The words ‘Porsche’ and ‘Recall’ don’t come together very often, but there is apparently an issue, and a rather serious one, with the Porsche 991. Porsche has already issued a recall of 1,232 new Porsche 911s manufactured between October 26th, 2011 through January 24, 2012 to fix a possible fuel line failure which may even cause a fire.
Here’s the skinny: in the aforementioned models there might be interference between a coolant line and a fuel line, which may cause the latter to be disconnected from its connector. If the fuel line gets disconnected, it will cause the engine to stall, which is not safe while you are on the move. More importantly, the disconnection results in a fuel leak, which increases the risk of a fire.
2012 Porsche 911 owners in America are asked to call Porsche at 1-800-767-7243 to schedule an appointment for the fix.
