All 2012-2013 Porsche 991 generation 911 models receiving recall due to exhaust pipe defect
This recall affects 2012-2013 Porsche 991 generation 911 models but only those built from March 7, 2012 until November 12, 2012. If you own a 2012-2013 991 please call your dealer immediately to see if you are affected. The exhaust pipe issue is that the piping will fail or fracture causing the pipes to separate from the muffler. You can see how this can be a major safety issue not just for owners but for others on the road if this were to happen at high speed.
Porsche will do their best to contact owners regarding the recall but Porsche can also be reached at 1-800-767-7243.

Apparently this only becomes an issue on cars with 25,000 miles or more, based on two cars owned by Porsche Cars NA. This means it won't happen to any cars in the real world until 2015, based on the ridiculous obsession of most 911 owners to not put any miles on their cars.
