Just read in a Belgian car magazine that "the past few months" Michelin has released a new version of "Michelin Pilot Alpin" winter tyres (featuring three new technologies: Maxi-Edge, Stabiligrip and a new Helio Compound 3G rubber mix). Homologated by Porsche as standard (winter) tyre for the 911.

Are those the same tires as the ones commented before in this thread (winter 2011-2012) or are those an upgraded version ?

Michelin website only indicates 18" winter tires for the 1M:
- Michelin Pilot Alpin 235/40 R18 95 V
- Michelin Pilot Alpin 235/40 R18 95 W

These seem not to be available in the size for the stock 19" 1M wheels (at least not for the rear wheels)
(pro memoria: front: 245/35/19 | rear: 265/35/19).
