Porsche Reinvents The Brake Rotor - No Rust, Low Dust, No Fade!

Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB) are a brilliant new brake technology.

Porsche Surface Coated Brakes have a thin layer of tungsten carbide on the outside of the rotor. This tungsten carbide layer means no rust, significantly less brake dust, and they don't have brake fade typical of cast-iron brake rotors. The tungsten carbide layer is applied using high velocity oxygen fuel spray, and provides a rotor that lasts about 30% longer than traditional iron rotors. Better performance comes at a price, but they're about 1/3 the cost of carbon ceramic rotors. These PSCB rotors come standard on the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne Coupe Turbo. Check out the video to learn all about Porsche's world-first brakes!

  • I gotta say... Porsche is coming up with such brilliant technology but yet you still see many YouTube going and buying Lambo's and Ferrari's. C'mon guys, do you wanna show you are a true gear head or do you wanna follow the crowd and leave the area with the greenest grass?

    • I've got to admit that Porsche has some great tech, but Lamborgini, McLaren and Ferrari do have that as well: forged carbon, DRS-style aero (performante), KERS, clever suspension...

    • I agree... I am not saying that Lamborghini and Ferrari don't make good cars. I am saying that they are not as exciting as a GT3 RS or a turbo S in my opinion. Otherwise the Huracan, 488 pista and the oh so brilliant 720 S are exceptional cars.

  • Love the engineering however when he got to replacement cost my jaw dropped. I’ll stick to standard please which themselves are not crap.

  • I need a set of these on my V8 Vantage.

    Also, Porsche didn't develop them, Bosch did. They're called iDisc, and they make them for Porsche. Check out the info on their website.
