Los Angeles Porsche Club Mourns The Loss of Another Carrera GT, “Far Too Soon”

Poor car

The Greater Los Angeles Area Porsche Club gathered yesterday in a somber affair to mourn the loss of yet another Porsche Carrera GT. The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engined sports car that was manufactured by Porsche between 2004–2007 and sold for over $400,000 each. Sports Car International named the Carrera GT number one on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 2000s.

The 2005 Carrera GT in question was only 8 years old, “a mere lad”, and suffered its demise in a high speed wreck with actor Paul Walker and race car driver Roger Rodas.

Club President Al Bankston: “It’s really a sad day to lose another of these promising vehicles. It’s life was cut short far too soon. I don’t blame Paul or Roger. Sometimes these cars just accelerate to unmanageable speeds on city streets and lose control because, well, I guess they are still young and think they are invincible. I wish this one would have known to get help before it was too late. Sometimes I think we lose perspective and miss out on what’s important in life.”

Porsche made only a limited number of Carrera GTs and a decent number have already met their end way before their time, which makes last week’s crash all the more tragic.

  1. I’m in LA right now. When I go to sleep I always hear a few winding out mufflers every night. It’s like when darkness falls the dudes in sports cars come out. Thinking of joining in using my Dodge Dart rental. Yes, great satire here.

  2. Accidental deaths are tragic, but I’d guess this would be a lot different story if some kids or nuns were run down while they were out having fun on city streets.

  3. Great satire Eric on the overblown attention given Walker’s demise. Sheesh you would think he sat on the right hand of God, bumping Jesus from his seat, the way the media keeps pouring over him.
