Carbon Ceramics = expensive, and they have a very short lifespan.. they are also lighter in weight and can deal with a high operating heat range, but once they cool down from that high, that's the end of their life cycle. Eventhough Porsche offers them on their Production cars, it's a very costly option to have (think in the range of $20k to $35k for a set, front and rear and matching brake pads and calipers). On the street, they will work like any brakes, nothing special.. the real potential is when they are driven hard and that there's no fading that occurs during the operation of high heat.
