First, let me correct myself: problem.
It was only weeks ago we brought you the first reports of a potential fire hazard with all-new 2014 911 GT3s. Well, soon thereafter the cars' deliveries were being halted and owners were told to phone their dealers so the cars could be transported to dealers — I am assuming via flatbed.
Considering Porsche's cars typically are pretty solid, it's interesting to see how the company handles major problems like this. Do you think Ferrari or Lamborghini would do this?
I have yet to see THAT happen.
The latest word from Stuttgart is contradictory to earlier claims this weekend. It turns out the company is currently testing the fix on the GT3, which means the ban will likely be lifted in relatively short order.
“We know the reason and the problem-solving measures,” Chief Executive Officer Matthias Mueller said today at a press conference near company headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. “We’re testing them.” Porsche plans to announce the technical solution “shortly” and will first inform customers, he said.
