After a month-long controversy surrounding a certain issue involving Porsche 911 GT3s catching fire, engineers from Stuggart seem to be nearing a final diagnosis and solution for some rather unfortunate GT3 owners. A few weeks ago, the German brand had issued a model recall of the track-ready 911, stating that any owners of GT3s cease operation and leave the vehicle parked until Porsche technicians retrieve the car for emergency repair at the nearest dealership.
The 785-vehicle recall was sparked into action (no pun intended) after five reported and two confirmed fiery incidents which ignited 2014 Porsche 911 GT3s into flames. Thankfully there were no injuries.
Porsche CEO Matthias Müller stated in a recent interview with Bloomberg, “We know the reason and the problem-solving measures. We’re testing them.” Though that comments is rather vague at the moment, it does suggest that owners are one step closer to finally taking to the streets in their beloved babies sometime in the near future.
