Porsche Recalls 918 Spyder for Wiring Woes

Bad news for Porsche 918 Spyder owners :
Porsche is recalling a bunch of the
quickest-ever production hypercars for a
wiring problem affecting vehicles
manufactured up until April of this year.
Alert every 918 owner you know( I'm sure there is a few of'em in Nigeria).
The problem has to do with the electric
wiring harness for one of the car’s many
radiator fans, which can chafe up against
a carbon-fiber component in certain
cases. Porsche says the fix will involve
rerouting the wiring harness, and the
production line has been updated with
the fix so it shouldn’t affect the car from
this point forward.
Porsche says the recall affects 223 vehicles
in the U.S., and diagnosis and repair will
take about a half a day. Somehow, we
imagine most owners of the $850,000
machine have a second car to drive while
their hybrid screamers are in the shop.
