Porsche Responds to Lawsuit Stemming from Paul Walker's Death

Universal(LOS ANGELES) -- Porsche has responded to the lawsuit filed by the teenage daughter of Paul Walker earlier this week.

Walker was riding in a Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas in November 2013 when Rodas lost control of the car, which struck trees and burst into flames.

The lawsuit from 16-year-old Meadow Walker claims the vehicle had design defects, and that it was traveling 63 to 71 miles per hour when it spun out of control.

In a statement provided to Entertainment Weekly, a representative for Porsche says, “As we have said before, we are very sad whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities’ reports in this case clearly establish that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed.”

An investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol had concluded that unsafe speed caused the crash.

"The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn't belong on the street. And we shouldn't be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas," Meadow Walker's lawyer, Jeff Milam, told ABC News regarding the suit filed Monday in California Superior Court. The lawsuit does not state the monetary amount in damages being sought by the plaintiff.
