They didn't look that different from the 993tt calipers.

For most purposes, I personally like the 993tt calipers the best for ease of
service. The spring clips on the 993tt calipers can easily be removed with
snap-ring pliers and then the pads just come right out. The 996/996tt
calipers use a little cotter pin and a big pin to hold down spring metal
clips, much more fussy IMO. The Brembos on some other cars are even more
fussy- it was a PITA to change pads in the Subaru.
