Porsche 918 Recalled for Faulty Rear Control Arm

 at Porsche 918 Recalled for Faulty Rear Control Arm

Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid hyper car is an immensely complex piece of kit with lots of computers and electronics, each of which prone to go wrong in one or other. But turns out the first issue with this technologically-advanced car is a mechanical one.

The problem is with a faulty rear control arm in some American Porsche 918 models which is not up to the job, apparently, and might break. It is not a very dangerous fault, but if the control arm lets go the car’s handling might be compromised, and that’s a bit of an issue in a million-dollar, 886 horsepower hyper car.

Porsche, of course, has announced a recall, and lucky for them only five cars are affected with the problem. That is one of the perks of limited editions. Still, we can’t help but think if Porsche is dropping the ball on quality. They used to be a byword for reliability, but in recent years that hasn’t really been the case. The memory of those fiery GT3s is still burning quite vividly in our memories.
