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.

It's all fun to kick the snot out of Lindsey and everyone that did may very well be correct, but there is one thing about this article that strikes me as strange.

Did anyone really think Porsche would test the brakes and come out with a statement saying "Oh yeah, by the way, our brakes were faulty"?

And of course, the evidence is now useless.

Someone, somewhere should have been smart enough to have a 3rd party evaluate the brakes, and of course TMZ should have questioned the results themselves before publishing.

"Porsche says not our fault"

"Lindsey says not my fault"

Yep, both unbiased statements.

Heres to hoping the Liz and Dick Insurance company sues her and presses charges too! She did not have permission to drive the car.

@nikki...the porsche was rented by Lohan herself not Lifetime. Lifetime didn't want her driving because of her lousy driving record.


Lifetime has nothing to do with Lohan totaling the porsche that's all on Lohan.

@gossip and we all know why that was. Lohan knew she was not allowed to drive to and from the set. But of course she didn't care and does what she wants and look what happened.


The good thing is is the the Porsche was Lohans rental and had nothing to do with lifetime. Lohan is completly stuck with that mess.

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".
