Default Centerlock wheel tool

I took my car to an indy shop for paint correction / PPF and they stated that Porsche GT cars should have center lock removal kits in the frunk. Fortunately, they have the Porsche tools to remove centerlocks to ceramic the wheels / calipers. I didn't think the cars came with the tool but wanted to confirm as we just picked up a CPO .1RS. Thanks.

they come with the adapter for the wheel nuts, but not the torque wrench or torque multiplier to remove or torque the nuts. and most shops don't have a 3/4 torque wrench or torque multiplier.

Yes, and within the large metal socket should be a smaller plastic tool with a metal hook that is used for both removing the plastic center cap (hooked side) as well as locking the mechanism once torqued (wider plastic faceted end used to jiggle the mechanism until it pops out flush - Very important step for safety!).

Hello OP, (As a suggestion)...
Since you found the CL tool and locking device missing, may I suggest you ensure you also look in both side compartments under the frunk, one which has the tow-hook (driver side) and the opposite side an emergency tire repair kit. Also, look under the rectangular shaped box next to the CL tool holder. There, you should have a mini tire air pump (12V). And...what about the owner’s manual?
If you should ever need to use it...the tow hook receptical on the rear is under the license plate, and on the front side (much easier to see), under the circular tab on the passenger side front fascia.
Good Luck!!!!

Being a newbie to centerlocks with this RS (my '04 GT3 didn't have nothing but lugs!), does someone reputable online sell a centerlock "starter kit" (centering tube I've seen, spare lug and tool, ideal torque bar and wrench, etc.) for working with these at home?

You bet!!!
Here’s a YouTube video ref CL wheel removal/install that I found to be very informative (I have it saved). Thanks to Jeff Strimel for producing the video...
Best,
JB
