Porsche Panamera - Braking system

Braking system

The Panamera models have a braking system equipped with six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear. The brake calipers on the Panamera and Panamera 4 are finished in black; on the Panamera S models, they are silver colored; on the Panamera S E-Hybrid they are Acid Green, and on the Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo they are red.

The brake discs are slotted and internally vented for enhanced braking performance – even under extreme conditions – and rapid heat dispersal. The brake discs on the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS have a diameter of 390 mm at the front and 350 mm at the rear, whilst on the other Panamera models the discs are 360 mm in diameter at the front and 330 mm at the rear.

The electric parking brake, which you can activate and deactivate manually, releases automatically as you pull away. Thanks to the hold function, you can pull away without ever rolling back.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

On request, your Panamera can be fitted with a braking system that has proven itself on the race track: the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs on the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 350 mm at the rear; the other models feature discs with a diameter of 390 and 350 mm at the front and rear, respectively.

PCCB is characterized by its low thermal expansion under heavy braking, which helps to prevent deformation. Furthermore, the ceramic brake discs are totally resistant to corrosion and offer better noise-damping properties.

The key advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. Although enhanced performance and fuel economy are very noticeable benefits: above all, it represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses. That means better handling, better road holding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads.

Optional for the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS in conjunction with 20-inch wheels; for other Panamera models, only compatible with 19-inch wheels or larger.

The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake with yellow brake callipers is a standard feature of the Panamera Turbo S.
