The Porsche Fuchsfelge for the first 911 in 1965 was the first forged wheel – and thus laid the foundation for a great historical devleopment. At the same time, however, other manufacturers had become convinced of the qualities of the Fuchsfelge. The so-called Baroque wheel of the Mercedes S-Class from 1972 was, for example, the first aluminium wheel made in series production.
Whether on classics such as the futuristic NSU Ro 80 or the sporty Opel Kadett GT/E, the Fuchsfelge became a visual identifying feature. Even today - when it comes to sportiness, then the forged wheel is already in pole position – whether on the Audi R8, Ferrari California, Porsche Spyder 918, the BMW 7er series or Rolls-Royce Phantom.
A whole new field has opened up for the lightweight forged wheel with electric cars. Here low weight is equated with greater range. No wonder the first electric BMW, the i3, drives through the city on Fuchsfelge wheels made by OTTO FUCHS - and only by OTTO FUCHS.
