PAUL WALKERS DAUGHTER'S CASE AGAINST PORSCHE IS CLOSED




The devastating accident that cost Paul Walker his life sent shockwaves through the social media pages of overwhelmed and distraught fans back in 2013.

It is well known that a lack of a stability control was a feature of that particular model of Porsche Carrera and, due to the high price, it's target market was very limited and mainly consisted of buyers who aimed to use the car on the track.

With this in mind, Porsche limited the control features of the car meaning that the car was meant the be used at its full capacity on the track. However, on that fateful night, the driver, Roger Rodas, lost control of the car which smashed into a barrier and went up in flames.

Nearly four years after the accident, the legal battle between Walker's daughter and Porsche over a "wrongful death" case has finally been closed. The case claimed that the car didn't have the correct electronic stability control systems installed to prevent swerving actions as well as a faulty seat belt that may have trapped walker in the car while it was burning.

Although Porsche refuses to accept the blame, saying that the car is dangerous only if misused, they have paid a portion of the settlement to Paul Walker's daughter.

What's your opinion of that fateful night and do you think Porsche could be held accountable? Let us know in the comments below, and check out the video of when the story made headlines.
