Industry News
So you have just bought your brand new shiny Porsche 918 Spyder, an advanced plug-in hybrid supercar, only to get a message from Porsche HQ saying you can’t drive it and that it needs to be sent back to the factory. That’s exactly what Porsche are doing right now they are recalling all 918 Spyder’s that were sold before the end of April 2015, that includes 28 sold in Switzerland, 76 sold in Germany and the 223 sold in America. Porsche have issued the recall citing a carbon fiber part could damage the cooling system. Its not clear what part is the cause of the recall although if the cooling system is compromised you can expect the 918 to light up light a fireball. This isn’t the first time Porsche has issued a recall for the 918 Spyder, the first time was back in 2014 to check for defective parts. Of the latest recall Porsche released a statement saying, “The cause was identified following a detailed examination of inquiries. Corrective measures have subsequently been taken in manufacturing.”  Porsche-918-Spyder
