Porsche brakes set standards worldwide for stopping power and stability. For the new Boxster models, braking performance is as essential as driving performance.
Both models are equipped with four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers at the front and rear. This design means that, not only are the brakes extremely resistant to deformation, they are lightweight for a particularly fast and sensitive braking response.
The new generation of brake caliper at the front axle, combined with enlarged brake pads and the newly developed brake booster, has managed to improve braking and component stability even during continuous use. These two characteristics have also been optimised by the newly developed brake ventilation system with a modified air spoiler at the front and rear axles.
The enhanced dynamics of the Boxster and Boxster S also demand appropriate brake discs. All Boxster brake discs are internally vented and cross-drilled for improved braking in wet conditions. On the Boxster S, the diameter of the front brake discs has been enlarged by 15 mm to 330 mm. At the rear, the diameter is the same as on the Boxster – 299 mm The brake calipers on the Boxster and Boxster S are black and red respectively.
