Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has announced the Porsche Carrera GT in which Paul Walker and Roger Rodas lost their lives was doing 93 mph (150 km/h).

While autopsy reports were indicating the supercar was travelling at speeds in excess of 100 mph (161 km/h), it seems the Porsche Carrera GT was doing 93 mph (150 km/h) at the moment of impact. There weren't any technical issues with the car but the tires were nine years old and that was a contributing factor.

Aside from the tire issue, the accident occurred mainly due to excessive speed (45 mph speed limit in that area) and Roger Rodas' poor judgment. Porsche Cars North America issued a statement in which they say the "vehicle had been altered from its original design state and had not been maintained properly" but "there is no evidence of any mechanical malfunction."
