The wife of a man who was driving a Porsche sports car that crashed and killed “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker is suing the automaker, alleging it designed a faulty vehicle.

The wrongful death and negligence lawsuit was filed yesterday in Los Angeles by Kristine Rodas, the wife of Walker’s friend and business partner Roger Rodas.

The lawsuit against Porsche Cars North America claims the company’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT suffered from design flaws and had a malfunctioning suspension that caused the November crash and both men’s deaths.

Authorities have cited unsafe speed as a cause of the crash. But Kristine Rodas’ complaint says her husband was driving the Porsche at 88.5 kph before the accident. An email message sent to Porsche seeking comment was not immediately returned.
