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.

Yes maybe speed was a factor but the coroner is wrong!! They were dead before that fire the impact of hitting that tree and light was all it took at the high rate of speed people can believe what they want but I'm believing they were both killed on impact

Ok people have a little faith every now and then. People talk bad about this and just don't care. No I don't know these guy personally but I do feel for them and their families. This is very bad way to die. I know what their going through bc ive lost someone close. I pray they will make it through it. And keep his fundraiser going for them. Horner Paul Walker bc he has done so many things good in the world. But the best way I understand it their was already something wrong with the car before they lefties that day. And the fire was not per pose to happen in the front. There was some kind of leak in the sterling of the car.

If speed is a factor of the crash, why is the tree still standing? Considering that the tree is as big as a man's arm. And the road sign says that the speed limit is 45mph only. There is something wrong in the accident. And is there any witnesses that can say they are over speeding? Just an observation and a logical question :)

And now Paul is in Heaven, riding with Jesus in a black Maserati GT and waving to all those sexy female angels. Yea, baby, you wanna sit on my lap? Oh, Paul, continue in Heaven all those wonderful things you were famous for on earth. And put in a good word with Jesus for me. Solid.
