vdm vs banjo

#1 Post by Ned Gorski » Fri Apr 29, 2022 1:13 pm

Ok so I may have given a friend some bad advice. regarding vdm wheels. I know banjo wheels were the standard early on and eventually became an option. is it known what year/month Porsche start using the standard two spoke 400mm vdm pre a steering wheel ?

Thanks in advance regards Ned

Forgive me for not replying sooner. I covered early steering wheels in my column (pages 63-64) of Vol. 45, No. 6 March/April 2022. The change corresponds roughly to the 1953 model year (October 1952) though the Petri wheel was available during the beginning of this model year.
