That is a hefty price tag, if you're buying it just to save washing wheels weekly.

Top picture is the one with more miles on it, correct?

I shouldn't/wouldn't/couldn't part with $9k for them either. If I got them near free on a used 991 that I wanted and knew had little track use, fine.
Watch out for ceramic rotors chipping easily when uninstalling and installing wheels. With Centerloks I'd keep one of those mounting tools in the car, JIC of an emergency need for tire service. If 5 lug wheels, id keep a couple of long and smooth studs in the car for the same purpose, JIC. PCCB rotors are fragile, and junk if chipped on the edge.
The new PCSB at 1/3 the cost of PCCB are interesting and will bear watching, as Porsche rolls them out across the models.

I had carbon ceramics on a non-Porsche, and found them to be expensive bling. I didn't want to use them on track due to huge replacement cost of wearable item. I didn't use the performance on the street and they are noisy/squeaky. They do keep brake dust off your wheels and look great, but that's not worth the cost to me. They are like a nice watch - something that car people know when they see it and have good performance, but are really just jewelry.

As to squeaking, it's interesting. Two almost brand new cars (both <1k miles), one a GT3RS and one a T. On the T, no squeaking at all. On the GT3RS, lots of squeaking. Pad difference? Just a coincidence? Haven't looked into this and his car does have double the mileage of mine (a whopping 800 vs 400 miles), but still. Time will tell.

As to PSCB, I totally agree. Went out to the 992 launch at ATLPEC and asked the product manager about it. He said they were under investigation, but no plans to roll them on the 992 for now. I thought this was very interesting, but didn't get to probe further as to why.

Lastly, and I know not everyone has this outlook, but for me, I knew I would want an upgrade from the base brakes on the T. Doing anything aftermarket wasn't going to be cheap and then they weren't under warranty. So for me, the $8520 option on the T became easier to justify.

I like the fact I can replace my steel brakes about 5 times for the cost of the box being checked.

Bought my car used, so the PCCB's are a blessing to me as far as the dust. As long as I don't go too long between washings, they are very quiet also.


However, it's a good thing I can't afford to track this car (as this time) or I'd be in trouble and needing to do a steel swap.

Hahahaha, I have just racked up 15,000 km's (Not miles) and had the pads checked and they are at 50%. You think we can tell which one of us visits the track and which one does not?

For $9000 you could pay to have some dusting done. Just saying.
