The Porsche Carrera GT earned some notoriety several years ago when it figured in the tragic death of actor Paul Walker. If you’ve been living under the rock, Walker was an actor who shot to fame as the star of the street racing movie franchise “Fast & Furious.”
On November 30, 2013, Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. His race car team partner was driving the cart when it slammed into a light pole in Santa Clara, California, around 30 miles north of Hollywood.
The car instantly burned into flames, killing one of Hollywood’s premier actors.
The accident that cost the life of Walker put into the spotlight the difficulty of driving a Porsche Carrera GT. In fact, even professional drivers are known to have troubles driving this sports car.
