It isn’t about the risk of burning to crisp; they want money.
It may seem logical for Porsche 911 GT3 owners to bemad at the automaker for a host of reasons, for instance, the fact that they ran the risk of going up in flames along with their carsduring the engine-fire debacle. But for a growing group of now-organized ownersin the UK, it’s less about safety, and more about cash. Apparently, thecompensation packages offered to owners by the automaker in most markets aroundthe world haven’t quite made it across the Channel.
While Porsche has offered up to $2,000 to American owners forevery month their car cannot be driven (Germans get 175 euros per day), ownersin the UK have gotten nothing. And they’re still being required to make their carpayments while Porsche scrambles to find a solution and replace the engines. Led by a customer named Sunil Mehra, all 30-35 UK owners have now organized,demanding that Porsche reimburse the group, which consists of existing owners, thosewhose production has been suspended and those who had placed deposits but neverreceived a build allocation.
