Inadequate weld seams on Porsche 911 tailpipes are blamed for a worldwide recall with implications for 18,600 vehicles. The suspect weld joins the vehicles’ tailpipes and their exhaust tip fastening clamps. There have been about 30 reports worldwide that welds have failed and exhaust tips have fallen off. The recall affects 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S models built between April 20, 2004 and Oct. 21, 2005 – nearly 6,000 of which were sold in the U.S. and Canada.
