Porsche’s 2015 918 Spyder Recall

The super exclusive and quick Porsche 918 Spyder is being recalled because of potential suspension cracking which is an issue that has prompted 3 previous recalls in the U.S. alone.

This recall affects 305 units from the 2015 model year, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its website this Saturday. The control-arm connecting shafts in the front and rear suspension may fail due to stress corrosion cracks, the regulator said. Porsche AG and its dealers will replace these parts with more stronger versions, and the work will require seven to eight hours to complete.

Porsche told the agency it would conduct the recall even though it found only one instance of damage and the issue would affect handling in “severe, race track type use only,” according to the notice.

It is the 6th time the 2015 model has been recalled, according to NHTSA records. Suspension cracking or fractures were cited three times previously. Others were due to possible seat-belt failures from incorrect bolts and potential short circuits in wiring.
