Sounds like the car has track temp pads.
I ran Hawk Blue on my Mustang and had massive dust. The wheels were filthy after an afternoon of driving. I switched to Hawk street pads and reduced the dust to almost nothing between washes.

When PMB restored my 930 calipers I purchased the Porter pads they sell. I am very happy with them. I think the dust is less than Hawk Street pads and I had zero issues with them at Thunderhill. Brakes were great for my driving level. Probably not great for a track car or more experienced driver

I had HAWK HP+ pads on a 930 and they worked well with very little dust. They're made for street and occasional mild track use.
Good all around brake pad and never heard them squeak.

Does Hawk still make the HPS pads? I used them on my M3--good initial bite, no squealing and almost no dust. The HP+ would squeal like a trash truck on the M3, and the initial bite was not as good; they are more track-focused than the HPS ("S" for street) pads, and need to have some heat in them before they work up to their potential.

I put Hawk HPS pads on the 944 turbo, so far so good. It's now my daily driver and the dust issue is minimal.

Carbo tech hands down. Made to order and a bit pricey, but it's amazing how little brake dust these things produce. I have a highly modified TT930 and s highly modified F10 M5 with performance wheels on both that I used to dread cleaning after driving. Carbo tech = no more dust

We've also heard a lot of our customers/members say that the Hawk HPS are a great pad with minimal dust.
