I saw the question about the 1997 993 Cab top and I am enclosing the article the person mentioned about the recall.FRANKFURT -- German automaker Porsche is recalling more than 18,000 cabriolet models of its flagship 911 sports car to check the roof mechanism in a move that could cost up to 10 million euros ($14 million). Porsche said in a statement it was recalling 18,165 of the vehicles built between Aug. 11, 1993, and Jan. 26, 1998, because their soft tops could open unexpectedly at high speeds. A spokesman said the cost of the recall was likely to be between 5 million and 10 million euros. The carmaker added that the fault had not caused any accidents or injuries, to its knowledge. Porsche said it had at first assumed that an error in service was to blame for the fault in a car it was monitoring, as no such problem had shown up in normal quality control. After two further cases were reported in Germany, it established that a tear in the roof-winding drive was to blame. Porsche, the world's most profitable carmaker, will launch two new cabriolet versions of its iconic 911 in Europe in April.
