Catching sight of Bigfoot is rare, having a close encounter with an alien is rarer still, but a Porsche recall has to be the rarest thing ever.

Yes, this usually bullet-proof manufacturer with a unrivaled reputation for building fast and reliable cars, has just issued a recall for 1702 examples of their 911-model. The defective part is the wheel hub for models fitted with the central locking wheel device.

This system, as used in Porsche racing cars, is intended to reduce rotating mass, while also allowing for quicker tire changes. However, 911 Turbo, Turbo S, GT2, GT3 and GT3 RS models built between May 2009 and September 2010 can be affected by a defected hub which would wear prematurely and that could lead to a crash. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) had notified Porsche of the potential problem, and now Porsche will fix all these cars with a new, improved part.

For a recall, this is a serious recall. If Porsche has been using this technology for many years in professional racing and never or hardly failed, I wonder why it has failed on their on-road cars.

What is Porsche doing differently with the central locking wheel device from it's track cars to road cars?
