Porsche Australia has recalled 258 examples of its 2021-2023 Porsche 911, due to a fault which could cause the sports car’s side airbags to deploy in a crash when not needed.
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a programming issue, the side airbags installed in the seats may unnecessarily deploy in the event of an accident.
