Paul Walker Paul Walker's last words before his death were: ''Let's go for a drive.'' The 40-year-old actor died on Saturday when the Porsche Carrera GT he was a passenger in smashed into a tree and burst into flames after he and friend Roger Rodas, who was driving, decided to go for a short drive at a charity event. Roger was in the middle of parking the vehicle into a bay when Paul arrived at the fundraiser at high end car shop Always Evolving - which Paul had a stake in - after one of his employees was having difficulty backing the car into the store. When Roger took the wheel, the Fast and the Furious star went up to him and asked if they could go out in the Porsche as he hadn't driven in it yet. Paul's friend Jim Torp said: ''Roger backed it in to the garage and Paul jumped in and said, 'Hey, let's go for a drive'. So they went for a little drive and this is what happened.'' The Porsche was a mangled wreck following the fatal accident, but Jim admitted Paul ''had to die this way'' as he was such a huge fan of fast cars and spent a lot of his movie career acting in them on the Fast and the Furious franchise. He added to the New York Daily News: ''It's strange. [Walker] made his movies. He lived his life and he died fast and furious today. He loved speed, he loved cars, and he had to die this way. He died in a very fast car with his friend.''

    I'm sure his last words were "OH SH!T!!!"

    I'd like to bet that during their 20 min ride they switched drivers and it was really Paul that was driving and lost control.

    The claim that they lost steering is pure garbage. Even if they lost all their fluid they would still be able to turn under manual arm power. Non-mechanics need not guess as to what happened!

    Brent I'm sorry to inform you but even if Paul did take the wheel he's no dummy behind the wheel. his own Nissan Skyline GT-R that he used in F&F 2 was his personal car. and the Skyline requires ALOT more talent to drive then a porsche Carrera GT which infact should stick to the road as if it was glued. The more I see the videos the more inclined I am to think that something went wrong with the car. they were 2 professionals on a near straight road.For it to jump a curb and not flip over & I might add it hit the bottom of the tree. I'm finding it a little hard to beleive the tree so close to the street if it was a hi-speed impact the car would have left the ground as soon as it hit the sidewalk like 10 feet away. There's more to this then just poor driving skills and I hope they are still able to get to the bottom of this with what's left of the scene.

    My 2 cents.
