Nothing like living out your dream of owning a Porsche 911 Turbo than sitting on your couch and playing Xbox. Fantec knows this; Peter knows this; the American people know this.

With that in mind, feast your eyes on the Porsche 911 Turbo S racing wheel for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. This little bugger costs a minimum of $250. I say “minimum” because Fantec produced three versions of the wheel, each more fancy than the last. The fanciest version, the Clubsport Edition, costs $400.

The wheel, which is totally wireless for the Xbox 360 (but requires a dongle for PS3/PC wirelessness, is that even a word?), has three force feedback motors, used to trick you in thinking you’re driving a real car.

The package even comes with two gear sticks—shift, baby, shift!

I don’t know, I thought racing wheels for consoles went out of style a few years ago. Color me surprised by this one, especially for that amount of money.
