MARCH 2012 --  Porsche is recalling certain model year 2012,  911 Carrera S vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2011, through January 24, 2012. Interference between a coolant line and a fuel line may cause the fuel line to become disconnected at the quick connector. If the fuel line becomes disconnected, a fuel leak may occur. A fuel leak could lead to the engine misfiring or stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could increase the risk of a fire. Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel line with a new fuel line, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in April 2012. Owners may contact Porsche at 1-800-767-7243. Porsche's safety recall number is ac02. Customers may contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.Safercar.Gov.  12V-107

AUGUST 2011 -- Porsche is recalling certain model year 2011 911 Speedster and 911 GTS RS 4.0; and model year 2012 Boxster (including S and Spyder); Cayman (including S and R); 911 Carrera (including S, GTS, 4, 4S, and 4 GTS); 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S; and 911 Turbo and Turbo S models manufactured from May 31, 2011, through June 10, 2011. There is a possibility that the mounting holes in the seat belt anchor plates fitted to the vehicle are too small. If the hole diameter is too small, the anchor plate may not be able to rotate about the fastening bolt as designed. Should this occur, the seat belt may not be routed optimally around the occupant, or may potentially loosen at some point in the future, increasing the risk of injury during a crash. Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt anchors and, if necessary, replace the seat belt. The repairs will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2011.   Porsche's safety recall number is AB02. 11V-409

JUNE 2011 -- Porsche is recalling certain model year 2010-2011, 911 Turbo; Turbo S, 911 GT3, GT3 RS and GT2 RS high performance vehicles, manufactured from May 18, 2009 through September 17, 2010, and equipped with center locking hub and wheel assemblies. Over time the hubs can wear prematurely. As the hubs wear, the wheels could loosen, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the central locking hubs and wheels with an improved design, free of charge. The safety recall began on June 28, 2011.   11V-285

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
