Lets see some more pics of the car.

What is the history?

Forgive the questions, but it is a very nice 928.

Cheers,

Not trying to hijack this thread here...

Yes, this is my car. Sorry for the late response, been gone awhile. I purchased the car back in 2002, from a gentleman that originally bought it in Germany and had it shipped to Florida in Jan 2001. The car made it's first 'appearance' at SITM 2001, where the previous owner's mechanic had just finished doing all the powder coating work in the engine. But all the originial conversion work was done by Koenig Specials back in 1991-1992. The interior was gutted and redone in this light grey leather, it covers everything inside.

Wheel shots from an old Koenig Specials sales poster. You can tell these are dated, the wheel centers have to be either 15"/16".

You know what is amazing about the 928!?
You can put the most modern wheel there is and it doe's not look out of place...still.
Even Jesus looks good in it.

Thanks, Joe.

I've been planning on CCWs for track wheels for a while now. (Still am planning.) Something like 8.5" and 10" to fit without rolling.

I like the look: stylish and functional. The price is good for custom-built, forged, 3-piece wheels as well.

Hello all,
This thread is awsome! I am interested in getting some TT rims as shown below.
Will they fit an 80 928 without any mods? Spacers, Fender Rolling etc. ?

Thanks,

Trevor (AKA Swoop)

BTW, do those C-Notes keep spinning when you come to a stop, or that be extra?
You gotta wonder about the durability of the finish on those....but does it really matter? By the time the finish starts to fade, the car's re-poed anyway.
'Tis so chimes in the resident repo-man.

hey justin, what colour is that? car looks fantastic, i really like the older style rear with a wing spoiler.

trevor, im pretty sure the twin turbo 11x18" rims will fit on the rear with 295 rubber although you will probably have to roll the guard inner edges. i have these on one of my cars and they are a really good looking wheel.

DR's 19's take the trophy in my eyes. Our cars need a little modernization: wheels are a great way to do it (& lowering)
