The German based automaker Porsche has apparently stopped delivering the new 911 GT3 after five vehicles have caught fire, for no obvious reason, in the recent weeks.
Porsche’s delivery of the 911 GT3 being stopped hasn’t been officially announced by the company and it’s in fact part of a report, which is quoting a source close to the automaker. According to the guys at blog.axisofoversteer.com, the Porsche 911 GT3 sports cars aren’t being delivered anymore because of five recorded fires which took place over the past few weeks. The latest incident took place in Wilerstrasse, Switzerland, and you can see it over here.
Deliveries of the new Porsche 911 GT3 will be halted until the company will figure it out what’s wrong with the sports cars. As a small reminder, the new Porsche 911 GT3 is coming with a 3.8 liter boxer engine, which is producing a total output of 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph).
