Paul Walker's father filed a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche on Wednesday over the 2013 car accident that killed the Fast & Furious actor. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

The star's dad claims the Porsche Carrera GT lacked safety features that could have saved Paul's life.

The executor of his son's estate included items from other lawsuits Porsche is currently facing — including side-door reinforcements, a stability control system, and a breakaway fuel line to help prevent flames following a collision — which could have lead to his survival if the vehicle was properly equipped.

Most recently, the car company claimed Mr. Walker was "a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT," thus denying the lawsuit filed by Paul's daughter, Meadow Walker.

Meadow's attorney, Jeff Milam, slammed the statement and shared:

"If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming 'Fast and Furious 8,' and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored."

Porsche will undoubtably comment on this claim, so we'll wait for their response and bring you the latest.

This is both touching and fascinating.

After Paul Walker died in a November 2013 car accident filming Furious 7, director James Wan and the visual effects team were tasked with digitally re-creating the late franchise star in several scenes to complete the film.

Filmmakers didn't want to discuss which shots were which at the time of the film's release, as they thought it would be distracting.

But nearly two years after the star's death, the film's creative team at Weta has revealed out of the 350 shots they worked on, a few scenes in which that they had to re-create the actor were especially challenging to pull off.

Surprisingly, artists said that the fast-paced action scenes were the easier scenes to work on. Visual-effects supervisor Martin Hill said the toughest were:
