Paul Walker’s 16 Year-old Daughter is Suing Porsche for his Accident

 

Meadow Rain Walker, Paul Walker’s sole heir to his estate, is suing Porsche over the accident that killed Paul in a Carrera GT in November of 2013. She is claiming that the car did not come equipped with such safety features as stability control, reinforced doors, and fire-resistant fuel lines among other things.

How many different ways do you have to spend that lottery money?

Badass Vehicles, the World of Mad Max

What do you need to face a cruel, man-eat-man world? An awesome, rusty, spiky set of wheels, of course!

In a post-apocalyptic world, one man and one woman stand up to an evil warlord, chief of the Warboys. Their mission; cross a gigantic desert with the bad guy’s former female captives, called the Five Wives. Will they succeed? You’ll need to head to your local cinema as of May 15 to know, but in the meantime, let’s appreciate their pretty badass cavalry.

Tesla Will Sell you Used Cars Too

Is Tesla the new Craigslist? Okay, maybe not.

In a discrete effort to be even more awesome, Tesla has taken yet another step into controlling (very well) how their cars reach their potential customers. They now have a certified pre-owned program that allows you to buy a used Tesla straight from their site at a much reduced cost but with all the benefits of a Tesla quality-controlled and warrantied product.

All of Tesla’s pre-owned vehicles are stored at Tesla facilities, which means that they might have to expand their storage capacity at some point. You won’t be able to inspect the vehicles yourself, but at the same time, you won’t have to deal with crummy used car dealers either. At the time of this writing, I’m seeing Model S P85 models starting at $75k-ish with just a scratch over 40,000 km on them in the Montreal area, a great deal for such a vehicle. All cars undergo an extensive 214-point inspection to ensure “like-new condition.” An appealing option for cars growing more and more in appeal each day.

Doesn’t Matter if You Outbid by a Dollar or a Mile, Winning’s Winning

…But is it more than you can afford, Pal?

Turns out something was fishy, and it wasn’t the tuna.  Everything you know was a lie. That 2JZ was non-turbo, parts were not overnighted from Ja-pan, the only Ferrari to be beaten was a 208, (maybe) and those two bottles? The Big Ones?  They’re Nitrous Express, not NOS, and they’re not hooked up to anything anyway. What I’m trying to say is that Brian O’Connor never delivered a 10 second car.
