1958 Carrera GS Speedster

Here is the very first style of Porsche alloys; which is a combination of steel and aluminum. The outer rims are aluminum while the center is steel. The arrows are pointing to the steel rivets which are holding the two parts together.

The steel rivets are a different color than the aluminum. All of the wheels have just been sandblasted in preparation for paint.
