Yes, you got it. The 968 Club Sport (available only in Europe) the 968
w/M030 sport suspension, 944S2 w/M030, 88 944TS, 89 944T, 928 S4 & 928 GT
all had the same front caliper. Porsche did not offer these in red. Can't
say about the calipers on the RS2.

Do not have the specs on the Boxster monoblocks. They appear to be similar
in size to the small 4 piston 944 calipers.
