Braking system

Porsche brakes set standards worldwide for stopping power and stability. For the Boxster models, braking performance is as essential as driving performance.

Both models are equipped with four-piston aluminum 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.

 Large brake calipers help to provide excellent braking and component stability even during continuous use. These two characteristics have also been optimised by the brake ventilation system with air spoiler at the front and rear axles.

The 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. With a diameter of 330 mm, the front brake discs of the Boxster S are 15 mm larger than those of the Boxster. The diameter of the rear brake discs is 299 mm on both models. The brake calipers on the Boxster and Boxster S are black and red, respectively.
