996 Ceramic Brake Conversion Kit
The 911 GT2 comes with the most effective braking system ever featured on a production Porsche: the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). This is a powerful new technology designed to cope with even the most extreme conditions on racetrack and road.
At the heart of the new technology is a ceramic brake disc made of specially treated carbon fiber silicated in a high-vacuum process at approximately 1,700 degrees Celsius. The PCCB disc is cross-drilled and internally vented, and is approximately 50% lighter than conventional alternatives. Since this weight is unsprung, i.e., not supported by the suspension, PCCB automatically improves agility and handling. Another feature of the system is the innovative new composite brake pad, which combines with the ceramic disc to deliver extremely high and constant levels of friction under braking. By replacing conventional metal components with composite pads and discs, temperature is no longer a factor in brake performance. This configuration not only helps minimise braking distances - particularly under heavy use - it also ensures safer deceleration from high speed thanks to improved fade resistance.
In an emergency stop, PCCB immediately delivers maximum stopping power to the road. Abrasion is extremely low compared with metal discs, with each PCCB disc offering a service life of approximately 300,000 km. The new composite brake pads also last around twice as long as conventional ones. What's more, the new PCCB pads do not absorb water, making for outstanding performance in the wet.
Not compatible with narrow body C2 or C4 models, each kit is a complete retro-fit kit for a 996 Turbo, Carrera 4S, GT2, or GT3. This kit includes all of the necessary parts for the conversion. Please contact us for availability.
