Lindsay Lohan Crash

No Way

Porsche's Brakes Failed

7/14/2012 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Ms. Lohan can tell her "friends" anything she wants about the brakes on the Porsch. It's not illegal. However, if her friends believed the brakes were bad, this was not true, the friends held a negative of Porsch due to the statement and Porsch can prove it was financilly harmed, then they may want to bring a civil lawsuit. However, TMZ republished the "story" which Ms. Lohan may have felt was private statements to her "friends" and not intended for public absorption. Therefore, it may real difficult for Porsche to prove it's case and TMZ may be protected as providing "news" of a public figure. If Ms. Lohan made false statement to the police about the brakes...this is potentially a different story. Perhaps it's like a young man speeding down the freeway and telling highway patrol his name is Justin...ahhh "Johnson".

I don't like her but this article is baseless. Porsche testing the brakes on the car is like big tobacco running tests on cigarettes and saying they don't cause health problems. Porsche has an agenda to protect itself from product liability. Do I believe her? No. Do I believe Porsche? No.

If she said that the terrorists did it, I *might* have believed her.

Of course she lied and the old "my brakes failed" is the oldest lie in the book when it comes to rear end accidents. Lindsay also tried to blame her assistant by telling the cops he was driving. I am starting to think she doesnt know how to tell the truth, she is pathalogical.

I'm lucky to own the exact same car Lyndsay was driving and of course this woman lies every time she opens her mouth. Porsche should sue her for slander.

Kind of hard for the truck to cut her off when she is obviously going faster than the truck. Damn brakes, oh wait, wrong pedal

Best Buy, once the largest-ever consumer electronics retailer, has fallen on hard times. A combination of extremely poor management, consistently low ratings in ethics and morals, and a healthy helping of pure greed have all but put the company down. But not out.

The Senior VP of marketing S. Adam Honig has implemented a solution that he says will turn the beleaguered retailer around with a spectacular comeback: “Adult-oriented” DVD/BluRay rentals. “It isn’t comfortable to admit”, said Honig, “but we simply got careless. We were drowning in trillions. We were a young company and suddenly found ourselves drunk with financial power. We operated in a bubble of fantasy and blinded ourselves to what the rest of the world knew all along. We listened to no one and did whatever the fvck we wanted, and look what happened”.

Explaining the new strategy, Honig went on and on and on to say that after careful study of the facts, the sun will shine again for electronics lovers. “We tried it all” said Honig. “We did multiple media blitzes. Branding. We masqueraded ourselves as relevant, successful companies. We even crashed the competitors’ private meetings. This one, though, is a no-brainer. We can’t lose. Time to start shopping, people”.

Had Honig opened his news browser anytime in the last 2 years, he might have noticed that no one rents DVD’s anymore - it’s all streaming. We don’t mind…. We all like to watch a good train wreck.

This forum looks like a modern version of the Roman Circus! Thousands cheering for her execution! Everyone accusing her of not taking responsibility, deflecting blame, etc.

It is HUMAN NATURE. Everyone does it!


This is my way of spitting on your face, you repugnant no good filthy amoral human garbage!

1) First she said she wasn't driving the car, her assistant was - LIE
2) Then she said the truck swerved in front of her - LIE
3) Then she said the cars brakes didn't work - LIE

That's 3 lies she told police on this one accident alone. She's the most dishonest piece of trash around. Please prosecute her for 3 counts of purposely lying to police, and throw her drunk drugged up skanky ass in PRISON (not jail) for as long as possible...

She does not look well. Looks to be in poor health. Doesn't look young at all.

Like I said before, Lindsay probably THOUGHT she hit the brakes and they failed but she actually hit the clutch instead by mistake during the confusion. Besides, didn't the police already test the brakes and confirm they weren't defective? So this story is pretty pointless.
