The German automobile manufacturer has now announced a recall of their 911, Boxster and Cayman sport vehicles. There are over 4,428 vehicles that will be recalled by the manufacturer. The issue with these vehicles is a faulty boot panel.

Porsche models built for 2014 and 2015 are in question. They claim this to be a precautionary recall and has been initiated by the manufacturer itself. The German manufacturer will be replacing affected parts for free.

The problem lies with a potential faulty lock bracket, which is meant for front boot. Porsche claim that the component meets the required strength, however, it does not meet the high quality standard of Porsche.

Currently there are no reports of any accidents caused due to the fault boot lock. The German manufacturer will personally call each owner and inform them. Owners will then have to take their vehicles to the closest dealer. The repair should not take more than half an hour and it will be done free of cost.
