    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    Thanks for sharing ed_

    The turbo wheels look real good on the cayman - Very nice pictures.

    great pics, actually surprised that Porsche makes the Turbo wheels available on any other car than the Turbo?

    What about exclusivity?



    I was about to comment on that - not a fan of Porsche making Turbo wheels available on any other car...

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    I love the new wheels looks really good in person and pictures.

    Of course it's exclusive (for the Cayman) - you can't have the Cayman wheels on a Turbo, can you?

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    Thanks for posting - I love that interior design pack, looks great. I would definitely specify that if I went for a Cayman - and I very nearly did but in the end I went for a Boxster 3.4. Even now I'm not sure I made the right choice

    I'm sorry, but I think one of the coolest things about buying a Porsche is the
    way you can custom order your car. I found it so rewarding going through the Tequipment items and putting my car together.
    I chose Carrera S wheels for my Cayman S. Should they be kept exclusive to the 997? I think not.
    If the Turbo wheels were available at the time I would have definitely ordered them.
    I reckon by making the Turbo wheels available to other models makes Porsche the family it is.

    No problem guys, I'm still in holidays....

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    What is the big deal? Fuchs wheels were available on the 944 (of course, in narrower widths, as is the case here...)

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    thanks

    No big deal at all, they should make the 997 engine available for the Baxster/Cayman as well!

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    Actually, it is; but again, in a smaller size; 3.4 instead of 3.6 or 3.8. :-)

    Actually size does matter!!!

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    Sure it does, but that was the not the basis of the original complaint. People were complaining that the Turbo wheels style/design was being offered on the Boxster. They were not complaining because it was being offered on the Boxster in a particular size, or in the same size as on the Turbo.

    Thanks for your sensible comments KMM.
    From what you're saying, by offering Turbo wheels to other models (be it in smaller sizes) is nothing new to way Porsche operates.

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    from the pic, the cayman brake disc looks so small compare to the turbo wheel. go get bigger breaks! lol, other than that, it's all good

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    I agree. Need to see Red under behind those wheels. Also, for some odd reason the base Cayman's exhaust really compliments the Turbo wheels and visa versa. Just something that caught my eye.

    If you drove a 997TT, you wouldn't think Turbo wheels on any base model would be "cool"

    Now you're being a bit presumptuous. Please don't presume to know what I'd think.

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    I don't see why 997TT owners would care about the wheels. It doesn't make the Cayman faster, it doesn't take anyway any of the 'presteige" of the turbo. It's a cosmetic piece...thats it

    Now if Porsche had stuck VTG or something on the Cayman, then i could see about TT owners complaing

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    Do the turbo wheels come with colored center crests on the cayman? I cant add the colored centers in the build your porsche online.

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    No they are smoked chrome and black to match the rest of the wheel

    Re: Pics of base Cayman with Turbo wheels

    So there is no way I can order the colored centers????
