    Brakes on Cayenne

    Why can no one ( even Porsche importers ) tell me how efficiently the brakes work ? 100klm -0 in how many meters? None of the test magazines have published the data, how come ? Maybe you guys at RC know ?

    Re: Brakes on Cayenne

    They look to be the indentical brakes used on the new GT3 (6-piston 350mm front, 4-piston 350mm rear). They work pretty well on that car, but it weighs 1000kg less...

    Re: Brakes on Cayenne

    You're right, I couldn't find any data.

    The only thing I found was in "l'auto journal" (French magazine):
    From 130km/h (Approx 80mph) to zero.

    BMW X5 4.6i: 68m
    Cadillac Escalade: 88.1m
    Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7l: 73m
    Range Rover V8 Vogue (new model): 75.2m
    Lexus RX300: 72.5m
    ML 55 AMG: 73.7m

    Bottom line, The X5 has excellent breaks and the Escalade sucks. The difference is 20m (60ft) or 5 Cayenne !!!!

    I believe the Cayenne will be around the 70m mark...

    Most of the cars are between 68m and 74m with the best in class at around 64-65m (996 TT 64.4m)

    Re: Brakes on Cayenne

    Greetings from Austria!

    I'm on a short ski vacation with my family in Austria right now and don't have precise test figures at hand. As far as I remember, the Cayenne Turbo does 100 kph to 0 kph braking in around 39-40 meters. As soon as I get back home, I try to find more precise figures. The Cayenne brakes pretty good for it's weight (it weights around 300 kg more than the ML 55), however I find the brake feel a little bit too soft compared to my ML 55 AMG.

    Don't expect wonders though: the Cayenne has good to very good SUV brakes but if you take a 996 Turbo and a Cayenne Turbo from 200 kph to 0 kph, I bet the results would be shocking. Almost 900 kg weight difference speak for itself.
    So the 100 kph to 0 kph figure isn't that interesting but the 200 kph to 0 kph figure. Maybe we'll see a car magazine do such a brake testing, it would be highly interesting.
