Welcome to the Org! Let me preface what I say with: I've not tried it! However, it seems that so long as the wheel diameters (ie tire size) and lug patterns are the same or within the range of operation for the wheel well, it should work. I'm limited in my knowledge of the whole tire/wheel well thing, but I do know that we managed to fit Acura rims on a 74 Beetle -- if that could be done I am positive Porsche tires on a new Beetle is entirely possible! :)

Genuine Porsche wheels will need adapters to be able to mount to the VW hub.
