Porsche Recalls Selected 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S Models for Exhaust Pipe Tip Replacement

ATLANTA, Jan. 11, 2006 -- Porsche today announced a recall of certain Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S sports cars for potentially defective exhaust pipe tips. The recall involves those cars built between April 20, 2004, and October 21, 2005, 5,385 of which were sold in the United States and Canada.

On these cars, it has been discovered that the exhaust pipe tips fitted to the tailpipes might have inadequate welding seams between the fastening clamp and the tailpipe itself. Should these welding seams fail, the tips can vibrate lose from the tailpipe and fall off. To date, approximately 30 instances of this occurrence have been reported worldwide.

Owners of these potentially affected 911s will be informed shortly to take their cars to an authorized Porsche dealer where new exhaust tips with improved welding seams will be installed at no charge.
