Atlanta, GA – June 26, 2022 – Porsche (OTCMKTS: POAHY) is recalling 12,490 vehicles whose central display may fail to display an image from the rearview camera. This increases the risk of a crash and injury when backing up. The recall affects 2020-2022 Porsche Taycan sedans.
Porsche vehicles listed in this recall have a touch control panel in their center console. This display shows a video feed from the rearview camera, among other things. On affected vehicles, as a result of software issues, the screen could freeze up and remain black just after the driver starts the car. In other cases, the image coming from this camera may flicker.
The component causing this issue is the software for the center and passenger displays and the touch control panel, with part numbers SW33XX, 35XX and 36XX.
Limited visibility while backing up the vehicle increases the risk of a crash, which can lead to property damage or injury to people behind the car, especially small children. Read more about the history of rearview cameras in our recent article about a similar Stellantis recall.
