It appears that Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Tesla aren't the only companies that seem to have issues with cars self immolating.
According to word on the street, the Porsche 911 (991) GT3's deliveries have been halted until an investigation on the vehicle has been completed.
GTspirit is saying that "no less than five cars" have caught fire and that this is the result after the vehicle prompts the driver with a low oil pressure message. In addition, one vehicle only had 60 kms on its odometer.
As of now there's no official word on the vehicle's deliveries and if they're taking place. There's only an unsourced claim and according to GTspirit Porsche said they are "investigating the case," and it will "inform customers and the public" ASAP when results are found.
