Porsche said the cracks could result to seepage of fuel from the fuel tank thus increasing risks of fire.
Porsche during the recall said they have not received any report of an incident in the Porsche models but would have to take precaution.
In total, there are 51,497 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS and Macan Turbo models affected.
In March, an estimated 17,871 were called back due to a glitch with the occupant detection sensor that could cause oversteer while driving.
