The manufacturer says it’s a precautionary measure after in-house quality inspections identified a bad batch of parts, “whose functionality cannot be guaranteed”.
It stresses that no complaints have been made by customers, nor have any parts actually broken.
The Porsche 918 owners affected have been contacted by their dealerships, who will arrange a workshop visit in 2015.
The change is expected to take two days, and will be done free of charge.
A Porsche Cars GB spokesman told us that only a few cars in the UK were affected “and their customers have already been contacted”.
Porsche revealed at the 2014 LA Motor Show that its production run of 918 models had sold out.
“We closed the order books for the 918 Spyder a few days ago,” board member for sales and marketing Bernhard Maier announced in LA.
“All are now sold out – and we’re able to confirm that of the 918 cars built, 297 of them are US-bound.”
