NHTSA Investigates 911 Coolant Leaks

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is going to take a look at the 2001-2007 Porsche 911 to find out why it’s GT1 engine is suddenly losing all its coolant and shutting down. I should say allegedly, but try telling this guy that it’s not real:

One Porsche owner said their vehicle took on a mind of its own when hot antifreeze leaked and covered the road and rear tires. The vehicle went out of control and traveled off the road.

The most likely source for a sudden leak that fast would be a coolant hose fitting disconnecting from the engine block.
