After no less than five units of the brand new Porsche 911 GT3 went up in flames for unknown reasons, the German luxury sportscar maker has finally issued a recall for the model. The entire 991 generation of the GT3 vehicles are currently being asked to come back to Porsche showrooms so that the company can find out what’s wrong with them. A total of 785 units of the 911 GT3 have been affected by the said recall worldwide. Porsche says that the decision to recall was made after two fire incidents were reported in Europe, which resulted due to engine failure and these are said to have occurred in Italy and in Switzerland. Thankfully, no loss of life or injury has been reported related to the issue. 

The German automaker reportedly, has also been advising owners not to use their 911 GTS sportscar until it’s engineers have tracked down the cause of the problem and fixed it. Furthermore, it is also understood that Porsche has now officially stopped the deliveries of its most expensive version of the 911 post the aforementioned fire incidents. With a starting price of 137,000 euros a piece, the 911 GT3 was delivered to 322 customers this year alone. Porsche said that the company officials are expected to reach final conclusions on the investigation by the end of this week.
