Two-hundred and five examples of the Porsche 918 Spyder are being recalled by the manufacturer for chassis components that may be prone to breakage, though no customers have yet reported any related issues.
Not, you know, that this is a recall that actually affects you.
Autoblog reached out to Porsche Director of Corporate Communications Achim Schneider, who told the site that “due to the supplier relationship we did not announce further details regarding the components so far.” So, it’s still a mystery what part of the Porsche 918 Spyder’s chassis is affected. Mr. Schneider also stated that only 43 of the cars affected dwell within North America.
This is the second recall for the Porsche 918 Spyder; the first affected only 50 cars globally, whose rear control arms could potentially break. That recall was also preemptive, as no customers had reported encountering such a breakage.
While any automotive recall obviously raises red flags with regard to the safety and construction of customer cars, in both cases, Porsche seems to be erring on the side of caution, and tracking down possible faults in the Porsche 918 Spyder before they occur.
That’s one of the things that $845,000 buys you.
