Brakes The new 718 Boxster S

Porsche The new 718 Boxster S - Brakes


In sport, performance counts. It applies to the engine and it also applies to the brakes. The new 718 models are therefore equipped with four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers.

On the new 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, the brake calipers come with a black finish – red on the S models. Brake disc diameters are 330 mm at the front and 299 mm at the rear.

To make them tougher yet lighter and enable a more rapid response – even under extreme loads – the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction.

The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are crossdrilled and internally vented, which helps to provide improved wet braking and optimum cooling.

Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

Proven in motorsport, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the new 718 models, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB have a diameter of 350 mm at the front and rear – for even more formidable braking performance.

PCCB features six-piston monobloc aluminium fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.

PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety under high-speed braking is also improved thanks to its excellent fading stability.

Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. This results in better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.
