Porsche will be replacing engines on approximately two hundred 2014 911 GT3 coupes after reports of two fires. One fire occurred on February 5, 2014 in Switzerland and the second on February 8, 2014, in Italy. Owners are advised not to drive their vehicles until the engine has been replaced.

According to reports filed with the NHTSA, a gap in the engine crankcase could develop because of loosening piston rod screws. This gap could allow oil to leak from the crankcase onto a hot engine surface and result in a subsequent engine fire.

Porsche will be notifying owners once a notification schedule has been determined and dealers will install a new engine with improved piston connecting rod connections. Owners wanting more information about the problem can contact Porsche at 1-800-545-8039. Porsche’s recall number is AE01 and the NHTSA campaign number is 14V-090.
