Porsches have pretty good occupant protection. Lots of athletes don't wear seatbelts, Bobby Hurley was nearly killed in a traffic accident while not wearing a seatbelt.
It's hard to compare accidents, but I look at his car and think about Di's Mercedes, which was absolutely destroyed, way worse looking than the picture of that Porsche. There were 4 people in the Merc, and the only one wearing a seatbelt survived.
Damn, what a shame.
