I think it could, but you might not want to.

By the looks of your pic that you posted, the car appears to be lowered. It has a great stance as is. Some anecdotal evidence that the ride isn't as good as suspension is set up for 18/19 wheel sizes

Thank you FZP & MaxA.

I've been offered some 20" turbo II's at a really good price..but from my research...whilst technically possible...the consensus does indeed appear to be why would you risk the handling characteristics of this great car..

I'll give these a pass.

Thanks again

Agreed, there are a few on here running 20" on a 997 and they seem happy with them, but from what I have learnt 18" is the best ride 19" is the best compromise of look v ride quality 20" is a hard ride. Thumb

+1, also factor in the additional weight penalty and increase in rotational mass. The handling wont be the same.

But still fine for pootling around town etc.
