Porsche Sees Solution ‘Shortly’ for 911 GT3 Engine Fires

Porsche AG said it’s close to fixing a fault that caused engine fires in a racing version of the 911 sports car in a recall that cast a shadow on the Volkswagen AG division’s growth plans.

“We know the reason and the problem-solving measures,” Chief Executive Officer Matthias Mueller said today at a press conference near company headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. “We’re testing them.” Porsche plans to announce the technical solution “shortly” and will first inform customers, he said.
