993 brakes


Recommended Posts

I have a buddy looking at a 993 whose asking my opinion.

I have another buddy who had a 993 and the brakes failed twice within the first year. By the way he describes it, the entire hydraulics went down with no failsafe. This description is supported by a co-worker as the second time happened right in front of his office.

I've seen 996 brakes go down but I did a quick search and find nothing on 993's. Is this an issue that crops up on a "usual" basis?

I think this is very uncommon and there is no "known" weakness or problem with the brakes on the 993.

I owned a 993 for 3 years and researched and it for about a year prior to purchase (just sold it this year) I can honestly say I have never heard of a incident like this on a street driven 993. I do remember hearing about a failure at a track event where someone's aftermarket steel brake lines came loose and the car had a catastrophic failure as the brake fluid just evacuated the system. Your friend should have the car thoroughly checked about by a mechanic that is familiar with the 993. Also you may want to check out the 993 web board on Rennlist. A very heavy traffic board with some extremely knowledgeable (and some not so knowledgeable 993 guys). Hopefully some of the old guard will step out of the noise and help you with this situation.
