Fanatec Porsche 911 GT2 – SRT Video Review

Following their first-look video that was relased back in December, Darin & Shaun & Jessica have released a full video review of Fanatec’s brand new Porsche 911 GT2 wheel.

The 911 GT2 combines the trademark Alcantara leather rim of Fanatec’s GT3 RS wheel with the unrivaled cross-compatability of the Turbo S as the new GT2 also works on the PC, the Playstation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360. The 911 GT2 sells for 249 Euros/Dollars or 499 Euros/Dollars in combination with Fanatec’s aluminum Clubsport pedals.

    Avoid Fanatec at all costs

    uhmm let me think… the T500 RS which is becoming available worldwide or the Fanatec Porsche available only in selected countries? Guess Fanatec isn’t my cup of tea!

  • terminator

    Jose? Jessica please portuguese is not spanish you pronouced it completely wrong lol!

  • simfan

    thx for the review

  • V$TMcLaren

    great show from SRT!!!, but before i make a decision, I want to hear SRT about the T500RS!

  • The Biff

    Infomercial.  They haven’t made a non biased review in a long, long time.  :-$

  • F1Racer

    Hmm Im enjoying my GT3RS more than I ever did my G25.  So I guess its all about opinion and the experiencce you’ve had that gives you your bias.

  • Trevor

    Just wait until you have to deal with the customer service lol

  • Guinnness

    +1, i was loving my GT3RS until it began to have transmission problems (nothing realy serious, just a used belt with too much slack) and then the nightmare started facing their non existant customer service.

    Their products are really great, when they are working at least, but not having any serious customer support is just unacceptable for 300$ ++ things

    Personaly i will never buy anything from them anymore.

    You obviously haven’t tried the GT2…
    I got mine from the early batches in december and I totally share Shaun and Darin enthousiasm. It really is a dream to drive with that wheel, and they also are right when they say the clubsport package is the best out there for the money.
    About all those support whiners, they didn’t understand Fanatec’s business model. Fanatec is selling directly to the customers and they are a small company.
    2 consequences to that :
    – the prices are much lower (the GT2 at 250$ would cost at least 400$ in retail stores)
    – the customer service is a victim of their success, but they’re learning (fast). I, for one, have had a defective Porsche 911 Turbo S wheel. A little phone call to Fanatec followed by a little email and a week later I received a brand new replacement wheel. Try that with Logitech and the G27 !!!

  • Silly(c)One

    Have you made a video of your problem and mailed it to them, followed by a phone call to their support line in Germany ?
    I’ve had the best experience with their customer support… I’ll buy everything that comes from Fanatec from now on 😉

  • Ricoo

    I had my faulty 2 years old G25 replaced very easily after just few emails…

  • terminator

    I don’t get it if the Fanatec wheels are so problematic if you are not ISR why not fix them before introducing new products? When you have a new production line it won’t make it reliable just because you sorted the problems in the previous product! Shipping to only selected countries pretty much sums it up why it’s not available worldwide! how would they fix a wheel inside it’s first month in New Zealand? South Africa? Argentina? China? It would mean end of business for them but having issues “only in US and EU” means only 2 places 😉
    When they ship it worldwide will mostly mean end of such a high failure rate!

  • F1Racer

    I have dealt with customer services, Trevor.   They were a pleasure to deal with and sorted out my problem within a day. 

  • Silly(c)One

    By your retailer I guess, not by Logitech ?
    You were lucky, as my G27 comes from MediaMarkt and forget about proper customer support over there…

  • Think Again

    Fanatec should switch from engineered in Germany/manufactured in China to both being done in Germany or comparable country with skilled workers. This would probably up the price quite a bit, but I will gladly pay more for a true quality product. Thus far, Fanatec`s reliability doesn`t match its “theoretical quality”. If the product works, it`s excellent. But many products seem to not work proper.
    I don`t think “gambling” should be part of a buyer`s decision.

    Just my 2 cents

    By logithec directly without even contacting my retailer (an online shop).
