The brakes on the 3.0L cars ('75-77 930) were same as 911S of that period. The larger finned "930" brakes didn't come out until '78+.

From what I was told, some late 77 930ís did have the factory front calipers from the 78 930 model. Maybe Snodgrass can chime in.

Yeh; I've also heard that some 3,0 930's got "regular" cast-iron instead of alloy 'S' calipers (ironically, the supposedly less-desirable cast-iron ones apparently flex less & deal somewhat better with excessive heat - although both fall into the "chocolate" category with boost)..

There is nothing wrong with early 930 brakes.........unless you want to stop in a hurry..lol

LOL! I can't imagine... When I had my car PPI'd before buying it, original middie brakes were already upgraded to 3.2 rotors/calipers. My wrench expressed concern about those brakes with a 3.3, so we talked it over. His view was that they'd stop you from triple digits, used in anger - but they'd be done, stick a fork in them, don't expect them to do that again...

I figured that was acceptable for a street-driven car and bought it anyway Used them for years before I went 996 N/A...

These brakes are more than adequate with stock sized rubber 205/225 on 15s. I have “upgraded” 16s with 205/245s, I could get them to feel spongy after a hard session of canyon carving, but I’m harder on bakes than I should be.

Put more meat or stickier meat and you start pushing the limits of the original intent. I’ve upgraded to later bakes cause I like the look and I was originally preparing to track my car before the values took off. But a good pad and well maintained original brake system works well for this car.

Um not quite.

The 76 and 77 911S got cast iron calipers.

The 76 and 77 930s got the early S Aluminum calipers as did the Carreras of this timeframe.

The Aluminum calipers from the mid 1970's G models are not the "same" as the "early S Aluminum" calipers used on the F models. Mostly the same yes but slightly different as I recall...I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure this is correct.
