At Porsche, we also set ourselves high standards for braking performance. So it goes without saying that our brake systems are super-sized and adapted to the high power output of the engine.
On the front axle the Macan uses 4-piston fixed calipers finished in black featuring a 345mm front rotor. The Macan S, GTS, Turn and Turbo with performance package are upgraded to a 6-piston fixed front calipers. The S receives a silver finish and 350mm rotors, all other Macan variants get a caliper finished in red with the GTS and Turbo getting a 360mm rotor. The Macan Turbo with performance package gets a 390mm rotor.
On the rear axle the Macan, Macan S and Macan GTS get 330mm rotors. Both Turbo variants get 356mm rear rotors.
As an option, you can have your Macan equipped with the track-proven Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs have a diameter of 396 mm at the front axle and a thickness of 38 mm. At the rear, they are 370 mm in diameter and 30 mm thick.
Their low thermal expansion prevents deformation under heavy braking. Furthermore, the ceramic brake discs are totally resistant to corrosion and offer more favorable noise-damping properties.
The key advantage is that the brake discs are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. Enhanced performance and fuel economy are not the only noticeable benefits: above all, it represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses. The results are improved handling, better roadholding and increased comfort.
Optional for the Macan Turbo, Macan GTS, Macan S, Macan.
