Why you are waiting for the factory to continue to support a car decades out of production is also lost on me.

My suggestion, like one other person posted, is to put modern rubber on the car, dealer and factory be damned. It has EVERY relevance to your post. It's not a Veyron, it doesn't use bespoke tires, move on.


Why would I allow someone to take a risk let alone me because you say so. You want to guarantee that nothing happens you ever seen a CGT go on a lift - guessing on both counts ... nope!

I am complaining that Porsche needs to place effort of which they have done in the past.

Try reaching out to WTDoom - he tracks his with seeming regularity at Spa & the like. Think he also had a role in pre-production 918 development, so may have ideas about tyre improvements over the intervening years. Think he may have posted something on pistonheads some time back, related to newer Michelins.

Thanks - it's about Porsche / Michelin upgrading tires to current like they did in the past - simply time for an upgrade.

Wtdoom - recall tracks the cgt with slicks.

From plenty of experience, I would recommend 345 instead of 335 on the rear.

Also, move the rear sway bar drop links to the hole closest to the tip of the sway bar and enjoy less "drifty" handling.
