Porsche 918 Spyder

Porsche 918 Spyder

The Porsche 918 Spyder is an incredible technical achievement. The Hybrid Supercar cost those fortunate enough to purchase one about $1 million, depending on options.

Porsche has issued a recall of all 918 Spyders because of a possible problem with the seat belts. The issue has to do with screws possibly being put in the wrong location because of an error in the original parts catalog. The German performance car maker will be checking each car to guarantee that safety is not compromised.

below is the statement by Porsche about the recall details.

The original parts catalog for the 918 Spyder inadvertently transposed the locations for the screws which respectively secure the seat belt mount and the belt reel mount. These screws are one-time-use only and are not the same. We cannot rule out the possibility that, due to the mistake in the catalog, technicians who had to work on those components might have been led to install the wrong screw in the wrong location. In that event, the function of the seat belt system could possibly be impaired in the event of an accident. To prevent this risk, the fastening screws on the seat belt mount and on the belt reel on all 918 Spyder vehicles will be checked. Depending upon the result of the check, Porsche might replace the screws on some vehicles. In an abundance of caution, Porsche is treating this as a safety-related recall and will make contact with all owners. The mistake in the parts catalog already has been corrected.
