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.

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


TMZ did no such thing.


TMZ put out three different stories. They took guesses as to what happened until the report came out.


TMZ publishes contradicting versions for the hits. When it comes down to it, they don't have a single clue.

One of my favorite ruse is when the cops set out to blame the "speed bumps"-in other words for those who needs dots connected--if the speed bumps hadn't been there Paul would not have died when SPEEDING over them.

IT'S ALL ABOUT HOLLYWOOD EXECS RECOUPING THEIR MONEY FROM THE INSURANCE THEY TOOK OUT ON PAUL--AND THE COPS ARE THE EXECS' AGENTS IN PULLING OFF THE PLAN.

Eric in L.A.    

Such a waste of time and money to investigate this car accident. They sold so few of these cars (1270) because they cost $440,000. If you want to blow a half a mill on the car, go for it. You know they are just racing cars that are street legal. Not safe to drive on the street at all. Stupid is as Stupid does.

To my understanding cars sold in North America require bumpers that can take a hit up to 15 MPH, without major damage to the car itself. The speed limit where the Porsche crashed is 35MPH. Does this look like a 35MPH crash? Cause the tree does go to the windsheild! Sorry but the sudden stop as a resault excessive speed IS the only factor here. If you need to hear the same thing but in a German accent, wait for Porsches "I told you so", due shortly.

i bet the "expert" will say they were driving TOO FAST for the setting. Technical failures are insignificant at this point. for a car to almost split in 2 indicates SPEEDING

Would the police have taken such an interest if the accident involved ordinary citizens like Joe Smith, Anywhere, USA???
