Using iPhones as Brake Pads in a Porsche Just Because

iPhone brake pads

Call them crazy.

So you find yourself suddenly stuck in a situation where your brake pads are completely gone and you have multiple Apple iPhones in your car. WHAT DO YOU DO?!?!

Use the iPhones as brake calipers, of course!

The guys at EverythingApplePro decided to try it out on a 996 Porsche 911 Carrera upgraded with the 911 Turbo’s larger brake calipers. On one side they used two iPhones with their displays facing the discs, while the other side had the aluminum cases facing the discs.

The crew went out and did three stops from 20-, 40-, and 60 mph to rest. During the tests, the phones provided nothing short of awful stopping power and caught on fire during the latter two tests.

In the end, only one survived, so don’t borrow any of your friend’s phones for replacement brake pads anytime soon!

Do you think Nokia cell phones could be used as brake pads and still work afterwards?
