Brake Caliper types


Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 50k miles;

Are you aware of any Porsche models in the last 20 years that used single piston floating calipers? My impression is that most if not all Porsches used fixed calipers with 4 pistons. Why are 1-piston-floating calipers not widely used, even though apparently they are more cost effective?
