on the new Porsche Panamera, the front brake calipers are mounted toward the front of the wheel as opposed to the rear of the wheel. so my question is, does this pose any advantages/disadvantages of where the brake caliper is positioned? I’ve really only seen rear mounted brakes on sportier cars, while front mounted ones are usually on cheaper cars, more regular cars if you know what I mean. (camry and all the other beige cars) in fact, the panamera is one of the only sporty cars with front mounted brakes. werid.

mounted toward the front of the wheel as opposed to the 911's brakes, which are mounted toward to the rear
