    If they were driving a WRX STI or equivalent AWD car they probably would still be alive, you would have to be the worst driver in the world to lose control of one of those.

      Jason Morale,
      "modern-day Jimmy Dean."???
      Jimmy Dean was a huge movie star. These guys only became barely well known as a result of this crash.
      Jimmy Dean was crashed into by another car on a remote highway, not into a building. Etc.

    0:45. Not that it would have made any difference but take a look at the steering wheel. Why didn't the air bag go off?

    • Frank Howard

      @ArcoZakus First of all, there's no reason to remove the air bags to remove the occupants. The air bags are inflated for a very short period of time, like 3 seconds and then they deflate. Second, when the air bag goes off, it comes out of an air bag housing like the center of the steering wheel. If you look at the wheel, the housing is still intact.

      Frank Howard,
      How do you know that the first responders did not remove the air bags to remove the occupants?

      None were "lost ... to Porsche".
      They were lost to their own errors in judgement, either in driving beyond their own skill level or in trusting someone else who did that. They could have survived in their Porsches but for those errors, or died in any other car instead -- as millions of other people have.

      DPImage Capturing,
      We all die. Having done a stupid thing or two myself over the years, I was lucky to not end up dead in my twenties. My sympathy is still not so much for the two guys in the car as it is for their families and friends who were not at fault. I know how that feels. I hope you never have to.

    It is amazing how people got these nice cars and just destroy them. And even lose their lives in the process. Muscle cars and stupidity don't mix.

      BayArea Kid,
      Some Porsche Boxsters are quick, but you're probably gonna' get a lot of blowback for referring to one as a "Muscle car". Just guessin'.

      What the driver did with it does not change what it is, which is NOT a "supercar".

    We should ban high capacity speed vehicles. For the public safety.

    • ArcoZakus
      ArcoZakus 22 days ago

      Bert Osterberg,
      Maybe we should ban people who want to ban everything.
      It would make more sense to limit their operation on public roads to people who have demonstrated that they have the skills and temperament to control them, like is done in most states for big rigs, and in some for motorcycles. I have not confirmed the statistics, but I'd bet that a lot more people die in minivans or SUVs or compact sedans every year. Ban them all?

      right, the media even has to "spin" this one, shameful reporting. 18 and you're an adult. Live or die with the consequences, the driver had many seconds of full throttle committed to his decision.
