Is the Porsche Carrera GT Too Dangerous?
And blaming the driver. A little background. While not professional drivers Walker and the driver were on a race team together and did plenty of circuit races. The guy driving has a GT3 so is more than familiar with the class of cars in question. Each had many more hours logged racing than any pilot would have flying before being able to get his flight license. It's easy to blame the driver, and it could rightly end up that way. However, the question of whether the car malfunctioned or should not be considered street legal should also be asked. Point being, if you believe these guys had no business driving this car then nobody shy of an F1 driver should be able to by them, hence they are too dangerous to sell to the general public.
They had no business racing that car on a public road. If you want to race, do it on a race track.

How The Matrix Online Went Wrong
Yep, but that 1 movie consists of 3 parts:
1. Neo gets freed.
2. Neo gets training.
3. Neo beats the bad guys.
Hence "Trilogy", but strange to put a trilogy in one movie... ;)
