Regardless of super car safety and auto safety in general.
It's a sad day for JDM car fans and fast & furious fans. RIP P. Walker !
I hope they still get the next F&F out for him and us. It would be the best memorial to him.
Just to remind all the critics out there, the Porsche Carrera GT is the most powerfull car Porsche has ever produced and is known to be tail happy and difficult to control.
As one Jeremy Clarkson says: If you take these cars to far, they bite your head off.
edit: I had a look at the pics on the net. The car broke off in half just where the seats are located. It hit the tree sideways on the passenger door where Paul would have been sitting. I have no doubt in my mind that he went instantly.
I can't have the same certainty about his racing driver buddy Rodas but he had to go real fast to rip the car appart like that. After that, the fuel ignited and as the tank is in the front it burned down that part of the car.
The only thing that baffles me is that the head lights are not from a Carrera GT and you can'tt buy it new anymore.
I had a look and the car he was driving was the new Porsche 918 Spyder.
I guess Porsche Spyders are deadly to actors. See James Dean...
