Paul Walker Sr. has decided to press charges against Porsche as he is accusing the Stuttgart-based automaker the Carrera GT lacked safety features that could have prevented his son’s death.

It was at the end of September when Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Rain filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche and now the actor’s father is doing the same thing. He says the Porsche Carrera GT in which Walker lost his life two years ago lacked safety features that could have prevented his son’s tragic death.

This is actually the third case against Porsche if we take into account Roger Rodas’ wife also filed a wrongful death claim. The lawsuit was initiated more than a year ago and Kristine Roads motivated her decision by saying “the Carrera GT was unsafe for its intended use by reason of defects in its manufacture, design, testing, component and constituents, so that it would not safely serve its purpose.”

We remind you Porsche declared a while back that Roger Rodas was the only one responsible for the accident in Santa Clarita, CA as he was doing 93 mph (150 km/h) in a 45 mph (72 km/h) area. In addition, the automaker previously mentioned the Carrera GT was “altered from its original design”, wasn’t “maintained properly”, and at least two of its tires were nine years old.
