The Porsche Taycan electric four-door sedan has hit a service campaign for the first time alongside some 911, Cayman and Boxster models. Dealers and owners will receive legal notice on May 9, 2021.
In an official document, NHTSA notes that “a loose threaded connection can cause the corresponding suspension component to move beyond its intended position.” If the connection fails, drivers will experience “sudden loss of stability and control”, risking an accident.
The review applies to the entire 2021 Taycan family, including the base model, 4S, Turbo and Turbo S. It also affects the 2021 911 Carrera Coupes and Convertibles, S, 4S, Turbo and Turbo S as well as the 4S Targa and 4S Targa Heritage Design Edition. The same review applies to the 2021 Cayman, Cayman T, Cayman S, Cayman GT4, 718 Spyder and Boxster models.
Despite the fact that almost the entire range of Porsche sports cars of 2021 is covered, the recall applies only to 396 vehicles, the owners of which will have to hand them over to the dealer for a free repair, which will consist of replacing the threaded connections and correctly tightening new nuts and bolt. Technicians will then check the surrounding components for possible damage and, if necessary, replace defective parts.
