Porsche 918 Spyder Recalled Over Suspension Issue

Written By:

Most of the recalls we see today are generally for mass-market vehicles. But this is an exceptional case, this is an exotic supercar of the highest order and it has some build quality issues.

The recalled supercar is the Porsche 918 Spyder, a hybrid hypercar which is pitted against the likes of McLaren P1 and the LaFerrari. The vehicle needs no introduction to the car fanatics.

The 918 Spyder is powered by a 4.6-litre V8 engine and a pair of electric motors delivering a massive 887bhp of power. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

The car can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 2.5 seconds and has the capability to lap the Nurburgring race circuit in less than seven minutes which is a phenomenal lap time.

Porsche has built 918 examples of the hypercar, with 306 units have been recalled, the entire lot is sold in the United States, which is the key market for Porsche for its exotic cars.

The reason for this recall is the issue with the front suspension. As per the notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the lower control arms of the front suspension are subjected to crack, so Porsche will replace the whole component.

This is not the first time that 918 Spyder has been recalled. In 2014, the car was recalled for unspecified chassis components, in 2015 another recall was announced for wiring glitch and in 2016 a seatbelt issue resulted in another recall.
