Porsche 992 Turbo S

I have recently ordered a 992 Turbo S and been informed it isn't supplied with a jack or wheel brace. This may be unnecessary if I had a puncture as there is no spare wheel, however removing a wheel on my own premises is a must for cleaning and protection. Has anyone else had this problem with this or other models?
 
Thanks

It’s probably because the car has centrelock wheels. These are tightened to a very high torque and are deemed not to DIY. There’s a big discussion on this in P’heads forum at the moment (am I allowed to reference that?!) Which is worth reading

Thanks for your response.
Well that may be the case but many owners are more practical than others and are DIYers!
I‘d welcome a general discussion and answer to the issue.

The car comes supplied with a centre-lock ¾" drive socket and a little tool enabling removal of the decorative centre cap and relocation of the locking spindle.
 
With a puncture, you are expected to have the vehicle recovered for tyre replacement. However, in the configurator, you can order tyre sealing compound and an electric air compressor (£42) for use in an emergency. In my experience, these have rather limited application and most of us also carry a Silverline puncture repair kit and tube of superglue, since these tend to be of more practical use and have been proved several times on tour.
 
BTW, there's a more recent description of centre-lock wheel removal here https://www.porscheclubgb.com/forum/tm.aspx?m=1004120
 
I now use a proprietary wheel alignment tool rather than the little trolley mentioned in the article since I find this more convenient. Also, I have a brand new spare aligner surplus to my needs atm that I would sell, so please PM if you need further details.

Hi Clive,
 
Thanks for the information. Seems an expensive tool for what it appears to be !
Do you have a telephone number I could speak to you on ?
I'm not taking delivery of my car until September but just getting a feel for what I may need in certain situations.
Regards

I haven't had any previous experience of centre locks. I would like the ability to remove the wheels if needed although its not something i would regularly do. With the centre lock being locked i assume they dont need to be routinely checked for tightness.
I have checked u tube for how to. Do owners bother to get either the torque converter or torque multiplier or do you just rely on recovery and opc to carry out wheel removal.
Thanks

The tools needed to remove centrelock wheels are descibed in the forum link quoted in post #6 of this thread.
 
Some of us do invest in this equipment to remove these wheels for cleaning, rouine meantenance etc. It all depends on how much of a DIY'er you are.
 
Either way, it's impractical to carry these within the car for roadside repairs - and there's no spare wheel anyway. 
 
We tend to just carry the Silverline kit, a tube of superglue and a tyre inflator/compressor for emergency puncture repairs.
 
Regards,

I am not sure that will do the job you want it to do. According to the details I have looked at, the Sealey STW 292 is only rated to 500nm, the centre locks need to be tightened to 600nm. Additionally I do not think the 1 meter breaker bar, even with an extension, will be man enough to undo the centre locks. 
Hopefully I will be proved wrong but I suspect you would be better off with a torque multiplier such as:

Looks like that multiplier has 3/4" drive each side, so you'll need a 3/4" drive torque wrench or a socket adapter for your 1/2" drive wrench.
Aterntively the Sealey AK629 multiplier has 1/2" to 3/4" drive as standard.
