The Porsche Braking System
The braking system is more than just the brake pads, master cylinder, rotors, calipers, and lines. These mechanical components will only work when supported with sufficient hydraulic brake fluid. Brake fluid transfers stopping power efficiently without compression when you push the brake pedal.
Without good brake fluid, your brakes are going to have a hard time stopping your car, if they are able to stop it at all. The brake fluid is essential to the brakes being able to transfer stopping power from the brake pedal through the master cylinder and into the brakes where the calipers clamp the brake pads against the rotors.

Low Brake Fluid Signs
Low brake fluid is often a symptom of other problems within your car such as a worn component opening what is supposed to be a closed system. Since the brake lines are a closed system, low brake fluid may be an indication of a leak in the brake lines or of brake pads that are very low and that they need to be replaced.
If your brake fluid is low you are going to have issues with your car not being able to stop or with it being very difficult to stop. You may notice that if you are driving a car with very low brake fluid you may have to push your brake pedal all the way to the floor before your car will stop. Hearing strange noises when braking is the final telltale sign of needing brake service.
