It looks like 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 drivers might actually get to drive their cars again soon. Reports of fires affecting the track-ready Germans first began about a month ago. Then, a few days later, the automaker confirmed two of the five alleged blazes and said owners shouldn't drive their cars until further notice. Porsche then went so far as to offer to pick up the GT3s and transport them to the nearest dealer until the problem was identified and a fix was found. Finally, there appears to be a repair.

"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.
