Everyone knows that Porsche are “hot” cars, but nobody realized just how hot until two of its 2014 911 GT3 sports coupes burst into flames. As a result, the company has alerted owners of all 785 of the produced cars in February telling them to stop driving them immediately via phone calls and e-mails. In addition, dealers were instructed to stop all orders.

“This was not a recall but a proactive safety measure,” stressed company spokesman Nick Twork, who added that the automaker is also working with the NHTSA regarding the issue. No injuries related to the engine fires have been reported.

In the meantime, Porsche’s executive officer Matthias Müller stated that they “now know the reason-solution to the technical problem, and will be announcing the results to its customers first,” during a recent press conference near the company’s headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

For more information drivers can contact Porsche at 800-767-7243.
