Paul Walker’s daughter has launched legal action against Porsche almost two years after his death.

Meadow Walker, 16, has accused Porsche that their 2005 Carrera GT had design flaws that contributed to Paul Walker’s death in November 2013.

TMZ claims that the lawsuit suggests the Fast and Furious actor survived his collision with a concrete post and some trees, and was trapped by his seatbelt, which meant he was still alive when the car caught fire.

Police suggested the car, which was being driven by Roger Rodas, was traveling at 80-93MPH when it crashed, however these legal documents are reported to put the speed at 63-71 MPH.

Meadow's legal attorney, Jeff Milam, told TMZ: “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.”

Porsche have yet to post an official comment on the claims.

Meadow is now the head of the Paul Walker Foundation, a charity aimed at giving donations and scholarships to teens looking to work with the ocean, which was one of Paul’s enduring interests.


Launching the charity on what would’ve been his 42nd birthday, Meadow wrote on Instagram: “Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions.

“His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill.

“I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others.”
