Thank you for the info.

996 rear right?!

And this will work without adapters?

Yes 996 rear calipers. You will have to get a set of caliper mounts made to work with the 996. I am using a set of mounts from the Stoptech ST22 BBK

I think it will be difficult or near impossible to get this mounts without buying the calipers from stoptech..

I don't have the part numbers with me but you can purchase caliper mounts from stop tech. Once you have them you will have to make some minor adjustments (align them to your rotor) and install the Porsche calipers.

Do you know If there are any other brake calipers for the rear that will fit with a taller disc?

The problem you run into with a taller disc is the accommodations for the integrated parking brake shoes. The disc hat is extremely deep to accommodate them. I like using BMW parts for the brake upgrade so that its relatively easy to get replacement discs etc. I found a number of bigger discs that I would have considered but they could not accommodate the parking brake structure.

Thank your for sharing your knowledge and experience!

I‘m quite sure I will let the rears oem. The pricing of the adapters will be more than I spent for the brembos in the front...
