Yes - there is a contact point in there than opens when the rotor spins above a certain RPM . . . same as was used on 914s, other early 911s and many other car makes of that era. On the later model Turbos, Porsche started using a rev limiter that is mounted under the driver's seat - if the plug to it gets corrosion on it, solder joints inside break, etc., the engine stops running and you're left stranded (unlike the relatively quick, roadside rotor change on your car).
