Porsche AG has recalled 887 sports cars worldwide, including 235 in the U.S., for a seat-belt flaw that may cause the belts to be too loose and not protect occupants. About 10% of the cars, which are two-door coupes made from May 31 to June 10, contain the defect, according to the NHTSA’s website.
Porsche says the defect is “due to a supplier’s short-term manufacturing problem” and no accidents or injuries have been caused by it. The company says it will examine the seat-belt mounts and replace seat belts if necessary. The mounting holes for seat-belt anchor plates may be too small, meaning the plate may not rotate around the fastening bolt as designed when tightening the belt, according to Porsche. The 2011 model-year cars in the recall are the GT3 RS and 911 Speedsters. The 2012 model-year vehicles are 911 Carreras, 911 Targas, 911 Turbos, Boxsters and Caymans. As you may know, Porsche is being integrated into Volkswagen AG as part of a merger with parent company Porsche SE.
