Mystery Fluid - Porsche Classic Brake Fluid

Recommended Posts

The topic regarding which brake fluid to use (Motul, SRF, Torque, Endless, etc) has been beaten to death, but nowhere have I been able to find a discussion on Porsche Classic Brake Fluid.  
https://www.suncoastparts.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=P&Product_Code=SKUBFCLASSIC
The "Classic" brake fluid is recommended for Porsche's MY 2004 or older.  This is a different fluid than the current factory brake fluid.  https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/00004330552.html
Does anyone have any good info about this "Classic" and why I would want to use this for my 996 C4S vs the current factory fluid or one of the high performance brands mentioned above?

Thanks for the tip!  Do you know why Porsche recommends a different brake fluid for their "classics"?

They used seals made of sn older material that are not always compatible with modern fluids.
