My new Porsche 911 almost caught fire a decade ago when the power steering fluid hose popped off ....sudden loss of steering and smoked like crazy...but somehow no flames ....there was later a service action to do something with the clamp on certain VINs

theres a lot of hot stuff stacked one atop another with hoses snaked around all of it with mid or rear engined cars
