Porsche 911 cars with the GT1 engine might suddenly lose all their coolant and shut down, just don’t expect a recall for it. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which opened an investigation last year says Porsche has fixed the problem.
“Porsche submitted reports suggesting a problem with the adhesive used to attach coolant pipes in about 6,800 model year 2007-2008 Porsche 911 cars. The problem was fixed by the supplier and according to NHTSA, the initial problem wasn’t as bad as first thought.”
NHTSA said no injuries or crashes were caused by coolant leaks and since they only order recalls for safety-related issues, it’s no surprise the investigation was closed. Disappointing? Yes. Predictable? Also yes.
