Lindsay Lohan Crash

No Way

Porsche's Brakes Failed

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan's brakes couldn't have failed last month -- moments before she slammed her Porsche into an 18-wheeler -- because sources tell TMZ, Porsche itself tested the car after the crash ... and the brakes passed with flying colors.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay blamed faulty brakes for the accident.-- telling friends she slammed on the brakes when the truck allegedly cut her off ... and nothing happened.

As it happens, we're told Porsche caught wind of Lindsay's excuse and contacted the company that rented Lindsay the vehicle -- asking if it could formally test the car.

According to sources, the rental company obliged -- and Porsche ran its tests, finding the brakes that had been installed on the car were A-OK, and showed no evidence of malfunction ... which blows Lindsay's bum brakes excuse out of the water.

A rep for the Santa Monica PD had no comment. A rep for Porsche also had no comment -- but did say they're cooperating with authorities. Calls to Lindsay were not returned.

WHAT??? Lindsay lied about something and tried to deflect the blame for another one of her f*** ups? You must be kidding. That doesn't seem like her at all.

AHahhaha awww no, you can always count on Lindsay to do something that ends up on tmz. She really needs to get her act together though, and I honestly hope she does.

If someone at Porsche thought she was telling the truth, they need their head examined. The only thing that comes out of this chicks mouth is lies and coke residue.

First she lied and said she wasn't driving, now she's been caught in yet ANOTHER lie of the breaks failing. I forgive losers, but I can't forgive liars.

Good riddance!    

Not only one lie from this duck billed lying grifter, but two. The brakes failed AND she was cut off, both of which have been shown to be outright lies. But this is nothing new. She lies like the sleeping rug on her head. What an utter useless POS waste of perfectly good oxygen.
I hope she's arrested by the popo and sued by the rental company, Porsche, the trucking company, and the trucker for slandering him and causing him extended grief and damages.

Yank her license already (biebette too) ... causing this bad crash is a probation violation?

Porsche don't like to be blamed for her inability to drive a car...
That's probably not the kind of publicity Porsche appreciates.

The only that that failed was her ability to tell the truth about the situation. Her story changed over and over from who was driving to how it happened...she's mentally ill (most likely a sociopath) and always high.

Hmmmm... Porsche said they are cooperating with authorities, not in the past tense. Does that mean the investigation is still ongoing?? Might more come from this?
