2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Certain versions of the iconic Porsche 911 are being recalled due to a potentially dangerous central locking hub on the wheels, which if untreated could cause a crash. The affected models are the high-performance--and high-pricetag--911 Turbo, GT3 and GT2 models from the 2010 and current 2011 model years.

The full list includes the 2010 and 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo, Turbo S, GT3, GT3 RS and GT2 RS, specifically those built between May 18, 2009 and September 17, 2010, and equipped with a center locking hub on their wheel assemblies.

According to Porsche, the hubs can wear prematurely, causing the wheels to loosen and thus increasing the chances of a crash. 

There are a total of 1,702 affected cars in the country, and owners are recommended to take their cars to their nearest dealer to have the faulty component replaced for free.
