Porsche has recalled more than 1,200 of its 911 Carrera S sports cars because a fuel line can come loose and cause a fire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website that the line can come apart at a connection and leak fuel. According to NHTSA, that could cause loss of power and a crash, or it could cause a fire. Porsche says it doesn’t know of any fires or accidents.
The 2012 cars have a starting price of more than $96,000. Porsche says the problem happens because a coolant pipe can touch a connection on the fuel line and loosen it. Dealers will either replace the fuel line or make sure the connections are tight. They will also install a spacer to keep the lines apart. The recall was expected to begin this month.
