Meadow also claimed 2005 Carrera GT, Paul was traveling in at the time "lacked safety features... that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash."

A rep for Meadow said: "It is beyond regrettable that Porsche is trying to deflect its responsibility by blaming the victim. The facts are clear: Paul was the passenger in a car that was not designed to protect its occupants, in a crash on a dry, empty straightaway in broad daylight and at speeds well below the vehicle's advertised capabilities." They added: "If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming Fast, and Furious 8 and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored."
