Porsche Brakes might squeal - Porsche

How dare you imagine for even a moment the precision engineering of a Porsche product was imperfect. Your complaints about brake squeal are invalid. You should know brake squeal is actually good, very good.

Since you do not, Porsche has prepared a video to educate you so that you stop saying bad things.
The video elaborates on the effect that is essentially tiny vibrations caused by the friction of the brake rotor and brake pad making contact. Variations in temperature, speed, humidity and corrosion could all cause some unintended noise, but are not usually serious issues. That horrible noise just means your Porsche is doing work, like keeping you alive. The vehicle has been engineered to perfection; it is the endlessly variable conditions of life that are imperfect. Now we know.
