Sixt Germany Porsche - Winter / All-season Tires on Sports Cars

Hi There,

I rent once or twice a year from Sixt Germany. For the last two summers I rented / upgraded to BMW M8s from Munich. In both cases, on hot days (30c+) I found they handled in an unusual fashion and when checking the tires I found they had fitted all-seasons, rather than summer tires (and in fact the rears were 265, rather than 285).

This year Porsche have done a deal with Sixt, and you can rent 911's in Germany.

Has anyone tried the 911 in Germany as yet (ideally at FRA). Do you know if they come on summer tires? I have one here in Australia, and I am damn sure I don't want to be driving on the autobahn on all-seasons.

Cheers.....

Does anyone know what the other XSMR cars are? I initially had a guaranteed model reservation for a 911 GTS coupe but it is now a "or similar" reservation. Wondering what bait and switch might happen.

I can add one data point from July 2022. I rented an X4M Competition from FRA, and it had winter tires on it still.
