Porsche 981 Boxster Wheel after heavy road impact

11th August 2013

An interesting problem entered the JZM Porsche UK service workshop this week, in the form of a brand new 981 Boxster which had been driven over a heavy object left in the road.

One criticism of the newer Porsche cars is that they are not as tough as the old ones. This wheel rim showed otherwise!

Damage to the wheel edges was minimal and the tyre had stayed on the rim. The interior was a different story, as the energy from the impact had been dissipated through the center of the rim and torn the metal clean in half!

We gave the Boxster a good check underneath, then checked and adjusted the chassis geometry on the car. With a new wheel and tyre, it drove as good as new.
