In today's rich people are just like us news, Porsche recently had to issue a recall on the $850,000, 887 hp, 214 mile per hour 918 Spyder hybrid supercar.
Internal tests have shown that the rear-axle longitudinal and transverse control arms from a certain production batch do not meet the required specifications and may have been installed on some vehicles.
This can result in a change in the material properties and reduced durability. In severe service or after an extended period of time, it is possible that the connecting links of a control arm could break, making it more difficult to control the vehicle.
Porsche figured this out during in "extreme race conditions" while testing at Porsche's test track and at Nardo. I would've liked to have seen that discovery happen.
All the affected cars are going back to the shop, inspected, and will get their control arms replaced if they're bad.
