This is dangerous stuff you are trying, because the piston sizes of the calipers Front and rear are drastically different sizes. You may now create a situation where you will lock up the rear brakes under heavy braking and spin. The caliper's piston diameters are sized to automatically bias braking pad forces and operate as a matched set front and rear, even though the pads are the same size. Once you start swapping around calipers this force balance is destroyed. Your car does not have a bias proportioning valve so this is how Porsche controls the braking force balance in the early cars.
Just be careful, and look into this more before you get into trouble and possibly wreck the car.
