Vehicles affected come in the form of 2014 and 2015 model year variants of the Boxster, Cayman and 911. So what’s the actual matter with the hood latch?
Well, Porsche notes that internal quality investigations found that there’s nothing wrong with these vehicles, the locking mechanism of the boot passing current strength requirements. Still, in a typical Germanic way of doing things, Porsche determined that these specific parts may not meet the brand’s quality standards throughout the life cycle of the vehicle.
As it was expected from such a minor fault, no incidents, accidents or injuries have been related to the Porsche recall, nor any instances of an unintentional opening of the front hood. Owners of the US-bound population and the other 3,046 units scattered around the world will be notified in 2 months maximum.
As for the fix, Porsche says the old latch will be replaced by a better mechanism in roughly half an hour.
