The true genius of Porsche’s new GT3, the second coming of the model on the 991 platform, is that even a master will never fully exploit it. That’s the trait that defines the GT3, not just among Porsches but among the world’s best drivers’ cars. As a result, it engenders fascination like almost nothing else.

The belief was that, because Hernandez died before he was able to finish the appeal of his 2015 murder conviction in the Odin Lloyd trial, a legal principle known as “abatement ab initio” would apply to his case. It would give his lawyers the opportunity to vacate his conviction, which would essentially allow for him to die an innocent man and allow for his family to go after the money that the Patriots and NFL refused to pay him after he was found guilty of killing Lloyd.
