    That Porsche Carrera GT is no average 911 style car. It cost about 500 thousand when new, and was pretty much a race car for the street. The fact that is exploded upon impact ought to really create some concern about what could cause that to happen. I don't think the Porsche folks in Germany can be too happy that one of their state of the art cars blew up in a wreck. Even in 2005, so many safety features were built into cars of that caliber that having one perform like a Ford Pinto of the 70s doesn't make sense. I will really be interested to know how fast they were going when they hit that pole. Must have been close to triple digits. Hopefully we will get the whole story. Really sorry for those two who died. Shouldn't have happened.
