According to the recall report, affected models may have incorrectly calibrated fuel level senders resulting in the fuel level gauge displaying higher levels than actually remain in the tank. In other words, you could run out of gas.
Reports from drivers of new company vehicles, and subsequent related testing, have revealed that the fuel level senders on the affected vehicles may not have been calibrated correctly during the production process. As a result, the calculated range on remaining fuel displayed in the instrument cluster may be higher than the actual range and the fuel level indicated by the fuel gauge may also be higher than actual, If the driver relies entirely on the displayed (incorrect) driving range before refuelling, the vehicle will come to a standstill due to lack of fuel even though the instrument cluster displays a remaining possible driving distance.
Affected Porsche were built from May 27, 2013 through July 10, 2013. Porsche dealers will recode the instrument cluster software. Full info at NHTSA.dot.gov

In the affected vehicles, the passenger seats may be equipped with defective wiring harnesses resulting in intermittent contact with the harness plug. If this were to happen, the front seat and knee airbags may be deactivated.
The supplier of the seats, Lear, informed Porsche that due to a problem caused by a sub-supplier some seats were equipped with defective wiring harnesses. The defective plug of the harness may cause intermittent contact problems which will lead to the deactivation of the passenger seat frontal and knee airbags and the illumination of the respective warning lamp in the instrument cluster.
Affected Porsches were built from September 2, 2013 through September 23, 2013. Porsche dealers will replace the front passenger seat. Full info available at NHTSA.dot.gov
