We want to speed everything up. Progress included. The same applies to negative acceleration. That’s because even brakes are a source of potential. So we’ve upsized the brake system of the new 911 to match the increased power output.
The S models are equipped with red sixpiston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear. The brake chambers at the front axle are now made from aluminum. Brake disc diameters are 350 mm at the front, 330 mm at the rear. For enhanced stability and braking performance.
On all models, the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction. This makes them tougher but lightweight and enables a more rapid response and release of the brake even under extreme loads. The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are cross-drilled for improved wet braking and optimum cooling.
