Our team at Lonestar Auto Boutique recently had the opportunity to work on a 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S for a client that brought it in straight from the dealership. The client's request was to have the wheels powder coated black and ceramic coated to protect the vehicle's paint and ensure a long-lasting shine.
At Lonestar Auto Boutique, we have had the pleasure of working on a wide range of vehicles. However, the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is undoubtedly one of the most impressive and awe-inspiring vehicles that we've have had the pleasure of working on.
From the moment you lay eyes on the Carrera 4S, it is clear that this is a vehicle that exudes power, style, and elegance. With its sleek, aerodynamic lines and unmistakable Porsche design, the Carrera 4S commands attention and turns heads wherever it goes.
But the Carrera 4S is not just a pretty face - under the hood lies a powerful 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine that produces a staggering 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. This power is transmitted to all four wheels, ensuring that the Carrera 4S is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Of course, the Carrera 4S is not just about raw power - it also boasts a range of advanced technologies and features that make it a joy to drive. The 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission provides lightning-fast gear changes, while the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.
Inside the cabin, the Carrera 4S is just as impressive, with a range of advanced features and technologies designed to enhance the driving experience. From the fully digital Porsche Advanced Cockpit to the 10.9-inch touchscreen display with Porsche Communication Management (PCM), the Carrera 4S is packed with cutting-edge technology and features.
In short, the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering, combining stunning design, raw power, advanced technologies, and unparalleled driving dynamics.
Before beginning the powder coating process, the wheels underwent a thorough inspection to ensure that no cracks, curb rash, or other damage could be aggravated by the heat of the powder coating process. After confirming that the wheels were in good condition, they were removed from the vehicle, and the cleaning process began.
To prepare the wheels for powder coating, the team stripped them of any previous coatings or paint using a specialized chemical solution. Then, they sandblasted the wheels to ensure that the surface was clean and free of debris. This step is crucial to ensure that the powder coating adheres correctly and is durable.
After thoroughly cleaning and prepping the wheels, the team proceeded to the powder coating process. They applied an electrostatically charged powder coating to the wheels, which was then cured in a high-temperature oven. The curing process is critical to ensure that the coating hardens properly and has maximum durability.
Once the powder coating process was complete, the team inspected the wheels for any imperfections and made any necessary touch-ups. They then reinstalled the wheels onto the Porsche, ensuring that the lug nuts were torqued to the manufacturer's specifications.
After the wheels were back on the vehicle, the team moved onto the ceramic coating process. They applied a liquid polymer that chemically bonds with the paint, forming a protective layer that is highly resistant to UV rays, chemicals, and other contaminants. They applied the ceramic coating to the entire vehicle, including the wheels, and allowed it to cure for the recommended amount of time.
The final result was stunning - the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S looked better than ever with its new powder-coated wheels and ceramic coating. The client was thrilled with the outcome, and the team was happy to have provided a service that not only enhances the vehicle's appearance but also protects it from damage and ensures long-term durability.
