Porsche is recalling 2,263 model-year 2012-13 versions of the 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 coupes and convertibles due to a problem with the exhaust system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from March 7 through Nov. 12, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and equipped with the 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine and standard exhaust system. In these cars, the tailpipe could fracture and fall off the car, becoming a road hazard.

The automaker has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. "Porsche is not aware of any defects or reported failures on any customer-owned vehicles. All defects determined to date were reported on internal Porsche test vehicles with higher mileages [greater than 25,000 miles]," the automaker said in a statement.

Owners can call Porsche at 800-767-7243 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more information.
