Excuse my ignorance...

Is it normal for slotted rotors to come in two pieces? Or is this a performance thing?

It'* a performance thing.

Rotors come in one piece, (most street cars) or 2 pieces (exotics, race, performance after market). I am sure there are exceptions but not many.

Two-piece are generally bolted (like mine) or floating. Floating rotors have the mounting holes in the rotor or hat elongated and use special hardware to allow them to expand independently as they get hot.
