  1. Some of the latest Porsche's have been known to have Knock-off Wheels. Now this is NOT new to Porsche by any means. In fact, many of the early 356's and 356A's had them, and they were made by Rudge. Even MB had them too. They were great for Racing and changing Tires quickly, but they were also heavier. A Porsche with them can sometimes bring as much as ________ if equipped with Rudge Knock-offs from the Factory.

  2. Interesting enough, Rudge started off making Spoked Wire Wheels which necessitated their getting Patents for a Splined Hub Wheel Fitment with a Single Central Nut to hold them on. In what Country did Rudge start?

  3. When the very first 901, that became a 911, came out as a 1965 model, the VIN had 6 digits, in 1968 it was expanded to 8 digits, in 1969 it was expanded again to 9 digits, in 1970 it expanded again to 10 digits, and so on. In what year did Porsche finally go to the 17 digit system that we have today on all cars for the USA?
