Porsche 997 Turbo Front & Rear Performance Brake Rotors
Once you realize how quickly the 997 Turbo gets moving, you’ll realize just how important it is to make sure that it’s able to stop just as fast. Because the Turbo comes with extremely capable 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers, simply replacing the rotors yields a brake setup capable of handling the Turbo’s 480 horsepower with ease. The GiroDisc 350mm 2-piece floating rotors not only save a whopping 3.2 pounds per wheel in the front and 3.9 pounds per wheel in the rear, but they also dramatically increase overall braking performance.
The anodized 6061-T6 aluminum rotor hats definitely look great, but also effectively reduce unsprung weight and assist in dispersing heat away from critical moving parts such as wheel bearings and hub carriers. The proprietary cast-iron slotted rotors feature 32-vane venting to efficiently cool each rotor, reducing the likelihood of brake fade due to overheating. Even the GiroDisc rotor’s special high-temperature alloy spring washers are designed with a purpose, to provide consistent rattle-free performance even after the most grueling track days. The thing we like most about the GiroDisc rotors is that along with all the performance benefits, they’re a direct replacement for your factory rotors and even maintain full use of the factory e-brake.
