Default Wheel Question on 2001 C2 Purchase

I am in the process of purchasing a 2001 C2 Cabriolet and have a question on the wheels that come with the car. The hood sticker lists XRL which I am finding is the 18" Sport Design Wheel, but it appears different wheels are on the car now. I haven't been able to figure out what brand/model of wheels they are. Does anybody know what these are or can confirm they are not OEM?

I have been looking to purchase a 996 for awhile and appreciate all the insight provided on this forum. Thanks everyone.

Nice looking car. Congrats.

Doesnt look like factory P car wheels.

That said pull off a wheel and look for Porsche part number and stamp on inside of wheel.

"New to me" car requires full, proper wheel detail within 48 hours of purchase. This requires wheels off!

Thanks! I am getting a PPI done this week and will ask them to look for the part number/stamp.

I already have all my detailing supplies lined up and ready to go if the PPI checks out.

Don't forget to ask for the hard top that should come with the car.

Do all cabriolets come with hard tops, or is it an option? On the sticker I don't see the code 550 for hard top.

Those are Victor Equipment Turismo wheels. I used to have some on my 2003.

FYI Victor Equipment is a division of TSW which specializes in Porsche wheels.

Those are good looking wheels. If you do want correct Carrera II 18" wheels I will have two sets for sale soon shoot me a PM if you end up getting the car and are interested.

All 996 cabs came with a hardtop until ~2005 when they became an extra charge option. One could delete the HT for small price reduction, $1500? After 05 it was an extra cost option to get it, $2500?

Some buyers without storage space would just leave them at the dealer.
