ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Porsche has announced a recall for several of its models. The recall affects 2011-2012 Porsche Boxster, 911, and Cayman models. The specific models recalled are the 2011 911 Speedster and GTS RS 4.0, the 911 Carrera, 911 Targa 4 and 4S, Targa, 911 Turbo and Turbo S, the 2012 Boxster S and Spyder, and the Cayman S and R. According to Porsche and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), only 235 vehicles are affected by the recall.

The sports car's seatbelt anchor plate could potentially malfunction during a crash, leading to serious injuries for drivers and passengers. According to the recall, there is a possibility that the mounting holes in anchor plate are too small. This could prevent the anchor plate from properly rotating in the event of a sudden impact. If this were to happen, the driver and passenger could be seriously injured because the seatbelt will not properly rotate around the driver.

Owners of qualifying models should take their vehicle to the nearest Porsche service center as soon as possible. Porsche has not indicated whether anyone has been injured as a result of this malfunction, but given the serious nature of the recall, owners are encouraged to contact Porsche immediately. If necessary, the seatbelts will be repaired free of charge.
