R.I.P. Mr. Walker, you will be missed. He was a good actor, but most of all he was a Gearhead, and when he talked about cars in the movies, you could tell he not only knew what he was talking about, but he loved what he was talking about.
And this only reaffirms the Carrera GT's reputation as a beast to be respected, even when you think you've tamed it. Afterall, a tamed lion is still a frickin' lion. Definitely my kind of car. Though, to be fair, a mechanical failure in the steering system is suspected to have caused the crash, not the nature of the car itself.
Also, is it just me, or are there a disproportionate amount of high-profile deaths involving Porsches compared to other sports car? A few years ago some rich girl drove her father's new Porsche into the side of a toll booth and got herself decapitated, then Ryan Dunn(of Jackass fame)took his last ride in a GT3(iirc), and now this. And let's not forget the most famous Porsche-related death of all: James Dean. Maybe I'm just showing my ignorance here, but it seems like rich people tend to die more often in Porsches than, say, Ferraris, Lambos or Aston Martins.
