its new Macan off-road vehicles to check for faulty brakes after
quality tests revealed that some brake booster units may have
been damaged during the assembly process, the carmaker said on

Porsche said in March that it will replace the engines in
its 911 GT3 models and told owners to stop driving the sports
cars because they could catch fire.

than 200,000 vehicles in 2015, from 162,000 last year, thanks to
brisk demand for its sports utility vehicles.
