Wilwood’s big brake kits are engineered to elevate the performance of Porsche 911s to modern standards. The front setup includes Aerolite six-piston calipers with advanced features such as stainless steel pistons and high-temperature seals. The rotors are significantly larger than the original equipment, providing better brake torque and fade resistance.

In the rear, the Superlite calipers ensure proper brake bias with one-piece premium iron alloy rotors that are also larger than the OE versions. The rotors are finished in black E-coat and come in various slotting options for enhanced performance and aesthetics.
