Porsche 911 Turbo S on HRE Classic Wheels Spells Retro

The Porsche 911 Turbo S is the kind of supercar that doesn’t need to prove anything to anybody, simply because it can eat many other machines alive no matter the weather conditions. The most muscular Neunelfer in the line-up is also the target of many, many aftermarket companies and we’re here to talk about one that has a special pair of centerlock shoes.

The current-generation 911 Turbo S you are looking at has ditched its factory rims for a set of HRE 300 wheels. These come in a 21-inch size, using a Brushed Clear finish for a so-fresh-so-clean appearance that suits the car’s White hue.

The retro styling cues of these wheels perfectly match the 911’s evergreen styling, which is why these particular rollers were chosen. The thin spokes also give us a pretty good view of the supercar’s standard carbon-ceramic brakes.

As always with 911s, most of the action takes place at the rear end, which is why the rims at the back have a concave profile. While this scheme is used by many aftermarket wheels, as we said, the profile of the Porsche makes the pieces of the puzzle fit in nicely.

We’ll remind you Porsche has its own take in terms of retro wheels and we’re referring to the Fuchs rims here. Actually named Fuchsfelge, their story dates back to the 1960. That’s when Porsche was looking for wheels that would suit its 911. The carmaker reached Otto Fuchs, who built the first mass-produced forged aluminium wheels. By the way, you can get a taste of the Fuchs universe here.
