Porsche Recalls 5,000 Boxsters and Caymans

The manufacturing defects are in the Porsche Boxster and Cayman’s rear axle carrier

  • The recall involves issues with the rear axle.

  • 2013-2015 Boxster and 2014-2015 Caymans are part of the recall.

Both the Porsche Boxster and Cayman are among the greatest driving guilty pleasures in the world. And if you own one from the 2013 to 2015 model years, you might receive a recall notice from Porsche in early November.

Specifically, the rear axle carrier side sections have been found to not meet specifications and could weaken over time. The part could crack, break, or both in time, and induce a loss of control. Thankfully, the failure shouldn’t happen suddenly, in most cases, as Porsche says that a rattling noise could be heard coming from the rear when driving.

The issue was first discovered back in March of 2020 when Porsche discovered that 10 out of 153 parts inspected were faulty. The upcoming recall will include a total of 4,934 Porsche in the US. The 2013-2015 Boxster, 2013-2014 Boxster S, 2014-2015 Cayman and Cayman S, as well as the 2015 Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS will be recalled.

The fix is simple enough. The fault carrier side sections will be replaced at no charge with new parts. Once the repair is done, your Boxster or Cayman will be just as good if not better to drive.
