My car was ordered new with these stock wheels.

OEM 997 19" Turbo II Wheels - Made by Otto Fuchs
OEM Center Caps with Colored Crests

Specs (edited on 4/26/2017):
Front: 8 x 19" ET57
Rear: 11 x 19" ET67

IMO these are one of the best looking Porsche wheels!

A few close photos:

Beautiful Car

I used to love P21S wax until I discovered Collinite paste wax. Definitely more durable, but just as easy to apply and buff off.

Then I moved onto the world of sealants but the best one I've found was CarParo's Hydro2. It's a simple spray on, and spray off and you can see the beading form right in front of your eyes. Can use it on wheels and windows. Windows seem like they have the strongest form of Rain-X on them. Makes what used to be weekly washes,.... bi-weekly - super simple. I look forward to the rain now, because it's just a joke with this product.


Skip to the 30 second mark. I recommend using one of those chemical/bug sprayers rather than a handheld sprayer. But only because your hand may hurt after washing the car in general.

Just thought I'd share!

that's very rare to see.

in canada the non turbo II option only come with 8 inch fronts and for a narrowbody car, 11x19 ET67 rear. the c4/c4s will come with 11x19" ET51 but still the 8 inch ET57 front wheel.

i thought always the 8.5/11ET51 was reserved for only a genuine 997.2 turbo.... imo your wider setup is perfect for the narrowbody. looks almost flush.

Yes, looks almost flush in person and gives the car a more "muscular" look

I am starting to like white vehicles more and more. Just bought a new Dodge Ram 1500, in white. Great looking car. Nicely detailed.

Zaino does that, but with alot more work. Going off to investigate that stuff now.
