    (18 March 2014)

    Stuttgart. Sports car manufacturer Porsche will be replacing the engines of all 911 GT3 vehicles of model year 2014. This is the corrective action derived from intensive internal analyses that were initiated in response to two engine fires. Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that engine damage resulted from a loosened screw joint on the connecting rod. The loose connecting rod damaged the crankcase, which in both cases led to leakage of oil which then ignited.

    After becoming aware of the two accident cases, Porsche promptly took action to avoid any risk to customers by advising them to cease using the affected 785 vehicles until further notice and have them picked up by a Porsche Centre. Now, engines with optimised screw fittings will be used in all Porsche 911 GT3 vehicles of model year 2014 – including in those that have not been delivered yet. The relevant Porsche Centres are in direct communication with customers worldwide to discuss the further course of action.

    Porsche points out that no other 911 models or other model series are affected by this action.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 911 GT3 (991)

    Now it only matters how skilled Porsche (and their dealers) are to make the wait for affected customers (especially those who already took delivery of a GT3) acceptable. This is where one can draw the line between a "good" company and a "bad" one. Hopefully Porsche understands this. This is all about reputation and customer confidence now, nothing else. No matter how high the cost.

    ^^^ Many had light oil weepage and drips from the RMS but massive leaks were the exception, not the norm... 

    RMS leakage and coolant fitting failures were just more examples of a complete disregard by Porsche for their customers with fixes so easy yet ignored iteration after iteration... 

    I'm not sure where you studied statistics, but 2 fires in ~800 cars doesn't exactly make it "the norm". It's not like there are any facts available that indicate that all or even most engines are affected. In fact, there's absolutely nothing we know that supports the notion that the problem was caused by design flaws or engineering mistakes as opposed to a quality issue with parts or assembly. What facts we do have -- i.e., that these were very low mileage cars, that the majority of cars, many of which have much greater mileage, have experienced no problems -- point in exactly the opposite direction you indicate.

    The phrase "a complete disregard by Porsche for their customers" also seems unjustified. They communicated with their customers, if not the public at large, chose the best possible solution for the customers (and, again, we don't have facts to indicate they were all even affected) and seem to be doing everything possible to make things right for the owners. Again, that seems the opposite of "complete disregard". If you want an example of what "complete disregard" is, GM's handling of its ignition switch problems fits the bill.

    I think they've handled the situation about as well as possible, despite the attempts of so many to fan the fires of hysteria and prophesy the company's doom.

    Apple is the world's most profitable computer company and the world's most profitable smartphone company, and while they do have some of the lowest manufacturing costs in those industries, that doesn't come from cutting corners; their products have probably the highest build quality in their respective categories.

    2 Launch of GT3 RS likely to be delayed until GT3 engine problems are fully resolved, summer launch no longer likely.

    Hm, I'm not sure but wasn't the GT2 always based on the turbo? I think it's probably easier to increase the power of a turbo (I think in the 997 GT2 RS it was higher pressure and maybe larer intercoolers?) than strap a turbo on the GT3 engine.

    Has anyone an idea what the highest revving turbo-charged engines are out there? I can't imagine that they will make a 9k rpm turbo, that probably isn't going very well :)

    The GT2/RS was always a true dry sump (Mezger) motor, even after the Turbo went to integrated dry sump 9A1.  The highest revving turbo motors currently are the McLarens I think (8,500 rpm)

    Thing is, McLaren is a 3.8 V8, Porsche is a 3.8 flat 6. So pistons are a lot smaller and lighter in the McLaren, easier to rev higher.

    Mullh:

    well, the car is  about 3 seconds slower and has a similar power/weight… and corner speeds only tell half the story (especially in tight turns)… a front-midengine car has to be driven differently to a rear engine car (i.e. carrying more speed through corner vs v. late apex, sharp turn in and applying throttle early on a RR car in tight corners) .. and hence also much higher peak velocity on the straight (slower turn in, earlier on the throttle -> higher speed) …  and as you said, in the more fluent direction changes the GT3 murdered the C7 … and tbh… on a track, where there are about 10 - 12 turns and one only has data of 4 turns - and their low-peak velocity - … well one can't really draw a conclusion out of that alone xD … if we had sector times or at least onboard footage we could look at the corners more closely but we haven't… at the end there is a difference of almost 3 seconds and thats what counts … or look for example at the Carrera S speeds… is the 991S as fast as the Gt3 through corners and in some even a lot quicker? Nope, just these speeds just tell one almost nothing xD

    okay, the tires of the GT3 were better… but the PSS ZP for the Corvette are also not too bad and over a single 1.5 min lap the difference aint 3 seconds… on the other hand the Stingray was quicker than the 3.8 RS (which was on Cups) and that is a great achievement too …

    That is true, but 911 motors are very over-square (the stroke is much shorter than the bore is wide), so piston speeds are not that high, compared to other motors with large cylinders of 633cc).  Mclaren also takes this approach, which is rare for a turbo motor (but its cylinders are only 475cc).

