Wings Engineering 3rd Foot

Years ago a company called Wings Engineering offered an aluminum pedal that fit over the gas pedal of any 911, it really helped with heel/toe downshifts. Does anyone know of a similar pedal available for Boxsters?

For UK users there are various alu pedal sets available on Design911. I have the full set on mine and as you say it does help me with heel and toe.

Like the idea of the Rennline solution. What i don't like is that i have to drill holes in my gas pedal, so the Rennline pedal can't be removed without having these holes: http://www.rennline.com/PDF/PA71.pdf

Is there something similar that can be clamped on the gas pedal?

Regards, Markus

Al the aftermarket ones I've seen are drilled. With VWs you used to be able to PPP the covers off and swap them as the TT style alu pedal was a popular change. Those were just cosmetic like for like replacements though. Ive got this for RHD

I would just crack on and drill it. If you want to revert to back to standard just get a new pedal ...

Here you go!



Joking aside, all of the Boxster specific ones that I've seen are drilled/bolted. However, there are a number of generic pedal cover sets that clamp on....

Not the most elegant/stylish, but it gets the job done for a fraction of the price

These are on my other hobby car, and I really like both their appearance as well as their function.

Yep, Rennline makes great ones, which we also have here: Porsche Boxster (1997-2004) - Pedal System - Page 3.

They typically make these heel/toe kits for a lot of different makes. Great quality and craftsmanship.
