Paul Walker's daughter sued Porsche for wrongful death Monday, claiming the sports car that her father was in when he was killed suffered from numerous design defects.

Walker was on a break from filming the seventh film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise when he was killed. He was riding in the Carrera GT driven by friend and business associate Roger Rodas when the car spun out of control, struck three trees and burst into flames on a street in Santa Clarita, California.


The 18-page lawsuit includes a detailed recounting of the crash and contends that the Porsche was traveling 63 to 71 mph (101 to 114 kph) when it spun out of control.

Similar allegations of design and safety defects were included in a wrongful death lawsuit by Rodas' widow, Kristine Rodas, that remains pending in a federal court in Los Angeles. Rodas was trained as a race car driver and was only driving 55 mph (89 kph), according to his wife's lawsuit.

See, was only driving 89 kph, 101 to 114 kph on city streets. Proof speeding does not kill, Porsche design does.

Blocked off for filming city streets.

No, speed does not kill. Running in to things at speed kills.

As to design defects, I think they would have shown up a long time ago if there were any real problems.

This was not a film set. They were just cruising around.

I seen that on the news and they were in the core of the city. Not sure what city allows 55mph to 71mph on city streets, that's our highway speeds.

Unlike the Fast & Furious franchise where cars jump from sky scrapper to sky scrapper, roll down cliffs and jump out of planes without a issue ,In the real world the laws of physics and gravity always apply.

That's why I could never watch a Fast & Furious movie , because they are made for 12 year olds and under.

Hans, I simply cannot get a handle on you. I cannot tell if you are posting tongue in cheek or a seriously flawed individual.

It is simply: if they can legally pursue Porsche in this matter, where they clearly demonstrated they violated the law while using the Porsche product, what is the point of that law?

The thousands of other who bought the same Carrera GT are wondering what the daughter's lawyers problem is, but its the states where the national industry behind prison filling is suing every body for anything.

Another individual passing off their responsibilities to a manufacturer. We are fast becoming a people who someone needs to constantly wipe our noses and bottoms while we go blithely on enjoying our freedoms.

The fact they can pursue a frivolous lawsuit makes it seem a good idea to go crash into solid objects at high rates of speed.

It also makes it a good idea to drive fast, since driving fast clearly has no effect on the ability to sue a car manufacturer afterwards for "defects" like "a proper stability control system" or "car going to fast".

In the USA, you can sue someone if you think the car was the wrong colour.

You won't win, but you can sue.
