The wild technology behind Porsche's newest brakes
The earliest automobiles had brakes made of wood, pressed against the rim or tire by a hand lever. Now, saying a car's brakes are "wooden" is almost as cliché as determining that it "understeers at the limit." Utter either phrase amidst intelligent company at your own risk.
Chintzy phraseology or not, the evolution of brake technology is no joke. In 2017, Porsche debuted a brake technology that it hoped would change the way we think about brake wear. Three years later, was Porsche just pulling our collective leg? Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained took a deep dive into the claims.
Neither Kyle nor Jason said anything about the WET performance of these remarkable brakes. There are no surface slots or cross-drilled holes in the rotor to help flush moisture from between the pads and rotor surfaces. What about that boys??
