Porsche will retain a steering wheel in their cars as long as they can

Attached Image As autonomous technologies become more widespread and advance, the day will come when cars will not require a steering wheel but Porsche has revealed that it will aim to retain steering wheel for as long as possible.

That said, Porsche's Vice President of the Executive Board and member of the Executive Board, Finance and IT, Lutz Meschke said that certain self-driving features are welcomed and will work well with the company's philosophy.

An interesting idea that Porsche is considering is the using the self-driving technology for coaching a driver how to be fast on a track.


Dubbed the "Mark Webber-function" by Meschke, the function will allow the vehicle to drive autonomously on a racetrack just like how Webber would drive. The car will drives on an ideal line, demonstrates ideal braking in the braking zone, where to best shift and where to accelerate.

Such a system would collect all the important data and when the human driver takes control, the car could show them the ideal lines and provide direct feedback.
