Car that killed Paul Walker "is like a wild animal"

Paul Walker was famous for driving fast cars in the movies. He lost his life in one of the fastest cars legally allowed on the road. The Porsche Carerra GT drives like a race car. It is also a rare car to find. Kyung Lah took a test ride in the GT.

    Now is the time to bring up a bill to limit the power these cars have!!! These cars have too much power and are only designed to break speed limit laws!!! There is no reason a person should own this or other 'super' cars!

    Like Herschel said "the car didn't kill him" but he wasn't driving. He was a passenger. The driver was incapable of handling the car and therefore killed him. He shouldn't have been behind the wheel!

    They tested the car how fast it could go. The driver (roger) couldnt handle the car anymore. Started drifting etc... and hit a tree. I dont think the car did it but the driver behind the wheel that drive at risk

    Cars don't kill people – Reckless drivers kill people!

    I would say that the tires did not have enough traction or adhesion to the road; compound that with the power of the car. I guess its a heads up for tire manufacturers to create tires with super traction and grip for street legal super cars – the porsche carrera GT (that i read because i don't own one) have no stability control its like an agile F-16 on the road.

    It is my understanding that the driver was a race car driver who drove for Porsche. It is hard to undestand that he would not know the nuancces of that car. There has to be more to that terribgle accident that saying he did not drive it properly..?

    The CAR didn't kill him.. he died driving the car. The car would only be to blame if there was a mechanical malfunction.

      He wasn't driving the car. He was the passenger.
