If your just doing pads there should be no need in removing the calipers.
The answer is.. it depends

the Brembos used from 964 up come oem w/ anti squeel spyders that are glued solidly to the pads.

The spring side of the spyder clips into the pistons

Sometimes you can get a scraper between the pad and spyder to separate them, if you can then the pad can be removed w/o taking the caliper off it's mount, then the spyder can be removed as well.

But if you cannot, then the caliper will need to be unbolted. Not really a big deal either way.
