Editor's Overview

Porsche continues the serial updating of its unique and wondrous 911 sports car; for 2013, the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 models migrate to the new platform introduced last year on the rear-drive Carrera. This seventh-generation architecture refines the 911's signature rear-engine layout, with a longer wheelbase, improved roadholding, new technology and better fuel efficiency.

Engine And Engine Cooling Feb 22, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 22, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V058000
Summary:
Porsche is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 vehicles manufactured from March 7, 2012, through November 12, 2012, and equipped with a standard (not sport) exhaust system. The exhaust tail pipe may fracture and separate from the rear muffler.
Consequence:
If the exhaust tail pipe separates from the muffler it may become a hazard for other vehicles on the road, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear mufflers free of charge. An interim notice was mailed to owners on May 9, 2013. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243.
