Original Porsche Wheels?

I've had several people tell me that my wheels are original Porsche wheels, but I haven't been able to verify that. I know they are definitely stamped as made in Germany, but is there any other way to make sure?

2000 Boxster S

Thanks in advance!

they look like speedlines, who made wheels for Porsche (and Ruf, similar to OZ and BBS). not oem or even an option on the boxster i don't think; seen moreso on the 964/993-era 911's. lots of knock-offs, dunno how to tell the difference. some info here:

It's either Speedline turbo 3.6 wheels or RH replicas.
Venice wheels make them too.

They look a lot better than I expected, but I wonder if they'd look as good on 986s of a different color.

If they are Porsche wheels, they should have a Porsche part number on the back like 996.123.123.123
