A new exhibit is opening this week at Albrechtsburg Castle in Meissen, Germany to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the discovery of porcelain. As part of the show, Porsche will be displaying one of several ceramic applications that they have pioneered in cars. The 2001 911 GT2 was the first series production car to use carbon ceramic brake rotors, one of which will be on display at the castle. The carbon ceramic brakes are lighter than their metal equivalents, don't corrode, have better stopping power and withstand heat much better than conventional units. The 2003-2006 Carrera GT was the first model to use ceramic clutch plates.
