Numerous potential causes for the crash have been considered, including mechanical faults with the lively German supercar, but while we can't completely rule that out yet, it seems speed had an altogether more important part to play.

Excessive speed is the main cause of the crash, investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told Associated Press. They were unable to find any debris on the road that could explain why the Porsche GT crashed so violently.

One of the most publicized events in America, the death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker has caused a generation of street racing fans to morn. Hopefully, further light will be shed as to why the Carrera GT also burst into flames. Porsche engineers will come and examine the wreckage next month and should provide us with more clues.
