on his,... it's a nice wheel/

Thanks guys, I guess your eyes are better than my old ones. I was hoping it was a nice embossed horn button. I'm just looking for a nice aftermarket one for my 87'. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Geoff

It is a Personal Fittipaldi - after Emerson Fittipaldi. That is an image of his helmet on the bottom spoke. It came out in the early 80's around the time of the MOMO Corsa. Here is a link to the current version

You can probably find one like the pictured above on ebay or you may want to get a MOMO or OMP version.

Thanks 57 300sl. I went to the site and there it was...sans the helmet logo, though. You were right, too, 930 zip. Thanks again.

Here is a early Fittipaldi that differs as the detail is enameled and has the personal horn button. They changed into a less detailed wheel over the years. Excellent grip/ use of quality leather and detailed stiching on the early (late 70s/early 80s ) ones. As noted they come up once in awhile on Ebay and are a nice "vintage mod " wheel. I always reinstall the stock wheel if/when I sell my 930 .

That is a Fittipaldi- I got one with brown, tainted leather.
Nice wheel when it is in good condition like yours.

I remember when those wheels came out around '81.
They were the first or among the first wheels to have thumb slots at 9 and 3 o-clock.

The small porsche emblem in that vintage horn button could be popped out from the backside after taking the button apart and another car make emblem could be purchased and you just pressed it in to change it.
