Porsche Issues Global Recall for All Taycan Models Due to Brake Failure Concerns

Porsche Recalls All Taycan Electric Sports Cars Due to Brake Problem

Porsche is recalling all ever built examples of the Porsche Taycan electric sports car to the workshops due to a potential braking problem on the front axle. According to reports, the Taycan can experience a braking problem that can lead to brake failure, which is extremely disadvantageous for such a fast and heavy vehicle.

The braking problem is said to only affect a few vehicles specifically, with Porsche stating that 150 vehicles are affected, which is approximately 0.1 percent of the Taycans delivered. However, brake failure is possible in these vehicles.

As a precautionary measure, Porsche is recalling all Taycans to the workshop from July 2024, where employees will replace the brake hoses on the front axle. This process is expected to take around two hours.

The recall affects over 150,000 Taycans sold so far, with the USA and Germany being the most affected countries. In the USA, over 31,000 Taycans need to be taken to the workshop, while in Germany, almost 12,000.

So far, there has been one accident due to the brake problem, but fortunately, no one was injured.

The official recall document for the USA can be found here, which states that 5 percent of the vehicles are affected, which is a higher number than Porsche states.

The affected Taycans were produced between October 21, 2019 and June 13, 2024. The error description reads as follows:

“On certain Taycan vehicles, the front brake hoses may become cracked, causing brake fluid to leak out. The loss of brake fluid can lead to reduced functionality of the front brakes. The rear brakes remain fully functional.”

Additionally, the compression of the front brake hoses under certain steering and driving conditions can place stress on the front brake hoses at the point of minimum bend radius, which over time can lead to possible damage to the inner fabric layer of the hoses.

However, the vehicle warns the driver if a certain amount of brake fluid is lost, displaying various warning messages, such as “Brake Fluid Low” or “PSM Error”.
