    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    The forged the Fuch the turbo-twists all simple minimalist signature wheels that were unmistakable Porsche to the point that they did not look right on any other car ... I think that was what they were trying to do with the lobster forks but missed . I feel the wheels that will define the car for this decade have not been released yet and Porsche must be working on it . If the Turbo comes out without a truly unique and beautiful wheel it will be an opportunity missed when it come to a true signature piece that matches and really fits this car ..... almost an extension of the 997 and not have the appearance of an accessory . I like all the wheels they are selling now but they just seem a little busy the Techart wheels are closer in the direction that I think the wheels need to be but still far from the real deal but they do have that simple almost minimal kind of design .

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    I'll go on record as saying that I despise turbo-twists. Turbo-twists were goofy looking, feminine and forgettable. If Porsche was going after an impeller, or turbine theme, they did a limp job of it that has no strong presence. You want to see a stunning "turbo-twist" theme wheel, look no further than the Mercedes SLR. That's a wheel (of course, bolted to a half million dollar car). The Fuch is timeless Porsche though, I'll agree with you on that. a mid-80's 911 with Fuchs and no whale tail is high on my list of future acquisitions.

    If I was forced to choose turbo-twists on my 997S, I'd buy aftermarket wheels and make flower pots out of the twists.

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    turbo-twists whould not look good on a 997 but they were beautiful on the 933 models in my opinion and fit the car . To look at a 993 turbo with those wheels not only looked good it fit the car and kept it looking factory . I do not know about flower pots but I think they would make a beutiful base for a glass tp coffie table .....

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    I personally think that some of the Champion wheels are sporty looking and match the 997 well.

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    Yep the twist do look gross and extremely dated , never liked them when they first came out , way too bulky looking..

    JMO .

    throt..

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    I agree Ruf's are best. Their matte finish is nice.

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    Quite like those.

    How about this ? Crisp. Clean.

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    @ Porker: those wheels look nice on that black 997..
    Dont you just love the way the rear fenders wrap themselves around those fat wheels...

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    Absolutely, it's like an animal ready to jump

    DO you think they used spacers on the sportec car?
    I have the impression the standard car has its wheels a little more inside his arches.

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997

    Re: Is Porsche still missing the perfect wheels for the 997
