All Porsche 918 Spyder models delivered all over the world have been recalled by the company for s workshop inspection. The problem is with a bit of electric wiring in the radiator fan which could be damaged by a carbon fiber component.
It is not a serious problem, seemingly, but if the wiring goes bust the radiator fan will stop working and that is not ideal when you have a weapons-grade V8 under the bonnet, especially with the summer coming. Porsche became aware of the problem following a number of complaints by customers, and identified he electric wiring harness for the radiator fan as the culprit.
All Porsche 918 Spyder vehicles manufactured up until the end of April 2015 and delivered, which include 223 units int the United States and 47 in the United Kingdom, are affected by the issue. The owners of the affected vehicles are being contacted by Porsche dealers who will arrange for them an appointment for the fix. It’s going to be free of charge and will take half a day.
The 918 is not the only hyper car suffering from reliability issues. A while back Ferrari issued a recall, rather quietly, for all LaFerraris delivered to customer over what turned out to be a fire hazard. So yea, Porsche’s wiring issue does not seem that bad, after all!
