go to tirerack.com
enter your year and model and they will give you the exact
models that are available. They are the biggest seller and
have good prices.
Edgeracing.net has tires for Autocross and Track.

The models are provided for the Michelin and Continental tires. I can' t recall what model Pirellis are on some Boxes.

There are factory installed. There are tons of other makes for the car. These are pretty good tires however and they are all pretty pricey!

I've been a fan of Kumho's but doggonit, they're slipperly when it's 50 degrees or cooler outside. Yikes! Even with traction control turned on, I'm slipping all over the place.

Yes, good tires but not very long lasting in my experience.

"N" is the designation for "Porsche Factory Equiptment"
