Resting on our laurels isn’t our style. That’s why we have also adapted PCCB dimensions to match the performance capabilities of the new 911 GT3. The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs are now 410 mm in diameter at the front and 390 mm at the rear for even more formidable braking performance.
The use of six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all finished in yellow – helps ensure extremely high brake forces which, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.
PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Excellent fade resistance provides greater balance when slowing from racetrack speeds.
The key advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50% lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. As well as enhancing performance and fuel economy, this represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses.
This results in better road holding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and improved handling.
Please note that circuit racing, trackday use and other forms of performance driving can significantly reduce the service life of even the most durable pads and discs. As with conventional high-performance braking systems, we recommend that all brake components be professionally inspected and replaced where necessary after every track event.
