At Porsche, we also set ourselves high standards for braking performance. So it goes without saying that our brake systems are super-sized and adapted to the high power output of the engine.
At the front, the Macan models are equipped with six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers. The brake discs are internally vented for consistently high braking power, even during continuous use.
To cope with the performance capability of the Macan models, the brake discs fitted to the front axle are up to 360 mm in diameter.
The brake calipers of the Macan S Diesel and Macan S are silver-coloured. On the Macan Turbo – red.
As an option, you can have your Macan equipped with the track-proven Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)*.
The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs have a diameter of 396 mm at the front axle and a thickness of 38 mm. At the rear, they are 370 mm in diameter and 30 mm thick.
Their low thermal expansion prevents deformation under heavy braking. Furthermore, the ceramic brake discs are totally resistant to corrosion and offer more favourable noise-damping properties.
The key advantage is that the brake discs are approximately 50% lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. Enhanced performance and fuel economy are not the only noticeable benefits: above all, it represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses. The results are improved handling, better roadholding and increased ride comfort.
Optional for all Macan models.
