Default Porsche Panamera Brake Upgrade

This thread is for Porsche brake upgrade options.

First we like to take a look on the Panamera. It comes with 6-piston caliper 390mm rotor, and 4-piston 350mm rear rotor.

What stock brake set up can be so massive than this set up? is there a room for improvement? - Just read on:

Default Two piece rotors for 996 and Turbo (01-04)

Brembo Porsche 996 911 C4S and Turbo (2001-2004) Brembo 2-Piece Performance Rotors

Part #: 101.6003A Excluding PCCB

High performance 330x34mm two-piece full-floating rotor assemblies for 996 C4S & Turbo to work with stock calipers and pads. $1,515.25 per pair
These are cross drilled and silver plated to match the stock rears but are lighter and perform much better than stock units. The hats are billet aluminum, just like the Gran Turismo Big Brake kits, and use the same McLaren Hardware System.

Brembo 2pc Slotted 380x34mm Front Rotors PCCB Cars Porsche 997 Turbo 06-11 $2,107.19 per pair
These rotors are specific for the Porsche 997 Turbo. Because these rotors are PCCB replacements, you must also change the pad.

Brembo GT 2cp Slotted 350x28mm Rear Rotors for OEM Brakes Porsche 996 GT2/TT $2,011.19 per pair
Each rotor weighs only 16.9lbs compare to the stock rotor of 21.9lbs saving you 5lbs per corner.

Default 996 Turbo Brake Information

http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/9...h-fiction.html

Stock set up: 330x34 front; 330x28 rear.
Upgrade to 997 Turbo with 350x34 front; 350x28 rear

Front::
Coleman - The hats cost about $550 per pair and the rotor replacements are about $350 per pair plus hardware (12 rotor bolts each) and shipping. Total estd: $1,000 per pair

Rear:

If you won't care about retaining your emergency brake, you can swap your rear rotors to a two piece design as well, and plus them up. Otherwise your only plus sizing for the are the 997 Turbo rotor, and either using your 996 Caliper with a 12MM spacer and 997Turbo bolts, or going to the $1100 997Turbo calipers along with the 997Turbo rotor.

Rear: 330x28
997GT3/GT3 RS 10-11
Front: 380x34 (Incl. PCCB)

Default 996 GT2 Front brake discs vs. turbo

What is the rotor difference between 996 GT2 and 996 Turbo

The gt2/3 rotor's hat is about 2mm more towards the wheel then the turbo ones.
turbo's disc will fit GT2 ( or GT3 ) hub with 1.5mm spacer between the disc and the hub.

So the 996 turbo rotor is 1.5-2mm shallower than 996 GT2

To be exact it's 1.7mm

Front Brake Issues
GT2/3 Calipers - Direct bolt on
GT2/3 Rotors - NOT a direct bolt on

For rear axle:
If you won't care about retaining your emergency brake, you can swap your rear rotors to a two piece design as well, and plus them up. Otherwise your only plus sizing for the are the 997 Turbo rotor, and either using your 996 Caliper with a 12MM spacer and 997Turbo bolts, or going to the $1100 997Turbo calipers along with the 997Turbo rotor.

Default Racing Brake Technology - A Discussion about the truth of components

4/23/11

Team, I've invited Warren Lin, from http://www.racingbrake.com/ to come over and have an online discussion with our community about brake technology and where he thinks the current trend is, some truths, some myths dispelled, and what he has to offer the Porsche community. He's known here as Warren-RB!

Warren and I have spoken on the phone, and emailed back and forth for pretty much the whole of this week, and we've shared our thoughts concerning what is being sold currently in the market. Over the next week I hope to have this internet exchange of info growing to multiple pages...

Let's please keep this discussion CIVIL and stick with the facts only. Please, lets throw out what we think we know about a specific product. This discussion will lead to topics like material composition and moletuclar structures, as well as jargain regularly used in selling you a part, and what it truly means...

Mike
