I visited my dealer yesterday and spoke with the Service Manager and my Service Advisor. Both advised me that my 4S was not subject to this recall. Hopefully, that is the case. Time will tell although I will not be surprised to receive notification from Porsche saying that my car is in need of this software update.

I checked as well. They know the VIN numbers of those being recalled, so you can check.

So are you saying they have the software update and its just a matter of waiting in line to get it done?

Just call your dealer and have them check your Vin number.

A little of both. First they only have two qualified tech/mechanics to do it and secondly it normally takes 2-3 days for install and then a day to test! I suspect that’s the norm at dealers in both cases. Maybe a good retirement gig for old Apple employees 😎

That's interesting. My dealer is telling me its a 60-90 installation so you can wait if you choose to.

Wow, that’s not anywhere near what I’ve seen here. I guess if they’ve got it down … but I'm skeptical. The problem I’ve heard is that the installation goes well but it crashes systems already onboard and that means a little trial and error.

Crazy to see that 43,000 models are impacted by this. Here's another article on the issue.

I’m confused about the 43,000 number. My Salesperson said that Porsche hasn’t made that many yet.

I will continue to monitor the situation at my dealer to establish a time frame.
