Porsche has recalled its 918 hybrid supercar over a potentially dangerous chassis fault, with 205 cars affected globally.

Although no failures have been reported to date, Porsche says it detected the fault during routine quality control testing at a supplier and could not "permanently guarantee" the longevity of the part.

The company refuses to go into detail about which component requires replacement, saying only that it's a part of the 661kW supercar's chassis.

It's not known if the current recall is related to a previous recall concerning the 918's rear control arms.

Porsche says all owners affected by the recall have been contacted, and that the repair work will take roughly two days.

So, if you're one of the unlucky many affected by the recent round of vehicle recalls for Jeep, Volkswagen, Holden and Ford (among others), you can take solace in the fact that even those who've spent megadollars on a hybrid supercar are in the same boat.
