Issue with Porsche Carrera GT Leads to Recall

Porsche is recalling its Carrera GT supercars produced between 2004 and 2005 due to a problem with the suspension.

The company stated that the suspension joints in the Carrera GT could potentially fail because of mechanical stress and corrosion. About 489 out of the 1,300 cars made are impacted by this issue.

“It was recently found that the spherical joints connecting the wishbone suspension parts on the front and rear axles in the affected Carrera GT cars do not meet Porsche’s durability expectations,” the notice explained. “The material used (X46Cr13) is not sufficiently resistant to stress corrosion between grains when exposed to salt and mechanical stress over time. This could lead to cracks or fractures in the joints, and possibly the wishbone itself.”

The manufacturer mentioned that owners might detect vibrations or noises from deteriorating joints before they break. However, this warning may not be enough to predict a potential failure, so owners are being urged to have their Carrera GT vehicles examined.
