Quoted from the famous Porsche enthusiast forum, Rennlist: "Porsche has announced that it will reimburse or repair any and all IMS issues that have occurred with their 996, 997, and 987 models due to an improper engine design culminating in perhaps the largest recall in automotive history. Porsche decided that this would be the only way to avoid a massive class action suit, and will honor any IMS claims that have caused catastrophic engine failures.

Repairs by Independent shops and Porsche factory trained franchises will need verification and actual receipts in order to to qualify for a full refund from the factory. Regardless of whether you are the original owner or a successive owner, this action will be across the board regarding coverage.
New Porsche management have decided to take this unprecedented measure in order to foster and protect Porsche’s good name and reputation in the automotive industry. Please contact your nearest dealer for additional information and schedule an appointment for your IMS reimbursement."

Update: April’s Fool !

Well, happy April’s fools indeed. Lol. Anyhow, if they really were to recall that much cars, then it would be a breather for Toyota then, the record for most recalls will be with Porsche. But, does Porsche produce and sell as much as Toyota? Probably not, so if ever Porsche did have problems, Toyota will still have the belt for the worst recalls.

If Porsche lied to you, and I’m refering to the owners of porsche models presented above, what makes you think they would not lie to you again?
I mean they said that they :" will reimburse or repair any and all IMS issues that have occurred with their 996, 997, and 987 models " because they want: "to avoid a massive class action suit". So in conclusion they don’t want you to be happy, they want to save the reputation of the brand.
