Porsche close to fix for 911 GT3 engine fires [UPDATE]
"We know the reason and the problem-solving measures. We're testing them," said Porsche CEO Matthias Müller to Bloomberg. The technical fix will be released to owners shortly.
The recall affects all 785 GT3s that have been sold so far, but there have been no reported injuries caused by the fires. When it first announced the safety campaign, Porsche said: "Internal studies to determine the cause of the engine damage have not been completed yet."
With winter rapidly turning in spring, hopefully Porsche can fix these road-legal racecars in time for drivers to enjoy the nicer weather.
UPDATE: According to AutoGuide, speaking to Porsche spokesperson Nick Twork, the company will put new engines in all of the affected 785 cars. "We will be replacing the engines in each of the 911 GT3s that have been built thus far," Twork told the publication. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available, and head over to AutoGuide for the full followup.
