We would like to speed up everything. Even development. This applies also to negative acceleration. As even in a topic like braking, there is potential.
This is why we adjusted in the 911 the dimensioning of the brake system to the engine performance. The basic 911 models are installed with four-piston monobloc aluminium fixed calipers with black anodised finished. The disc brake diameter front and back is 330 mm.
The S-models are supplied with red six-piston monobloc aluminium fixed calipers at the front and four-piston monobloc aluminium fixed calipers at the rear. The brake covers at the front axle are manufactured in aluminium. The brake disc diameter is 350 mm at the front and 330 mm at the back. For improved brake performance and stability.
The calipers are locked in all models. The advantages:
higher inherent stability, better pressure point behaviour even with extreme loads, and low weight. The pedal travel is short, the pressure points accurate. The brake discs are cross-drilled to provide better brake reaction even in wet conditions, as well as optimal cooling.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
