The Paul Walker death investigation has taken a new turn -- mechanical experts who work at Porsche in Germany are flying out to L.A. in an attempt to get to the bottom of what caused the fatal crash ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... they want a full analysis of the Carrera GT, including brakes, engine and body.  They also want the experts to help determine speed at the time of impact.  Our sources say they're also interested in the tires, and at least one is available for analysis because it was not completely destroyed in the fire.

TMZ broke the story, the L.A. County Coroner determined Walker died from a combination of impact and flames.

The Porsche experts will be working with Sheriff investigators to make an attempt to determine a clear cause of the crash.

I hear they're bringing in a spontaneous human combustion expert to determine why... Oh wait he just stopped smoking, and I don't mean tobacco. Are they also bringing in Mormons to posthumously baptize them?

They are doing what any good family of a famous person would do... trying to cash in with a wrongful death lawsuit. This, despite the fact that they were going at least 50 miles over the speed limit. It's just got to be someone else's fault, right?

I'm glad they're carrying out further investigation, for the family's sake. Also, if it was mechanical failure and something wrong with the Porsche, it's knowledge to other Porsche Carerra owners.

Get over it TMZ. As if Porsche is the only car company to ever do such an investigation in a high profile wreck.

I wonder if Paul had been an unattractive nerd if they would still try to cash in?

The car wouldn't have wrapped itself around a tree if it wasn't speeding.


Why do the cops, at this point, need to know that something probably broke on the car and caused it to crash?


Is someone suing someone else? Will I get credit for breaking the story if this is true?


TMZ Take a break. Chase another ambulance and let these two guys RIP.
