Porsche issues warning after Paul Walker’s death
German luxury carmaker Porsche has sent a warning to US dealers, after the tragic death of Hollywood actor Paul Walker, for letting anyone drive the car. The warning claims the car Walker was driving had “all the disadvantages of a racecar”.
A memo sent to a dealer not only reveals how remarkably powerful the £300,000 Carrera GT is, but also that “thisvehicle cannot drive over a Foster Beer can that is lying on its side” without being damaged.
The letter issued reads: “The Carerra GT is as close to a racecar as we will ever get. The car has all the disadvantages of a racecar. You need help negotiating small inclines. You need to be aware of what type of road surface you are on.”
The cause of the actors’ death was an accident which is still under investigation but its speed is said to be a major factor.
