According to What Car?, Porsche isn't immune to the recall woes that normally plague much larger automakers. The article states that 43 911 GT3s and their harder-core RS siblings are suffering from faulty seatbelts. The optional six-point belt's unlocking mechanism apparently won't come loose, causing concerns that if a crash were to take place, the occupants wouldn't be able to escape the vehicle without the belts being cut.

Porsche will be contacting the owners of said 911s to arrange a date for inspection. Unfortunately, the website What Car? referred to for further information, the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), didn't have any details about what specific models were affected and in what part of the world the vehicles were sold. As soon as we get more information, we'll update this post.

      Oh, the world is coming to an end. Another import car maker suffering the ravages of a recall. What next? I think the sun is about to explode and wipe out all life on Earth.

      The Cayenne had the same issue when it first came out! I remember I had to take mine in for service, and it was just a change in seat buckles which took less than an hour! It should be all good..

      It's not a fault, who in their right minds would ever want to get out of the car in the first place?

      I wouldn't be suprised if a mere one car suffered this problem. Porsche has recalled their cars before to fix various problem. It happens, either through poor workmanship or through poor design. Either way, I'd rather have any car company recall early to fix the problem rather than wait for a few hundred cars to suffer the fate.

      "I wouldn't be suprised if a mere one car suffered this problem"

      nice facts...


      "rather than wait for a few hundred cars to suffer the fate"
      Ummm... there are not that many of these to begin with. As a percentage of total production, it is higher than the 'others' you refer to.
