Recall Porsche 911 GT3: seat belt problems


Porsche is recalling nearly 100 sports cars worldwide. The seat belt may not be fastened properly on the Porsche 911 GT3.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and automaker Porsche have launched a recall campaign for the 911 GT3 in the United States. Currently, 15 vehicles are affected in the USA. About 20 vehicles are said to be affected in Germany and less than 100 worldwide.



Due to an error in the assembly process, which has since been corrected, some restored vehicles that have the optional bucket seats may not have the bolt to secure the lower seat belt to the seat frame to the specified torque. If the lower seat belt anchor screw loosens in a crash, the seat belt buckle may detach from the seat, increasing the risk of injury. In some cases, the bolt connection of the coupling attachment can pinch, loosen, or rattle.


This style is particularly influenced by the commemoration in the United States:

  • Porsche 911 GT3 from production period July 14, 2021 to May 31, 2022 (15 vehicles)

(worldwide: less than 100 cars; USA: 15 cars; Germany: about 20 cars)


The affected bolts shall be replaced and tightened to specifications. If the thread is damaged, the shape of the seat will also be changed. The recall can be found at NHTSA under case number 22V-803. KBA has not yet received a call – but will follow.
