    New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    I just learned that the 2007 turbo wheels are a no cost option on 2007 C2S, whereas the Carrera Sport Wheels are $650. Which wheel looks better?

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    What about the GT3's? Are they also a no cost option in 2007?

    You sure?

    I have a friend who has his C4S coming in September. He has turbo wheels on that and he is paying approx 550GBP for the priviledge.

    Porsche USA under "build car" has prices listed. No cost for turbo wheel, $650usd for XXR sport wheel.

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    That is strange that the Turbo wheel is not more expensive. I love the look of the Turbo wheel, but only on the turbo. It is too aggressive and complicated for the design of the standard carrera IMHO. Get the sport wheels.

    I seriously doubt they are a no cost option. I believe they are forged (higher cost) while all the other Porsche wheels are cast. Anyway, of the new wheels I like the ones on the GT3 better plus you get 12 inch rear.

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    I agree with jhbrennan,--must be a mistake on the site. You don't get forged rims for less than the pressure cast ones...

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    I agree with the "mistake" comment. The PCNA configurator is notorious for wrong or incomplete information. There are a lot of blanks still for the MY07 configurations so I think that they just haven't loaded the price in yet.

    On a similar topic, there does not appear to be a way to get colored crests with the Turbo wheels. Anyone have any information on that?

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    The site is wrong. If you look at the name of the wheel when you move your mouse over it, it says "404 - $0". The 404 is a typical internet code for "data not found".

    I also noticed that the prices went up for some of the cheaper colors. 2 of the colors previously $700 are now $3000. I'm hoping that's a mistake too.

    Re: New turbo wheels or Carrera Sport Wheels?

    I would absolutely pick the XRR wheels over the Turbo variety. A cleaner look that will no doubt age more gracefully.

    This is probably not wrong. Some colors are switching places on the pricing ladder for MY07.

    Yup. Lapis Blue and Cobalt Blue switched places. Lapis is now a premium color; Cobalt is now a standard metallic color.
