Recalled: 2012 Porsche 911 for Fuel-Line Leak
The connector in new Carrera S models could malfunction and leak fuel.
Porsche said the car's fuel-line connector could be touching a coolant pipe from the front radiators, which "can impair the locking function of the quick connector, causing the quick connector to open and leak fuel." In addition to potential fires, the engine could shut off without notice, the company said.
Dealers will install spacer rings if the coolant pipe and fuel line are touching. The recall for the 1,232 cars will begin in April.
The 911 is all-new for 2012 and features a wider wheelbase, larger engines, more luxurious interiors, and an industry-first 7-speed manual transmission.

Well Troy, Porsche isn't like GM. Posche has had recalls in the past, and they've always been good about them.
If Porsche was like GM, they'd call this a "customer satisfaction program".
