Shifter Paddles - Now Available for Porsche PDK Vehicles



We are proud to introduce the first of the Raceseng shifter paddle products to the Porsche PDK community. These paddles are designed to accentuate the OEM paddle form while enhancing the driver's connection to the car. Common problem on the Sport Design 2 steering wheel is the distance between the paddles and the steering wheel. Our shifter paddles extend the top and bottom of the paddle allowing for an improved ability to grab the gears no matter where your hands are on the wheel.





PROBLEM AND SOLUTION


We set out on a journey to design shifter paddles that enhanced the form and function of the OEM Porsche PDK paddles. Designed for cars that have factory paddle shifters such as the Turbo, GT3, Boxster, Cayman, Macan, Panamera, and Cayenne.






IN THE CAR

The Porsche PDK shifter paddles enhance the look of the Porsche interior and improve your driving experience.





FINISH

After machining, the shifter paddles go through multiple stages of finishing from vibratory tumbling, to media blasting by hand to our unique anodizing process. The final result is a gorgeous part with perfectly radiused edges and a satin anodized finish that feel incredible to the touch.





EXTENSIONS

The shifter paddle extends the OEM paddle where it matters most, where you grip the wheel.




HARMONY

We focused on designing a shifter paddle form that enhanced the Porsche PDK paddles while accentuating their natural shape. Our goal was to make paddles that look like they are a simple extension of the OEM paddle.




TEXTURE

The backside of the paddle features a unique machined texture. The goal was to create a cnc machined texture that would act as a subtle and unobtrusive grip.




DESIGN + DEVELOPMENT

In an effort to craft unique products, everything we do goes through a rigorous design and development process. Starting from sketch ideation to CAD modeling, our goal is to create authentic and well thought out products.




FITMENT

Will not fit the 2009-2015 PDK.




HOW DO THE PADDLES MOUNT?

The shifter paddles mount to the backside of the OEM paddles and are attached using double sided 3M VHB tape. The 3M tape we used is engineered exactly for this application and is laser cut for precise fitment. Once the tape is bonded, it is rigidly connected to the OEM paddles but the connection is not permanent, the paddles can be removed if need be.




WHY DOES THE MOUNTING TAPE WORK?

We precisely machine a pocket into the face of the shifter paddle which is identical to the shape on the back of the OEM paddle. This allows the double sided tape to form a uniform and rigid bond to both parts.




WHAT IS INCLUDED?

The kit comes with everything you need to mount the shifter paddles:

Shifter Paddles

Double Sided 3M VHB Tape

Alcohol Cleaning Pads

Adhesion Promoter
