APRIL 2010 -- Porsche has notified NHTSA of a defect in certain model year 2010 Panamera S, 4S and Turbo 4-door sedan. If the front seats are adjusted towards an extreme position, resulting in unfavorable tolerance of the mating components, it is possible that the function of the locking mechanism of the seat belt mount can no longer be guaranteed. The seat belt mount could detach from the anchoring system when the seat belt is fastened or opened. In the event of a crash, the seat belt may not provide adequate protection for the seat occupant, which may increase the risk of injury or death. Dealers will have an additional locking element installed on the seat belt anchoring system for both front seats. This service will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule.  10V-141

MARCH 2010 - Porsche has notified NHTSA of a defect in certain model year 2011 Boxster Spyder 2 door convertible passenger vehicles. It is possible that the locking hook on the sun shield (temporary soft top) may not engage correctly into the lock catch which is positioned on the windscreen frame of the vehicle. If the sun shield is not fully locked, the sun shield can open when travelling at higher speeds increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will have both the locking hook and lock catch replaced with redesigned components. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during April 2010.   10V-125

DECEMBER 2007 -- Porsche is recalling 37 MY 2008 911 GT3 and GT3RS 2-door coupe vehicles. The switch console for the Porsche active suspension management (PASM) and the traction control (TC-OFF) switches was inappropriately installed. The LEDs in the switches can signal a functional change in the PASM mode or the deactivation of traction control even though the switches are not actuated. If the traction control or active stability management system are inadvertently disabled, and the subsequent warning lamp illumination in the instrument panel onboard computer is unnoticed by the driver, the safety benefits of these systems would be unavailable to the driver which could increase the possibility of a crash during aggressive driving maneuvers. Dealers will replace the switch console. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. 07V-557

Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire. Dealers will reroute the fuel line and install an additional spacer ring free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2008. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243. 08V-076
