RecommendedPorsche 911 GT3 recalled, finally!
Porsche engineers have found the fault that caused those deadly fires on the 911 GT3, over the last few months. The cause is a loosened piston-rod screw that made major damage to the engine crankcase at high RPM. The company is working at a solution and has stated that it will replace the engines of all affected vehicles once the testing phase is concluded.
“At Porsche, we are rigorous when implementing an engineering solution- therefore, after successful testing and validation, we will be installing new engines with optimized piston-rod screw connections in all 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 vehicles"- said the company's senior officials in a press meet.
Porsche 911 GT3 is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine that produces 469 BHP. Last month, a total of five Porsche 911 GT3s caught fire, said to be due to engine failure. This made the company announce a recall for 785 units of the GT3, which were sold last year. Porsche also instructed owners to stop using the car immediately till the issue is not resolved.
