First off, my sincere condolences go out to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.

They truly were hallmark figures in the automotive industry-- but what a damn good way for them to go out. Somewhere on here I saw a sig quoting Paul saying that 'if he were to die from speed, it would be with a smile on' -- or something like that. And that is exactly what he did. He was having the time of his life, yes. But, it was in a Carrera GT :bow1: :bow1:

Per CNN:
"The Porsche Carrera GT the two men were in has three times the horsepower of the average car. It's powered by a V-10, 610-horsepower engine. At $450,000 new, it flies down the road and is notoriously difficult to handle.
A top driver has called the car "scary," Autoweek magazine reported.

PS: L4P member, plastique999 --- congrats on your new acquisition but, stay safe!! LOL ;)

Carrera GTs are the scariest thing next to a CCX.... Been in both, while being pushed....

as a driver coach I gotta say the left seat usually isn't the best one in the house.
