2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Tailpipe Recall
March 5, 2013
A recall has been issued for the Porsche 991. Seems the company discovered that the tailpipes of cars with the standard exhaust (but not the sport exhaust) can detach. This was observed in test cars in Porsche's fleet. So far, no reports of incidents in the field.
The recall applies to cars manufactured from March 7, 2012 through November 12, 2012.
As you can see on the doorjamb sticker above, our long-term 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet was manufactured in October. And it is indeed equipped with the standard exhaust.
Looks like we'll be heading to the dealer soon. But not too soon as Porsche told NHTSA it is waiting for sufficient quantities of reinforced rear mufflers to become available before notifying owners to take their cars in for service.
