We’ve all seen the images of some of the best cars in the world go up in flames, along with the more recent Tesla Model S issues where they had burst into flames following different incidents. However, it’s not very often that we see the likes of a German vehicle catch fire, but this is just what has happened to a few 911 GT3 coupes.
There is now a fear of a 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 recall since Porsche has come to the decision to stop sales of the new 911 GT3 until they have carried out an investigation as to the cause of these fires.
We cannot remember the last time that Porsche issued a recall for one of their vehicles, and so the likelihood of one happening following these incidents are very unlikely, although there is always the risk seeing as though it’s a very serious issue.
For those who currently own a 911 GT3 our source would suggest that you take things a little easier because we know how you like to use this 475 horsepower vehicle to the max while on a race track of course.
One of the signs to look out for is a warning light will appear for your oil pressure, and within seconds the car could catch fire.
There seems to be a worrying trend where more vehicles seem to be bursting into flames, making us wonder whether engines and gearboxes are being taken to the limits and only kept under control by software?
Again, we would just like to remind you not to thrash the life out of your 911 GT3, just until Porsche make an announcement as to what the cause of these fires are.
