[Gossip] Porsche Has Been Sued Before Over Car That Paul Walker Died In
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.04.2013



TMZ reports that Porsche was sued in 2005 over a car crash involving the Porsche Carrera GT, the car that Paul Walker died in.

In the lawsuit, two men (a driver and passenger) were killed on a California race track while driving the 2005 Carrera GT, hitting a wall at over 100 MPH while trying to avoid another car. The family sued everyone involved for gross negligence and won $4.5 million in the settlement, $350,000 paid by Porsche. The lawsuit claimed the car didn't handle correctly on the track, according to the family's attorney Craig McClellan. Testimony from Porsche experts confirmed that there was a design flaw and the car didn't have a Porsche Stability Management system.

The PSMS uses a computer to correct the car if the rear end loses control. It is required by law today. The company denied it had any part in the accident as the car met federal safety standards for the time, but still paid part of the settlement to avoid any more legal issues.

It's unknown if Roger Rodas' Carrera GT had a PSMS, but McClellan said that none of the 2005 models had the system. So far, Paul's family has not filed a lawsuit.
