A software fault means there is the potential for the assistance offered by the electric power steering to become unavailable for a limited period, according to Porsche.

Owners are being warned the power steering control unit needs to be re-programmed with an updated data record as a precautionary measure.

Affected customers are being contacted in writing and asked to visit their Porsche Centre as soon as possible. The workshop visit will take around an hour, and is free of charge for customers.
