Default Driving gloves

Serious question. I drive my Cab with to top down year round as long as the temp is above 45. Problem is my hands get really cold. Yes heat and seat warmers on(no heated wheel). Is it douchy to wear driving gloves? I'm kind of leaning yes.

Screw what other people think. If you want to wear gloves, then wear gloves.

In cooler weather, I doubt anyone will give it a second thought, anyways.

^what they said x100.

But if your going to lose sleep over it, go and have your deeler install a heated wheel. I drive with the sun roof back all the time, even in the winter so long as the sun is shinning. But I have a heated wheel , and a hat. The heated wheel is my most favorite option, next to seat ventilation.

Yea miss the heated wheel on my Cab. But hate the way the GT sports wheel looks all cluttered up with the multifunction buttons.

Thin Neoprene cycling gloves grip well and are not understood as douche material.

or I leave these wool ones in a car all winter:

Good point on the clutter. I'd option my next without the multi-function if heat was available.

Cheers. Get some gloves. And a hat.

By the way. I'd like to add that if I saw someone driving their 991 Cab with gloves on I'd think they are a total BOSS.

I have a hardtop 911T. I drive with fingerless driving gloves all of the time. I get better grip on the wheel and shifter but can still use the touchscreen and such. They are basic black. I don’t think anyone else cares and I sure don’t care what they think.

Keep your our hands warm. Get some gloves.

If it's 45F weather, then gloves are a yes. If it's 100F temp out, that's a trying too hard move.

Exactly this. Gloves are fine in a temperature appropriate situation.

A lot of people wear driving gloves when on the race track.

I know it sounds silly but with the right wheel/glove material combination, steering becomes absurdly easier, at any steering angle. Maybe only the truly lazy like me can appreciate this.

This may sound even more silly, but because the easier steering is actually because of increased grip per grip effort, I personally think even just one glove subjectively gives a better sense of control and improved steering feedback. Which is only a plus with these cars.

Give it a try.
