Paul Walker

Final Moments Before Fatal Ride [Photo]

12/1/2013 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Moments before Paul Walker took what turned out to be a fatal ride -- he posed proudly next to the exotic car that exploded on impact in the deadly accident.

Paul was photographed with the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that belonged to his friend Roger Rodas. They were attending a fundraiser in Santa Clarita, CA.

We're told the photos and video were taken about 30 minutes before the accident.

As TMZ first reported ... Paul had put together the charitable event -- through his Reach Out Worldwide organization -- to support typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines.

Paul was the passenger in the Porsche when Rodas lost control and slammed into a tree. The car exploded, and the Sheriff's Department says speed was a factor.

In all my years in law enforcement I've never seen a car that mangled. Paul I enjoyed your 2005 diving movie, Into the Blue.


Reminder that all of our stay on this planet is ephemeral. Be sure to tell your loved ones how you feel about them every opportunity.

"he posed proudly next to the exotic car that exploded on impact in the deadly accident." you guys are such sensationalist and its sad...As you can see from the video he was not "proudly posing" but hey! it makes a great comment that will sell advertising on your website... Smarten up TMZ! you sensationalize too much...but i guess that's what pays your bills!

I drive trucks and larger vehicles. About six years ago I took a friend's Porsche for a spin. I'm a good driver but that was too much of a vehicle for me. The steering is so precise you can practically drive it with one finger. What a horrible thing to happen to him ... or to anyone ... and to have his friends be first on the scene. There's going to be a lot of grief going around. Rest in peace.

So utterly sad and tragic. I hope neither of them suffered. RIP.

Maybe Paul should have drove it then. Either way it's a damn shame. He loved doing the second thing best in his life. I still can't believe it.........just knots in my stomach and my heart is so heavy. He was an AMAZING guy and actor. R.I.P Paul
