More information has surfaced regarding the car accident that took Paul Walker's life on Saturday with a new report that claims the actor's death car was deemed dangerous to drive. The maker of the vehicle had issued warnings to potential new owners when the car was first manufactured.

According to TMZ, they acquired a document that was sent to potential new Porsche Carrera GT owners that called the vehicle "very sophisticated," and said it was potentially dangerous if driven on the wrong terrain.

Most fans of Walker now know that the Fast & Furious actor died in a car crash when his friend's Porsche Carrera GT, in which he was the passenger, went through a pole and exploded over the weekend. As authorities try to figure out what caused the fatal crash, this informative report has surfaced, shedding some light as to what could have happened.

The warning from Porsche said that the car "is as close to a race car as we will ever get," and that it "has all the disadvantages of a race car." The manufacturer went on to say that the Carrera GT is so sensitive to road conditions it could not even "drive over a Foster Beer can that is lying on its side." The smallest of dents on the road could cause damage to the car and any pot holes, dips, ramps or any protruding objects could gravely affect the car's driving.

Apparently, the road on which the ill-fated accident occurred, was full of reflective dots, TMZ reported, which are no big deal to a regular car, but, to a GT they could potentially prove fatal if driven over at high speeds.

No cause of of the accident has officially been given, but police have said that speed was a factor in the brutal, deadly crash.
