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.

  • 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.

  • Is it just me or does he look like a younger and skinnier doug demuro

  • Known by its maiden name as Bosch iDisc.

  • Impregnating the surface of a steel brake rotor with ceramic particles (which includes WC) for improved performance and lifetime has been known for quite some time, being used on aircraft and heavy duty trucks among others. It hasn't been used on cars because it's been judged as way too expensive for that application, and nobody developed it (until now). I think from the numbers reported, it's still way too expensive for volume use. Those with lots of money to spend will go all the way to the carbon composite technology, I would think.
