Ok, here's what I would do, and I've done a few ;-) First of all I have to ask, sorry; beg and plead with the previous owner to have another look, go to the dealer and see if they have a way of getting a code or a box in the shop full of random keys you can try (I have this at my shop), scour the car for every nook and cranny...everywhere, some people hide them.
If all of this fails, you need to go to Sears or any auto / tool store that sells sockets individually. Buy a handful of 1/2 inch drive 12 point sockets, you can return the ones you don't need. You want one that almost slides onto that keyed head of the wheel bolt, but won't. You will also need a BFH (big frickin hammer), a small sledge works well, a 6"-1/2" drive extension, a 1/2" johnson bar as well, not a ratchet handle, but a bar with a pivoting 1/2 stub on the end.
The first step, with the car on the ground, take the proper wheel wrench and TIGHTEN all the non-locking wheels bolts another 1/4 turn, or as much as you reasonbly can. The idea here is to take some of the tension off the one you are about to remove.
Now, put the socket that doesn't quite fit, on the 6" extension and put that on the johnson bar. Place this on the keyed socket as if you are going to remove it. Get a good position so that the johnson bar has some room to travel counter clockwise toward the ground. If possible, a good johnson bar will allow you to pivot it back toward the wheel, you want to keep the torque center-line inline with the wheel bolt if you know what I mean.
Now get a helper, one that has used a hammer before. Have him hold the 6" extension with one fist, and beat on the end of the johnson bar with the BFH, driving the extension and socket toward the wheel bolt. As he is striking it, you are supporting the bar and ever so slowly trying to undo the wheel bolt.
The combined effect of the over-tightened wheel bolts and the shock to the keyed bolt, while you drive the splines of the 12 point socket into the key's slots, will allow you to feel it release in increments as your helper hits the end of the johnson bar and extension.
I hope I explained this well enough, it has worked many times for me and after you have done the first one, the others go fairly well. I should probably make a youtube vid for fun.
Let me know how it works out.

to all ... it is easy..
position the(window) switch so the one (single-male )connector is up.
To this connector goes the split red-black stripe wire -the other end goes to the bottom left.Bottom right is the brown wire.
Middle wires are blue with white and black stripes .Position them so the window goes up correctly when you use the switch.
that is all ,now you can plug the switch back to the panel...

If you bought your 911 in the US, I think your compression ratio is about: 9.5:1, so, I would only use between 91 to 93 octane.
