Walker's estate filed the case to get the vehicles back last year.
Paul Walker’s estate reached a settlement to take back control of a significant portion of the late actor’s car collection. Richard Taylor worked at the Valencia, California, warehouse where Walker stored over 30 vehicles, but Taylor allegedly took at least seven of them within 24 hours of the star’s death. He also reportedly had the Certificates of Title for 18 vehicles in the collection.
The settlement’s exact terms are confidential, according to The Drive. However, the lawyer for Walker’s estate confirms the agreement gets the cars back. It’s quite an impressive collection, too, including a 2011 Porsche GT3 RS, 2008 BMW M3, three examples of the 1995 M3, a 2004 GMC truck, and a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria.
Walker's estate filed the lawsuit last summer to get the vehicles back. The family alleged that Taylor hid the cars after Paul’s death. He reportedly attempted to extort money before returning them.
Walker died in 2013 while riding with friend Roger Rodas in a Porsche Carrera GT. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported the supercar was traveling 93 miles per hour (150 kilometres per hour) at the time of the crash. In April 2016, the court ruled that Porsche was not at fault for the accident. Following his death, the estate privately sold a portion of his extensive car collection.
