    Did Porsche copy the old Corvette wheels for the 997/Boxster

    I was walking out of a restaurant to my car the other day and walked past a C5 Corvette and happened to look down at the wheels and though to myself how much they looked like the new 997S/Boxster wheels. I love these wheels by the way and ordered them on my 987S Boxster.

    If you hollow out the ends of the Corvette wheel they would look even closer. Have a look:



    Interesting huh?

    I doubt Porsche and BMW and other European concerns get their inspiration from GM and Ford. More likely the other way around. E.g. Ferarri designed the precursor to chevy's "Mako Shark" in the late 50s

    Good catch. There are a lot of similarities....
