Porsche 911 recall

An article from What Car? states that 43 911 GT3s and RS are suffering from faulty seatbelts. The optional six-point belt's unlocking mechanism apparently won't come loose, causing concerns that if a crash were to take place, the people inside wouldn't be able to exit the vehicle.

Porsche 911 owners will be contacted in order to schedule a date and time for inspection.
