Paul Walker Crash

Cops Summon Porsche Experts from Germany

12/18/2013 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Why is it so hard to understand that a dumb guy was driving too fast and he lost control of the car? His fault, not the car's. Oh wait, someone famous died. There has to be more to it.

Fine. Now give it the fvck TMZ. Why not start yapping about Kim Kardashian already putting feelings of ugliness on her innocent baby? Oh sorry, Kris probably put her up to waxing the poor things eyebrows and we all know you bow to Kris.

Since Lindsay Lohan the world knows that Porsche cars are NOT foolproof. These cars have 'dangerous' breaks and engines, and if you are a stupid Hollywood moron who thinks he's a racing driver because he makes moronic racing movies, these cars might blow your azz out of the water!
NOBODY would care about a dead stupid Porsche driver, but if the douche bag is the movie 'star' Paul Walker, they fly in mechanics from Germany. This is so ridiculous.

lol. what they gonna find in that wreckage? nothing. the tires? the age. skid vectors. a hit mark from the curb. and dirt. nothing else. they could simulate the crash with all the surroundings, but do they know the speed? what did the driver do? gimmickery guessing. a lil LA for our porsche guys.

Good for the police - good for the family and friends.

Because it makes no sense -

Roger was a professional - and so was Paul.

Gratitude to the police for making this tough call.

Was hoping for this.

Go watch the video that was posted on Paul Walker's Official Facebook Page. His charity. That's what we should be talking about and focusing on. His life outside of Hollywood. His legacy will live on. R.I.P. Paul Walker. 👼
