    997 Wheels ??

    Anbody know what the wheels are that we see on the 997 test mules?
    Tiink they look pretty good even in black

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    Those rims in my personal opinon are butt ugly. Those are test wheels, check some of the other 997 threads to see other wheels. All are five spoke and wll be in either 19" or 18" wheels sizes.

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    Funny, but the design of the rims you posted looks exactly like Mercedes-Benz rims.

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    those are actually 993 C2 wheels, porsche uses those on all their test mules (hell, even the 03 boxster test mules 2 years ago)

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    The wheels on the mules are usually specifically manufactured to Porsche specs. They have a pretty boring and ugly design because test mules don't have to look good (on the contrary) and Porsche doesn't want to give away the design of the new rims of the upcoming model. That simple.

    Don't worry, these rims won't be available on the final 997.

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    You're right....almost identical! (and very similar to the 90s cup wheels!


    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    I think those retro wheels look great!!

    Re: 997 Wheels ??

    Those are most likely test wheels, the 997 will have optional 19" wheels.
