Late Paul Walker's death was as a result of over speeding and not mechanical problems like was formerly reported. The driver of the Porche car, Roger Rodas was driving between 80 and 93 Miles Per Hour when he lost control and crashed, according to TMZ.

According to a source at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department - the agency that conducted the mechanics analysis - the crash was NOT as a result of mechanical failure. Speed was the trigger for the fatal accident.

Results from the ongoing investigation note that the tires of the car were the originals and were 9 years old. Investigators claim the tires had hardened, meaning it lost traction on the road which allegedly caused the crash. (Read the Report)

However, the car makers, Porshe had issued a memo to its dealers 9 years ago warning them the 2004 Porsche Carrera GT could be dangerous to an untrained driver. The memo said the road surfaces need to be smooth, like a race track.  The car is so sensitive, plus "This vehicle cannot drive over a Foster beer can that is lying on its side.”

During the investigation, German Porsche mechanics flew to L.A. to examine the car .... analyzing the Carrera GT's brakes, engine, body and a tire that wasn't destroyed in the fire.

Paul Walker and friend Roger Rodas died on Nov. 30 from a combination of harsh impact and fire burns.
