    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    I would go for the Carrera Classic because:

    • They suit the 991 smooth shape more than the standard wheels. Standard wheels look somewhat rough with their aggressive spokes. More suited to a model with wings and spoilers IMO.
    • The colour scheme suits the white body better than the platinum.
    • The Carrera Classic  design makes the wheel look bigger and this optical illusion "fills" the wheel arches better.

    Only drawback, is the suspicion that the Classics are the heaviest amongst 991 wheel options.

    I second the vote for the Carrera Classics., especially with white..........


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Thanks a lot

     

    I am still thinking about platinum gloss wheels with SPASM and spacers .. would the combination give the car a more sporty aggressive look in comparison to classic wheels?


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    by the time you pay for spaces and platinum gloss painting, you could have got the Sport Techno instead which has 305 tyres at the rear and 0.5 in wider rims all round,  removing the need for spacers. Also rarer, and supposed to be lighter too.


    Re: Finally our 991 arrived to the dealer !!!! Pics !!!

    Hi Alex!

     

    May I ask for some more pics of your black 991 with semi gloss wheels under real light conditions?

    I´m in the decision making process to opt maybe for the same look and need some more input - thank you Smiley

    On some pics in the www ( mostly here : http://www.autogespot.nl/porsche/991-carrera-s/spots?spottype=photo&color=black ) the semi-gloss platinum wheels look sometimes brownish .... and do not fit to the black color of the car itself.

     

    Best regards

    Gregor

    P.S.: Mine will be basalt black metallic instead of solid black ..... but the look regarding the platinum semi-gloss wheels should be nearly the same ....... or do you believe that it will not fit to metallic black Smiley

    indecision True, but the electric sunroof is an option I would not recommend. We barely use it and it does not open as much as it looks. 

    Regarding exterior colour, solid black looks insane, BUT its too too delicate. We have washed the 991 several times and so far no swirls, but the process is like washing a baby just borned indecision. Go for metallic black, it will look great with the painted wheels !!

    The sunroof is great to get rid of  the annoying buffeting this car has when the windows are down, just tilt it and its gone at any speed. Honestly I dont use my sunroof either, but at this price point, IMO every car should have one, wether you like it or not.
