Porsche will recall all of its 911 GT3 sports-cars that have been manufactured worldwide this year because of fears they may catch fire.

Reuters reports that two of the cars have caught alight and, as a result, all 785 of the 2014 models which have so far been made this year will be recalled.

According to the company, the two fire incidents did not result in any injuries or crashes.

SMH reports that only nine of the new GT3 models affected are in Australia. Five of these have already been delivered to customers, who will be contacted by Porsche Australia.

 “We are contacting all customers and advising them that we will pick the cars up from them,” Porsche Australia press relations manager Paul Ellis told SMH. “They have either been contacted or are in the process of being contacted.

“We will bring the cars back to the dealership and we are waiting further advice from Germany as to what the technical fix is.”
