Cruise Control & Onboard Computer

You may well wonder whether a function to limit and control speed really has any place in a sports car that was designed for an exhilarating driving experience, but conditions for motorists have changed in recent years.

The introduction of average-speed cameras on motorways, dual carriageways and in long sections of roadworks have made cruise control an attractive option for Porsche drivers.

Rather than trusting your right foot and having to check the speedo every few hundred yards, switching on the cruise control for the duration of the speed check area means you can relax and forget about the possibility of picking up a £100 fine and three points on your licence.

With more than 300 miles of the country’s roads being converted into ‘smart motorways’ with variable speed limits closely monitored by cameras, the chances of being fined for a momentary lapse in concentration are set to increase – particularly as the cameras are usually in operation 24 hours a day.

While the ‘smart motorways’ are a good idea for traffic management on stretches that are notoriously busy, some motorists have complained that they spend too much time focusing on the speedometer instead of the road while driving through them. The ability to control their speed with a quick adjustment of the cruise control stalk helps to avoid that distraction.

Avoiding speeding fines and points is not the only benefit of installing retrofit cruise control, as equipment manufacturers also claim the systems help to reduce driver fatigue and improve fuel efficiency. But, as you’ve chosen to buy a Porsche 911 or Boxster, we think we know which issue will be the most important for you.

At Revolution Porsche Specialists, we regularly install retrofit cruise control to a wide range of Porsche models, helping to give our customers peace of mind that they won’t be caught out by speed cameras in controlled areas.

We supply and fit genuine Porsche cruise control stalks for:

  • 996 C2 / C4 / Turbo (2002-2004): £469*
  • Boxster (2003-2004): £469*
  • Gen 1 and 2 987/Cayman and 997: £450
  • 981 Boxster/Cayman and 991:£475
  • Colour Coded leather cover £POA

All prices are subject to VAT.

*Add £50 to all the above prices if the 4 stalks including onboard computer and cruise are installed. These are the genuine Porsche stalk controls; we do not fit the cheaper single dash-mounted button type.
