Porsche is recalling almost 100 sports cars worldwide. The seat belt anchorages on the Porsche 911 GT3 may not have been correctly fastened.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the car manufacturer Porsche have launched a recall campaign for the 911 GT3 in the USA. Currently, 15 vehicles are affected in the USA. Around 20 vehicles are said to be affected in Germany and less than 100 worldwide. ,
Due to an discrepancy in the assembly process, which has since been corrected, some of the recalled vehicles equipped with optional bucket seats may not have the bolt that secures the lower seat belt anchorage to the seat frame to the specified torque. If the lower seat belt anchorage screw loosens in a crash, the seat belt anchorage could detach from the seat, increasing the risk of injury. In some cases, the harness attachment bolt connection may squeak, loosen, or rattle.
This model is particularly affected by the recall in the USA: Porsche 911 GT3 from the production period 14.07.2021 to 31.05.2022 (15 vehicles)
(worldwide: under 100 vehicles; USA: 15 vehicles; Germany: approx. 20 vehicles)
The affected screws will be replaced and tightened according to the specifications. If the thread is damaged, the seat frame will also be replaced. The recall can be found at NHTSA under case number 22V-803. The KBA has not yet received a recall – but will follow.
Porsche has to make improvements to almost 100 Porsche 911 GT3 vehicles worldwide. In the affected vehicles, screw connections for the seat belt attachments may not have been correctly fastened.
