According to Walker’s father, the missing features include the stability control system, side-door reinforcements, and a breakaway fuel line that could have prevented the car from catching fire after it hit the trees. Walker's daughter and heir, Meadow Walker, filed a similar lawsuit against Porsche last September.

Looks like Ian McKellen won’t be playing Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings anymore. In an episode of Larry King Now, McKellen did not hesitate to say that he is closing his doors to playing Gandalf the Grey after six films. “I think I’ve had it with Gandalf. Though I love going to New Zealand where they film it all, and they were great times. But I had about 15 years of it,” he said. The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, is McKellen’s final performance as Gandalf.
