Paul Walker’s Porsche Carrera GT Was Going 93 mph on Impact

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has determined that the Porsche Carrera GT in which Paul Walker and Roger Rodas died was travelling at 93 mph in a 45 mph zone at the point of impact. The rate of speed was determined using surveillance videos and electronic data retrieved from the car’s computers with the help of the carmaker. No technical issues were found with the car but it was still on its original 9-year old tires. Porsche Cars North America issued a statement in which they say the "vehicle had been altered from its original design state and had not been maintained properly" but "there is no evidence of any mechanical malfunction."

Porsche Carrera GT owners do not change their tires for 9 years, really?!
