More Than 200 Porsche 918 Spyders Recalled

Written By:

Porsche is recalling 205 units of its latest sensation, the 918 Spyder, due to defective chassis parts. The recall follows the announcement made in September, when 45 cars were identified with a problem with its rear axle control arm.

Specific details about the defective chassis has not been revealed by Porsche, but the company has confirmed the recall, saying it is a precautionary step.

The German luxury carmaker initially found the trouble during in-house testing, and no complaints from customers have come yet.

The affected Porsche 918 Spyders will have the chassis trouble rectified in two days time, which will begin early next year.

The Porsche 918 Spyder comes with a mid-mounted 4.6-litre, V8 engine that produces 608 horsepower, which is the highest power output of any naturally aspirated Porsche engine.

The V8 engine is further powered by two electric motors, which boost the cars overall performance figure to
887 horsepower. This massive powerhouse, or rather powerhouses are connected to a 7-speed gearbox.

Porsche, has already managed to sell out the car completely.
