Porsche Recalls 5,500 Carreras Over Exhaust Problems

March 4, 2013

German luxury sports car maker Porsche on Monday launched a worldwide recall of 5,500 Carreras because of exhaust problems.

The cars at the centre of the recall were built between November 2011 and November 2012, a spokesman for the Stuttgart-based carmaker said.

Vehicle tests showed that after clocking up between 40,000 to 100,000 kilometres a crack appeared on the exhaust. This could lead to rust and the tailpipes falling off the vehicle.

Half the cars affected have been sold in Porsche's key US market. The Porsche spokesman declined to comment on the cost of the recall.
