I have used old 18" turbo wheels on my hybrid with no issues for the past two winters. IIRC, the hybrid and old CS are about the same weight.
I may be in the minority, but I am not a fan of the hybrid (purchased ~13 months ago). The power delivery stinks (I hate having to floor it to get porsche-like acceleration) and the transmission is way too clunky (perhaps i am spoiled by the PDK in my other car). My achieved gas mileage is in the low 20s (I have a 20-minute back-road commute to the office), which is not a lot better than the CS would get. The engine has no soul and no porsche character. The V8 in my old 2008 CS was sweet. I will never buy a p-car with a non p-car engine again.
Slightly off topic, but my dealer just told me that Porsche just put a hold on the customer deliveries of these cars as there is some safety concern with the roof?
