11 recalls for 7 Porsche models in 2019


In 2019, Porsche announced 11 recalls involving 7 models through the EU Rapex system. The 911 and Cayman (5) were the most recalled models.


We’ve sorted all 2019 recalls according to the model into a table below.

In February 2019, the “AH11” recall was announced because of the possibility that the 991 Carrera, Cayenne, Macan and Panamera models from the years 2014 -2015 do not meet the series standards applicable at the time of delivery. Certain systems and assemblies (e.g. seats, front axle control arm bolts, brake components) might be unsafe. It reminds us the Volkswagen’s story, who accidentally sold thousands of pre-production cars that were not supposed to reach the market – read more here.



The other two recalls concerned the powertrain and chassis components. With the Cayenne model from the end of 2018, the shock absorber forks on the front axle may be defective and might break. With the Spyder, Cayman and 911 models produced in the first quarter of 2019, the nuts connecting the driveshaft to the wheel hub may not have been tightened properly.

Panamera had four recalls. The problem could be, among the other things, with the short circuit in the air-conditioning control system or power steering software.

We’ve written about some problems in more detail in separate articles.
