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.

Lohan rented the Porsche to try and look like she's relevant like she's someone important. Yeah, that worked well.

There is nothing that says more about a person's character than pushing the responsibility for her actions on another. It speaks volumes about her morality and ethics. Shame on her. It's skeevy and gross not to realize taking responsibility for your actions is something most of the world knew was the right way to conduct yourself since kindergarten.

More likely she had been either drinking or doing drugs and texting while driving!

My only thought is that maybe the Porsche had ABS breaks and she didn't know how to work them. I know when I got my volvo it had ABS and I would push the brakes and they would go all the way to the floor. i though for sure I was going to hit the car in front of me. I then realized you had to pump the brake a bit to get the brake to stop up higher than the floor. Not making an excuse for her but it's a possibility.

Yup    

So, this self centered arrogant entitled tw*t lied again? No surprise there; she lies so much she doesn't even know when she's lying anymore.

Attn: Los Angeles Legal System - DO NOT GIVE THIS STUPID BITCH ANY MORE PASSES. She's received her last "last chance". Please be sure to prosecute this stupid bitch to the fullest extent of the law, including PRISON (not jail) time for lying to a police officer. Enough is enough.

PORSCHE GET A CLUE... THE KEY IS NOT TO TEST FOR BRAKE FAILURE BUT TO TEST LESLO FOR PATHOLOGICAL LYING. WE ALREADY KNOW THE RESULTS. YOU JUST HAVE TO CONFIRM IT. #TRUTH!!

LINDSAY DROPS BY USC SCHOOL!

Lindsay Lohan came to the USC School for Performing Arts to audition to get career training and sign up for courses. The audition went well and was captured on video.

Think she is ready?

Toyota and Lexus (same company) both claimed their accelerators weren't malfunctioning, either. Corporations lie all the time about the safety of their products, too. With that said, I have no use for LiLo or Porsche. Just sayin.

Well, well, well. For the last week Black Cloud has been tooting his horn on how Lying Lohan is not going to jail.
Seems to me that Black Cloud has once again, set a Black Jinx upon Lindsay Lohan going to jail.

Bravo! Sport-O !

No news here. We already know whatever comes out of a Lohan's mouth, especially Lindsay Lohan, is a lie,

Look out peeps, the good State of California still allows Lilo to drive, so there is danger out there.

Just so you know.

How Can Porsche be 100% sure the brakes did not fail did they test the person who was alleging to be pushing on the brakes. If they go test Lindsay they might find she has a screw loose somewhere in that head of hers, where there is suppose to be a brain.
