Not sure but are you sure those are TechArt Wheels or 997 Carrera Wheels? If they are I have a feeling these caps will fit into those wheels.
BTW... Sick ride!!!

That e-bay post has a lot of misinformation.

You can buy them from Sonnen Porsche (www.porscheoemparts.com) for around $40 each and they are a 997 part number. They fit most of the 18 and 19 inch Porsche wheels. I believe they fit the 20 inch wheels also.

They were not created for the 2012 Speedster. And the center cap removal tool is a bit of over kill. You can use smaller allen wrenches buy sticking them in the holes in the cap and pulling. They don't cause any damage.

I have the center caps on my black victor innsbruck wheels.

Here is the part number 99736130310041
The price at Sonnen Porsche is $40.44 each.

I am always put off by people who insist on writing the description with all caps, large font text. It's like they are trying too hard to persuade you that what they have is authentic. Having looked at the pictures, the caps say "Made in Italy" and do not have a Porsche part number. This would be a concern to me....

I know this conversation is a couple months old, but they do show a Porsche part number in the picture of that listing (that is still up). I can't read it very well, but it is the 7PP601 number at the bottom. They do appear to be genuine to me.
