13,500 units affected worldwide

Porsche is recalling 13,500 units of the Cayenne and Panamera manufactured between March 2011 until May 2012 to fix a fuel-seal problem that may allow fuel to evaporate.

Affected units are the 3-liter V6 engine versions and the hybrids as well.

The problem stems from a leaking seal in the fuel injection system that could allow fuel to evaporate creating the risk of fumes igniting and causing fire, although no such cases have been reported yet.

This comes right at the heels of one of the world’s smallest recalls as Porsche requested back 2 units of the 2015 Cayenne for servicing.
