On a 911 Turbo, there is one thing above all else that both the accelerator and brake pedals deliver when you press them – and that’s excitement.
The standard braking system of the 911 Turbo models features six-piston fixed calipers at the front and four-piston fixed calipers at the rear.
The red-painted calipers have a monobloc (one-piece) aluminium construction offering greater stability, better ‘bite’ characteristics under heavy braking and a further reduction in unsprung weight. The brakes are quick to apply and release, whilst the pedal travel is short and the bite point precise and consistent.
The front and rear discs have a generous diameter of 350 mm. All four discs are cross-drilled for better performance in the wet. The distinctive drill-hole pattern enables a faster response by allowing rapid dispersal of the water vapour generated under braking.
The discs are also internally vented for better heat dispersal. The result: excellent stability in all conditions. Cooling air is directed onto the brakes to further improve performance. A powerful 9-inch tandem brake booster unit enables easier pedal inputs.
Braking distances are further reduced with the aid of two functions in the standard Porsche Stability Management (PSM) : electronic brake prefill and brake assist.
The new 911 Turbo S models come equipped with the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) as standard.
