Porsche Locking Wheel Nuts

How many different pattern locks do Porsche use?

I know BMW for example has around 6 patterns...

I bought my 987 used about a yr ago & it didn't come with a key & the dealer I bought from doesn't have it

.

The dealer should have a case set with every lock socket possible for your car. All they have to do is match the socket and they can order you one off the socket number. This has been discussed; if you do a search, you'll find more information.

Throw those locks away. They are nothing but trouble.

There are about 30 different styles of Porsche wheel locks. The bag the lock is in should have a serial number with the version of the lock you have. Every Porsche dealer should have each version, because they are not supposed to use your key. But if their non-Porsche locks then you may be SOL, and have to drill them off.

I find wheel locks valuable even if they do cause a little extra trouble when you have to change a tire. I would much rather use a wheel lock then find my car on blocks.
