    Worldcarfans reporting that Porsche have halted deliveries completely after 5 fires in recent weeks.

    It was reported that the recent car was a total write off at a cost of about $225,000 (the price of 2 P85+'s)

    Hopefully no one was injured. I wonder how many have shipped to calculate the percentage chance of this outcome? But no matter what you have to imagine this event happened in testing/qualification.
