The engine may stall unexpectedly while driving because of a problem with certain engine components called camshaft controllers becoming loose inside the engine. This would increase risk of an accident.

Recall repairs on your Porsche must be performed by a Porsche dealership. Porsche will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Porsche dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Porsche recall number is AH08.
