Porsche to recall over 31,000 Taycan electric cars due to a brake malfunction

The all-electric Porsche Taycan was hit with another recall. Porsche is recalling certain 2020 to 2025 Taycan models over a faulty front brake hose.

Porsche issues new Taycan recall: What to know

Porsche introduced its first electric sports car, the Taycan, in 2019. Since then, Porsche has sold over 150,000 models globally.

Despite its early success, the Taycan has been hit by several minor recalls. Last December, over 41,000 Taycan models were recalled due to a faulty charging cable. Meanwhile, a few hundred models were recalled in March due to a potential short circuit within battery modules.

Porsche issued its latest Taycan recall for certain 2020 to 2025 models this week. The letter states the front hoses on these vehicles can crack over time and leak brake fluid.

According to Porsche’s letter to the NHTSA, the recall impacts 31,689 Taycan models. After receiving several reports about brake hose leakages, Porsche issued an investigation.

Although no accidents have been reported in the US, Porsche is issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution.

One accident was reported overseas, but the vehicle was traveling “significantly” over the speed limit. According to the report, the car was traveling about 120 km/h in a 30 km/h zone.

Porsche dealers will install a new front brake hose with increased flexibility to reduce the load, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to go out on July 3, 2024.

Taycan owners can contact Porsche’s customer service at 1-800-767-7243. The recall number is ARB0. You can also visit the NHTSA website or call the hotline at 1-888-327-4236. The NHTSA campaign number is 24V-455.

Meanwhile, Porsche introduced the new 2025 Taycan model in February with more range, faster charging, and quicker acceleration than ever.

The following month, Porsche unveiled the Taycan Turbo GT, its fastest street-legal vehicle. The 1,092 hp electric sports car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds, rivaling the Tesla Model S.
