Porsche is planning on stopping deliveries of the 911 GT3 for several months because the fire risk is still there and the company doesn’t want to take a chance.
Just a month ago, we were telling you that Porsche has stopped producing the new 911 GT3 because of some problems with fire and now, a month later, the German based automaker still hasn’t found a solution for its problem. The next step is apparently to stop deliveries of the sports car until the fire risk issue will be fixed. The announcement has been made by a Porsche spokesman, for news.drive.com.au.
Porsche has already recorded five fires of the 911 GT3 over the past few weeks and one of these incidents was also presented by our website, as such a sports car has caught fire in Switzerland. The Porsche 911 GT3 has a 3.8 liter boxer engine under its hood, which is producing a total output of 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.5 seconds, thanks to the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, and top speed stands at 315 km/h (195 mph).
