I am afraid my new 992 has had to be returned to Porsche with an engine start failure and reduce speed driving. the fault has been diagnosed with a engine fly wheel sensor fault. I don't know how long it will be before the part arrives. I have only had a car a week and only 100 miles.

Nightmare, feel for you.
Mine was back in for 2 days with a faulty rad pipe connection and that was bad enough! Hope they get it sorted ASAP for you.

It will be interesting if mine is the only 992 that has experienced this problem. Apparently there has been a change in the part number for this sensor, and a bulletin notice served from Porsche Germany regarding the change.

Suppose it’s the gamble of early cars in the start of the production run.

I’ve done another couple of hundred miles in mine today... so far no issues.

Not ideal but could be worse.

Remember all those 991 GT3 engines and now GT4 strut towers.

Good luck for a quick fix though. You may get a free service out of it if you whinge a bit. Thumb
