    RS Spyder wheels - press release

    From porsche press site:

    Exclusive for the Porsche 911 Turbo

    New 19-Inch Wheels in RS Spyder Design with Innovative Central Locking


    Stuttgart . Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, now offers new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels exclusively for the 911 Turbo models as an absolute highlight in the range of highly specialised, customised features available exclusively on new models (ex works). The most outstanding feature of these forged aluminium lightweight wheels with their seven U-shaped double spokes is the unique, newly developed central locking. Instead of the wheel nuts generally used in motorsport, these very special wheels come with wheel bolts fastening the new 19-inch RS Spyder wheels firmly and safely on the wheel bearing.

    The innovative security mechanism on the wheel bearing is made up of a cartridge fitted in the wheel hub with spring-mounted security bolts. Standing out clearly and impressively, the bolts on the new central locking are eloxy-plated in titanium colour and thus differ clearly and distinctly from the silver-coloured paintwork on the 19-inch RS Spyder wheels.

    The special design of the new wheels is derived from the wheels on Porsche’s RS Spyder racing car, the sports prototype from Weissach which only recently won all titles in the ALMS American Le Mans Series for the third time in a row.

    A further outstanding achievement of the Porsche RS Spyder is that it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its class right from the start in its very first try and also brought home the winner’s title in the European Le Mans Series.

    The new wheel will be available as an option on the 911 Turbo as of January 2009, selling at a base price in the Euro countries of Euro 2,950.-. The retail price of the 19-inch RS Spyder wheel in Germany including 19 per cent VAT is Euro 3,510.50.

    It was about time they offered a decent looking wheel with clean design, for the Turbo.

    The standard and only wheel so far, doesn't look very nice for my taste at least.


    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    But this one looks GOOD!!!

    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    does anyone havea sense if these will be retrofitable to earlier tt's , pics of the mounting pieces make it appear so.....expensive no doubt but they look great

    why?????

    i find it hard to believe the changes made to rennteam were made with much / any user input. while rc has obviously invested much time and money in rennteam its ultimately only as good as those who participate.

    i find the new format way to sterile or slick...the old version 1.0 was simple and for lack of a better word had a classic look to it ....i personally didnt find it lacking , it was familiar as were the other likeminded fanatics./ users....an easy place to visit for a tt fix / update.....thats kinda gone for me......whats up with the mb bmw inclusions their culture is not the same as porsche culture ....being something for everyone dosent work in any business....renteam was focused, now not so much

    critically , there is w  a  y  to much open space to my semi-trained eye.....the toolbar for various functions have the feel that it was designed by perhaps a micrsoft nerd that could have been designing anything......come on its rennteam something special to a lot of us

    i guess for me its lost a lot of its personality , a lobotomy might achieve similar results. i dont see myself wasting as much time here its no longer quick and easy, at least for me


    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    Wouldn't these make more sense on the GT3?

    Weight? Lighter? 


    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    18 inch is better.

    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    They are a nice Factory Order alternative to the stock wheel, though pricey.

    I had always intended on ordering wheels painted, and now I wonder if this is possible. on the RS wheel.

    Re: RS Spyder wheels - press release

    Hmm, it is not so visible in the press pictures I posted (BTW, original huge resolution opens when you double click them ;)), but in your photo's it clearly shows a color difference between the nut and the wheel... seems like I would have the wheels painted to color match the nuts or the other way round...
