Need help identifying wheels 17x 7.5, 17x9.5, factory or aftermarket?

I am more familiar with the 70s and 80s Fuchs wheels and am hoping to identify these wheels received on trade (wheels and tires had been mounted on a 1985 930 coupe). They are 17x 7.5 (ET23) and 17x 9.5 (ET15), made in Italy and manufactured in Dec 2000. Tires mounted are 225/45ZR17 and 255/40ZR17 respectively. Are these factory wheels and if so which model were they supplied on? Any info appreciated.

From what I've seen, replicas. Any Porsche parts have a Porsche part number moulded somewhere on the back.

those should be the fitment for SC and similar .. they are very likely Mille Migla
I have the cup version in the same offset and size ....

good wheels .. heavy as hell ... but people like them ....

they are not factory placed or "stock" ..

Fakes, as others have said, early offset is a dead give-a-way

Thought I would offer these wheels for sale in the classifieds, any guidance on a fair asking price?
The tires are old and are of no value but the wheels are in very good shape. Any ideas?
