2002 996 Stock Conti Tire Valve Stem Failure

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 10000;

Today my passenger rear stock Conti valve stem failed somehow and the tire went flat. I know it is the stem because I used a compressor to partially reinflate the tire, and when I move the stem toward the rear of the car, the air rushes out. I have had many cars and tires in my life and this is the first time this has happened to me. I would especially not expect this to happen on a Porsche approved stock tire . Anybody else have this happen or have any idea as to the cause?
