This particular defect was discovered by the carmaker while conducting an in-house quality test. The owners of the Porsche 918 Spyder will be personally contacted by the company representatives to get the repairs done. They will be asked to fix an appointment with the workshop and the repair will be carried out in around two days. The process of recall will be carried out from 2015.
This is the second recall faced by Porsche 918 Spyder this year. The previous one was carried out in early 2014, when 46 units were called back by the company to address a possible issue with the rear axle, which faced the threat of breaking under extreme racing conditions. Even this recall was carried out as a precautionary measure.
Being the most expensive car of the company’s line-up, Porsche only manufactured 918 units of the the 918 Spyder thus highlighting the exclusivity of the brand and the vehicle and every last unit has been sold out. The 918th Porsche 918 Spyder was sold last month.
