New legal documents obtained by TMZ reveal that Porsche employees hid emails from lawyers in Meadow Walker’s wrongful death lawsuit. In the email, a Porsche employee “gleefully” shared the news that Paul Walker had been killed while driving his Carrera GT, totaling the car. The email suggested that one less of these “rare” vehicles on the road increased their value.

Via TMZ:

One of the lawyers for Paul’s daughter was reviewing company emails on his office computer that were heavily redacted. The lawyer was shocked when he reviewed the same emails on his iMac home computer and found he could see the portions that were not visible on the office computer.

Among the emails from 2006, an employee wrote as many as 200 of the 1280 Carrera GTs which Porsche had produced had been “totaled” in the first two years they were sold… 2004 – 2006.

The Porsche employee who wrote the email goes on to say, “This would be great news to the remaining owners as the GT becomes more rare.”

The employee also told this story … “Another Carrera bites the dust as a bodyshop mechanic who claimed he was going less than 30 MPH smashed into a telephone poll. Looks like he was going more than 30 to me!”

Another email from a different employee says “This is in the back of my head every time I get behind the wheel of one of these. It’s just hidden behind the shit-eating grin!”

TMZ reached out to Porche for a comment, but they have yet to respond.
