Porsche stops deliveries of 911 (991) GT3 as investigation continues

Article by Christian A., on February 21, 2014

Porsche has halted deliveries of the 911 GT3 sports car following two incident of fires in Italy and Germany involving the model. The delivery halt will include sales in the United States, a Porsche spokesman told Automotive News. A spokesman remarked that its engineers at its Stuttgart headquarters in Germany are currently examining the remains of the vehicles from Switzerland and Italy to determine the cause of the fires.

"We are looking at the same reports," said Dave Engel, a Porsche US spokesman. "There is a stop delivery order on all in-bound models and vehicles on dealer lots."

Engel said that Porsche is expecting to complete the investigation this week, adding that the sports car maker had so far for 2014 delivered 322 GT3 models, which have a starting price of EUR137,000 ($187,700).

Porsche expects to achieve a goal of selling over 200,000 sports cars and SUVs in 2015, three years earlier than first planned, chief executive Matthias Mueller disclosed last week.
