Those of you who follow tennis know that the Sony Open kicked off in the Miami a couple days back and will run through March 30. All the big names are on hand to compete for the top prize, which currently sits at a cool $787K.

Needless to say, you can bag a few souped-up Porsche Panameras for that kind of dough! Obviously, Maria Sharapova can spend the cash on other luxuries considering Porsche probably hooks her up with at least a few cars cars from their entire lineup. I’m gonna assume that Maria looks like a 911 Turbo Cabriolet type of chick, but I’m sure she owns a Cayenne and Panamera for those times when she needs a little extra space.

Paul Walker’s Death Car a “Batshit Crazy Car”

“Porsche test driver Walter Rohrl told the Australian website Drive that the GT was ‘the first car in my life that I drive and I feel scared.’” [THR]

 

The car in which actor Paul Walker was killed last weekend is getting closely scrutinized by the media, uncovering what is apparently a dangerous reputation for being, well, exceptionally dangerous to drive (and sit in).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Porsche sports vehicle runs about $450,000 and is equipped with a V10 engine and 612 Horsepower. It was retired from the Porsche lineup in 2007. And it’s known for being exceptionally difficult to control:

“The Carrera GT quickly developed a reputation as a car for skilled drivers only, Patrick George, of the auto enthusiast website Jalopnik, tells THR. Jeremy Clarkson, the host of BBC’s Top Gear, once described its handling as ‘knife edge’ and that if the driver makes a mistake, It bites your head off.’ Jay Leno, a collector of high-performance sports cars, famously spun out in a Carrera GT at high speed in 2005 while attempting to set a speed record at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.”

A lawsuit involving the death of California driver in a Carrera GT in 2007 was settled for $4.5 million. No word yet on whether Porsche will be held liable in the two deaths this past weekend (but we wouldn’t bet against it).

Jerry Seinfeld was spotted grabbing coffee with one of his friends in the Hamptons yesterday afternoon. After chatting it up outside on a bench, the comedian was seen cruising away in his sweet-looking 1957 Porsche Speedster (also known as a Porsche 356)! You gotta love this dude’s life!

The guy has a net worth of roughly $800 million, so it’s no wonder he doesn’t know how many cars he has stashed away at his various properties around the country (and world). $800 million!! Since when do comedians earn that much money?! Frickin’ crazy!

Here’s more about the ride from its Wiki page:

The Porsche 356 is an automobile which was produced by German company Porsche from 1948 to 1965. It was the company’s first production automobile.

The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive.

Chris Brown Goes On An Abusive Sugar Daddy Prowl in his Porsche 911 Turbo

The seemingly always-troubled singer Chris Brown was spotted cruising around L.A. with a friend in his Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. A couple days back, a Los Angeles District Attorney announced that he will be charged with a misdemeanor hit-and-run accident from last week. The bright spot about this latest announcement is that if convicted this dude might go to jail for up to a year. Very doubtful he’ll do anytime though.

Here’s more:

City attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says the charges filed Tuesday involve a minor accident on May 21 in the San Fernando Valley.

If convicted, Brown would face up to one year in jail.

Arraignment is scheduled for July 15 at the Van Nuys courthouse, but an attorney can appear on Brown’s behalf.

Mateljan says the county district attorney’s office will be notified of the charges and it will be up to that office and the courts to determine if the case will have any effect on Brown’s felony probation in the 2009 beating of singer Rihanna. (Source: USA TODAY)

The “Moneyball” actor was seen leaving the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood in his Porsche coupe. He appears to be all alone inside the car, but who really knows, right?

Up next for Jonah Hill is the apocalyptic comedy film “This Is The End,” which is a film co-written & directed by Seth Rogen. The film stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson as fictional versions of themselves. Judging by the trailer, the film looks absolutely hilarious.
