These super cars cut safety corners, something Mecedes is bitching about and struggling with - because they don't. BUT this makes even their super cars MUCH heavier. That Porsche GT was half a ton lighter than Mercedes SL65 Black series and many hundreds of pounds lighter than the McLaren.

    Except for the 928 and the other front engine Porsches, I've always felt rear engine Porsches are dangerous, including their tendency to understeer into a corner and oversteer out of it. But that just personal opinion. A rear/mid engine car does not need the center section rigidity of a front engine car (which has to deal with frame torque twisting a rear engine doesn't have to.) This tends to make rear/mid engined cars far more damaged in a side impact. There's not as much structure. Structure that would protect occupants. And fuel lines. The fuel line on my MB runs up the center of the car, with the driveshaft "looped".And it's steel braided - all factory done. A side impact would have to reach thru half way thru the center chassis, which has an internal carbon steel boxed roll cage.

    Porsches, more than any major manufacturer of super cars, tends to take a go-fast at any cost approach. Some Lambos are that way. Ferrari has always been fairly safety conscious. I saw an Ferrari Enzo that side impacted and it literally broke in half - completely. But the passenger compartment fully intact as a break-away safety box so-to-speak.
    Yep, noticed that about Porsche as well. Even the much cheaper Vettes are safer by today's standards, of course the Corvette needed a boost in PR after years of being known as a rolling coffin because of the fiberglass chassis with little safety gear.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    This thread is sickening. Some of the things I see idiots posting is absolutely asinine. A guy dies, leaves a daughter without a father, and the immediate response is partisanship or the always popular "well, it was his fault" lines. Get a friggin grip. If we are following the "it was his fault" line of reasoning, pretty much every death in the world could lead back to that.

That will be great comfort for all the relatives of the 34,000+ people who died in traffic accidents last year alone. They deserved it, according to you.

    You just lost more than a few credibility points around here.
    Where did she say he deserved it?

    I don't see why some pretty boy Hollywood star dying in a car wreck gets so much attention. In the last week we have had 3 deaths around here from icy roads. Who cares though, they were just ordinary people.

    Same here. The surroundings of that photo are nothing like the surroundings of the accident photo that was put out there yesterday.
