Successful competition cars like the Porsche 917, The Porsche Carrera RSR Turbo, the 935, 936, the 956 and 962 and last, but not least the Formula 1 TAG Turbo engine used by the McLaren team, all illustrate the vast experience amassed by Porsche designers in the sphere of turbocharging. Such experience has constantly benefitted the 911 Turbo.

The hydraulic dual circuit, servo assisted system incorporates deeply finned, light alloy, four piston calipers, with cross-drilled internally ventilated discs. On a dry surface the Turbo can brake from 62.5 mph to rest in just 3.3 seconds.
