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.

She crashed not because the car malfunctioned. She crashed because she as a young and inexperienced driver was distracted by the tons of electronic gadgets modern cars are equipped with.

It is not a cheap car. It properly has GPS, MP3, integrated hands-free cell-phone etc. and it will require that the inexperienced driver sometime look down at the controls rather than looking at the road.

Inexperienced drivers overwhelmed by level of electronics in modern cars have emerged as one of the biggest killers in the traffic of today and it will not be better.

Lindsay Lohan lying again. I'd be more shocked if she actually owned up to her mistakes and told the truth about something for a change.

The question is - who will kill an innocent bystander first - Bieber or Lohan?

Don't worry her spokesperson will soon issue a statement. 1. She never said that or that wasn't what she meant. 2. She wasn't even there that day-or ever. 3. She didn't know the gun was loaded or was in her pocket. 4. The mailman did it..

we all know the system is corrupted every time she goes to court they set her free. Porsche should sue her because by her saying that the Porsche's breaks failed means that Porsche has to do a recall on the specific Porsche/model/car that she rented...

Liar, liar pants on fire, this POS lied again and will get away with it. The few fans she does have left are finally going to realize she is nothing and her time is over.

Morning I can see TMZ has their Lindsay Pony running again......
I also see that the enablers were right there waiting at the 1:00 posting to just right into ripping it apart and making excuses.....
but the one I love the best so far it the one from the enabler with the '"
"she a young and inexperienced driver , distracted by all the high powered electrical gadgets it has in it...."
First of all she 26 fu*king years old.....not 16 and she been driving since she was 16 which would be 10 years that any way you cut it NOT a inexperienced driver.........
And all those distraction gadgets in the high powered car , that shes been driving the same brand for about the same 10 yrs she been driving so she used to them...
No sweetie it was the cell phone that is hot glued to the palm of her hand that was the distraction.....the one she can't put down cause it permanently attacked to her body....the one she was probably talking or testing on....

"Ride this Pony ....Harvey Ride .and use the whip ......PLEASE " llllllll LOL

A Porsche is a car for stupid celebrities more than for anybody else. But when it get's too stupid, even Porsche does not want those rich spoiled idiots drive their cars.
Maybe they should come up with a new add, like

"Our brakes are better than Lindsay Lohan's lies"
