Recall: No. 8 of 17
Recall Ref: R/2012/156
Exact Model: 911 GT3 (997)
Description: REAR HUB MAY DETACH
VIN: WP0ZZZ99ZAS780067 to WP0ZZZ99ZAS781223
Build Date:
Numbers: 79
Defect: Current market observations have shown that the track usage of many vehicles in the 911 model line now comes close to that of pure GT3 racing vehicles. The component stresses associated with race track use and competitive driving are much higher than for a sporty driving style on public roads. The revision intervals for race track use must be observed, particularly for highly stressed chassis components, in the same way as is required for GT3 racing vehicles. If these revision intervals are not observed the failure of highly stressed components and breakage of hubs on the rear axle, for example, cannot be ruled out, particularly in the case of components in advanced stages of wear.
Action: In order to standardise revision intervals, the wheel hubs on the rear axle will be replaced by standard wheel hubs on the affected vehicles with central wheel lock
Launch Date: 10 December 2012
   
Recall: No. 9 of 17
Recall Ref: R/2011/133
Exact Model: 911 Turbo, Turbo S, GT3, GT3 RS and GT2 RS
Description: WHEEL MAY DETACH
VIN:
Build Date:
Numbers: 429
Defect: At a recent 24 hour race at the Nurburgring Circuit, it was identified that the clamping force/torque on the centre wheel locking components is incorrect. If the vehicle is used under racing type conditions, it is possible that the centre locking device could undo, which if not identified, could lead to a wheel detachment.
Action: Recall all the affected vehicles to check the centre locking components and replace them if required.
Launch Date: 09 May 2011
