PostPosted: Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:21 pm    Post subject: Factory Brake Options from new Reply with quote

Hello all,

Does anyone know if it was possible to spec c2s brakes on an early Gen2 Carrera (non-S)?

I know a standard c2 has plain callipers, and that you could spec a c2 with pccb's (yellow callipers). Was it possible to spec the brakes from the S (red callipers)?

I'm trying to establish if my c2 has simply had its callipers painted red, and Porsche decals added, or they are indeed the brakes from the carrera S.

Is there an easy way I can tell? (Preferably without disassembly). Is the disc diameter different?



I'm considering making the most of the ECP 50% discount this weekend.

Thanks in anticipation....

To the best of my knowledge, red calipers were not an option on a 997 c2 3.6
The brakes on the 997 c2s , were the brakes from a 996 turbo /c4s turbo body.
0n 996, there was an option to have red calipers from the factory
Difficult to tell from your photo if the calipers are c2 or c2s
But the discs on a c2s are bigger than a c2
Go and measure the disc diameter then check with the factory spec and you should Be able to find the answer

Having done a bit more research;

The 997.2 carrera has a 'closed' calliper, meaning there is a solid bridge between the two sides, so you can't slide pads out without removing calliper.

The carrera S has an 'open' calliper, so you can change pads more easily.

997-2 C2 & C2S share the exact same front & rear hub/wheel carriers and even the same discs at the rear.

Enter discount code holiday50 when the items are in your basket. It applies to brakes and some other products (50% discount). It was due to end on Sunday but might still be running.
If it doesn't work, try holiday75 (smaller discount).

I didn't get anything for the Pork but saved £140 on front discs and pads for the wife's Audi.

Check eBay too as ECP (and their sister company carparts4less) often sell on there for less than their discounted prices Thumb
