I find this list interesting, like the Cayman list, and the list in Panorama from Feburary 2005.


But, for the time being, I am interested in what company has made the brake rotors for Porsche since 1997, the first year of the Boxster. There could be multiple suppliers. It could depend on the model. Sport cars, Cayenne. It could also depend on the model year.

The 997 list says Brembo supplies the wheel-end brake "modules." I do not know if this includes the rotors or pads or whatever. The Cayman list does not mention Brembo or modules. The Panorama list says Brembo for brake modules.

About all I know is that on the 986 Brembo did not make the pads. The Brembo name is on the pads in white paint, but Galfer or Textar and their part numbers are stamped on the metal backing plate.

I have never seen markings on the 986 OEM rotors to indicate what company(s) make them.

I did send an email to SHW a few days ago, and so far no response.

For all I know Brembo makes the calipers, and outsources the rotors and pads. Thus, it becomes a Brembo "module" because it is supplied as an assembly of parts to Porsche when it is bolted to the car.

Brembo has the name brand recognition.
