Porsche had problems recently with the engine problems with the model 911 GT3; Occasionally vehicles caught fire.

Owners of 911 Carrera, 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman should park their car in such a case and the Inform the workshop.

Since the possible leak is close to the engine, it cannot be ruled out that the fuel will ignite and the vehicle catches fire, Porsche confirmed to auto motor und sport when asked.

Porsche is changing the fastening of the fuel collecting pipes

That is why Porsche will check 2,576 cars of the types mentioned in the workshop in Germany alone and, if necessary, replace the fastening screws with optimized screws. However, in view of the installation position of the boxer engines, the exchange is likely to be complex. A spokesman for the manufacturer said: “That can't be done in half an hour”.

Porsche emphasizes that this is purely a precautionary measure. The owners of the vehicles will be contacted directly by their responsible Porsche partner. The free workshop visit will take place as soon as possible by arrangement.
