Porsche GT3 Buyers Unhappy with Recall Compensation

Would an extra year’s warranty on a burning car please you?

While Porsche seems to be working hard to fix theengine-fire problem in its 2014 911 GT3, it has also been forced recallall delivered units and halt deliveries of pre-ordered models. And with wealthybuyers clamoring to get their $130,000-plus cars, and quick, the company isdoing everything it can to deal with the issue. According to aletter sent by the company to GT3 owners and posted on Rennlist Forums, Porscheis offering owners $2,000 per month for delayed deliveries.

In addition, the company is planning to extend the car’s warrantyby 12 months or 100,000 miles beyond the original expiry date or mileage. Someowners, however, are unsatisfied with this offer, with several stating explicitlythat they would expect the company to do more. But as compared to some othermanufacturers out there, it looks like Porsche is doing the right thing notonly by trying to fix the problem, but also by acknowledging it and doing theirbest to compensate buyers.