    458 Speciale has set the new standard for redlines though - 9,200 rpm (with much longer stroke than either GT3 or 12C), so really high piston speeds.  Something for the GT3 RS to shoot towards if they want more power from the same 3.8L.

    I am really having a problem with this. 

    I bought a new car and I expect a new car to be delivered to me not one which has had its engine replaced. In my view that is no longer a new car. It left the factory with a substantial defect and for Porsche to say we will fix it and sell it to you as new I have difficulty swallowing. If my car while being loaded fell into the ocean and immediately recover dried out by Porsche would it be right for Porsche to deliver it to me saying it is like new?

    I find that offensive.

    458 Speciale: 9.200 rpm??

    Yep, with a long stroke of 81mm (12C has only 69mm stroke and GT3 is just over 80mm).  GT3 has by far biggest bore which adds to piston mass, but velocity is much more critical than mass as force = mass x velocity squared.

    Smiley EDIT: I am wrong - redline of 458S is also 9k, so piston speeds just a little higher than GT3 (with lighter pistons)...

    RC, I'm pretty sure Porsche's lawyers have far more serious things to contend with than some goofy letter posted on a forum for a laugh amongst owners who are clearly frustrated with their situation and Porsche's silence on the matter... Just saying, not looking to start an argument over it...

    You might be surprised how aggressive companies like Porsche enforce the intellectual property rights.  Additionally, the internal lawyers responsible for policing their trademarks/service marks aren't the ones dealing with dealing with consequent legalities relating to the GT3.

    The Ferrari F12 was a huge temptation for me. For only 50k more, I could have had a monster engine, monster performance and lots more emotions than in the Porsche.

     

    Not more emotions maybe - but different emotions Smiley

    No, definetely more emotions. The F12 sounded better, the interior looked better, the smell, the finish, everything looks much more special (just compare the 991 Turbo S to the Boxster S interior and you understand... Smiley). The engine? I don't even know where to start, amazing. Yes, it is a Ferrari but at some point, in the range above 200k EUR, I have to make a decision. If Porsche doesn't understand that the Turbo/S needs a different interior than the regular Carrera for example, then we already have a problem. Porsche even saves money by using the "Turbo" gearbox lever logo instead of a specific Turbo S logo. How crazy is that on a 200+k car?!

    Please don't misunderstand me: I love my 991 Turbo S and I will keep it until the lease runs out but I'm not sure I will go for the facelift (with another 20-40 hp more...in three years) or choose something completely different. The 960 could be interesting too but since I guess this is going to be a two seater... Smiley

    The whole 911 line got too expensive in my opinion. My dealer has Carrera S Coupes for close to 150k EUR. This is insane. Compared to that, a GT3 almost seems like a bargain. Smiley

    Also, if Porsche introduces these turbo charged Carrera engines, things for the Turbo will look even more grim. Why is this car called "Turbo" again? Smiley Look at what happened with the Panamera after a good first run. They switched the V8 on the 4/S to a turbo charged V6 and sales numbers seem to have... Smiley Is Porsche serious? I would NEVER pay 130k EUR for a Panamera with a turbo charged V6 engine. Even if it had 600 hp. No kidding.

    I could continue on and on but with record sales figures, I doubt Porsche will change anything. So in the end, maybe...MAYBE...I will be forced to move on. Smiley

    ^^^ Many had light oil weepage and drips from the RMS but massive leaks were the exception, not the norm... 

    RMS leakage and coolant fitting failures were just more examples of a complete disregard by Porsche for their customers with fixes so easy yet ignored iteration after iteration... 

    NEWSFLASH!!!

    I used arrows referencing Watt's post about the leaks in previous generations of GT3... When you refuse to fix RMS leaks for 3 models of GT3 and Coolant pipe failures for 4 models of GT3 where simple fixes already existed in the aftermarket, I'd say thats a complete disregard for customers, wouldn't you????

    In the context of the discussion, "were just more examples" clearly implied that the current situation is an example of showing "complete disregard". I disagreed and pointed out why. Apparently you've now changed your mind. That's good.
