Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

  • Please see the chapter "BRAKES" on page 56.

The high-performance brake system is designed for optimal braking effect at all speeds and temperatures.

Certain speeds, braking forces and ambient conditions (such as temperature and humidity) therefore might cause brake noises.

Wear on the different components and braking system, such as brake pads and brake discs, depends to a great extent on the individual driving style and the conditions of use and therefore cannot be expressed in actual miles on the road.

The values communicated by Porsche are based on normal operation adapted to traffic. Wear increases considerably when the vehicle is driven on race tracks or through an aggressive driving style.

  • Please consult an authorized Porsche dealer about the current guidelines in effect before such use of your vehicle.

Setting and operating vehicle components when driving



There is a danger of accident if you set or operate the on-board computer, radio, navigation system, telephone or other equipment when driving.

This could distract you from the traffic and cause you to lose control of the vehicle resulting in serious personal injury or death.

  • Operate the components while driving only if the traffic situation allows you to do so safely.
  • Carry out any complicated operating or setting procedures only with the vehicle stationary.

Portable Fuel Containers



Portable fuel containers may leak, whether they are full or partially empty. Fuel leaking from a portable container carried in your vehicle could, in case of an accident, cause a fire or explosion, resulting in serious personal injury or death.

  • Never carry additional fuel in portable containers in your vehicle.

Ground Clearance



Risk of damage. The vehicle may touch the ground as a result of reduced ground clearance.

  • Drive carefully and slowly on steep slopes (e.g. parking lots, curbs, uneven roads, lifting platforms etc.).
  • Avoid steep ramps.
