2014 Porsche 911 GT3 Engine Replacements

You don’t typically hear of such a high-profile car company replacing engines of it’s top-of-the-line super car. But, according to the guys over at Automobile Magazine, that’s just what Porsche is doing with the 911 GT3.

I have often looked up to the 911 GT3 as the pinnacle of autos, and for me, this doesn’t damage the brand. However, when you spend this kind of money on a super car, you don’t expect to have the hassle of an engine replacement after just a short time.


Apparently, the problem with the 3.8 liter flat-six, is with the connecting rod fasteners. If they were to fail, the engine is toast. Kudos to Porsche for replacing the entire engine, vs rebuilding or repairing the problem.

How would you feel if your GT3 just got recalled?
