Porsche wants to recall some of its 911 GT3 and GT3 RS cars

Porsche has issued a recall for its 911 cars because of fears that their seatbelt buckles may not come undone after an accident.

The recall applies to 43 911 GT3 and GT3 RS cars that are fitted with optional six-point seatbelt harnesses. Faulty seatbelt buckles are at the centre of concerns. The fear is that if buckles can't be undone after an accident, the seatbelts themselves would have to be cut.

To remedy the situation, Porsche wants to examine the seatbelt buckle, check its production date and replace it if it's part of the suspected faulty batch. Porsche will contact owners of affected vehicles to arrange a date for the inspection.
