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.

The only thing wrong with that car was the loose nut behind the wheel.

As I sit in my little piece of Paradise, I tune into TMZ and see that the shiit has hit the fan again with Lindsay. All she has to do is tell the truth and be honest. That's it, and her life could be very good again. What screw is she missing here?

Think I am going offline for a bit. The ENABTURDS seem to be having a real problem staying on topic today. Just LOVE when they try to deflect to inane BS because they have no REAL response to the topic at hand. If you need the sarge at arms, just have Madisyn call me. She is liason to most, LMAO

Lindsay Lohan Dissed By 'Liz & Dick' Co-Star

Being in the same zip code as Lindsay Lohan sounds like it might be trying at times, so we cannot imagine what it would be like to be her costar. Her Liz & Dick co-star Grant Bowler, a sexy Kiwi who really doesn't look a damn thing like Richard Burton (but that's OK), got blabbypants on a red carpet and told a reporter that working with LiLo has been "challenging." You don't say!

Bowler chatted with Beyond The Trailer at Comic-Con and confirmed he may need a bit of of media training. When asked how it was working with Lindsay, he didn't hold back. "It was challenging. Lindsay's Lindsay and it is always going to be that way," he said. "She brought a lot to the table. Every day, it was, we stepped up to the plate, looked each other in the eye and tried to be truthful to the material and the spirit of those two people as they could."

The reporter then suggested any on-set troubles may have helped the cast "get into character," given how the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had a notoriously volatile relationship. Bowler still took the bait. "The reality of that relationship is, and was, that was an incredibly tempestuous, tumultous relationship," he said. "They fought as hard as they loved and they loved as hard as they drank."

Right up Lindsay's alley, eh?

Grant Bowler, you are going to get yelled at by some Lifetime executive (and also mama Dina Lohan). But I like you.
