    WHO IS…THE ‘URBAN OUTLAW’

       (1 review)
      Title: WHO IS…THE ‘URBAN OUTLAW’

     

    porsche-normal-2.jpg

     

    For those of you that don’t know allow me to introduce Magnus Walker and if you don’t know the man chances are you’ve seen his ’71 911T no.277 which has graced the covers of several Porsche magazines over the last few years. Like the R-Gruppe founder Cris Huergas before him Magnus is a marmite man… If you love early 911’s then you’ll either love or hate what he does. Either way his passion for Porsche and particularly his love for the 911 is plain to see but before we get into the cars let’s talk about the man.

     

    “Porsche collection – Out of control hobby” is where it begins (sounds familiar) and a forum thread posted on the “bird” gives us an insight into his collection of SWB 911’s from 64 to 72, it’s a great read, all 152 pages!

     

    “Out of Control Hobby”

     

    “Outlaw” is a fitting phrase he’s coined for his collection but what makes these cars special, what sets them apart is the single minded vision of their owner. By his own admission he’s “not your regular Porsche guy”. The first thing you notice is his beard and dreadlocks tucked up in a cap or oversized beany, The layered plaid shirts over jeans and boots is total rock’n’roll and the sparkle in his eyes when he talks about his cars is that of a man living the dream and sharing his passion. Born in Sheffield he went to the states in ’86 and ended up in LA forming his fashion label Serious Clothing in ’94, setting up shop in the Arts District of LA, the rest as they say is history.

    His goal is to have a 911 for every year of production between ’64 & ’73, he currently has ’64, ’65, ’66, ’68, ’69, ’70, ’71 & ’72 and each one is unique. Magnus has built what he would call “street-able, track-able, hot-rod cars” and there is no denying it, all his Outlaws are fabulous cars created from period shells and a pursuit of perfection that isn’t comparable to the regular “factory stock” approach. But let us be clear these are not “backdated” 3.0 SC’s or Carrera 3.2’s these are authentic period 911’s. Although they’re not “matching numbers cars” each one is tuned, beautifully finished and crafted by Magnus. The attention to detail is inspiring, the gradual addition of elements to give each car a unique personality and character is what sets them apart but most importantly these aren’t museum pieces, these cars are driven.

     

     

    Of course that’s not the whole story… Now Magnus is suffering from a condition that some of us have experienced Turbo fever. Now we all know that there is only one medicine to reduce the burning all-consuming desire… But Magnus has taken it to the next level and has 4! Three from ’76 & one from ’77 all 3 litre non inter-cooled cars, one of which was the first registered Turbo Carrera in the USA. As you would imagine these cars are also stunning and some have signature ‘Magnus Walker 911’ elements, rather than ramble on I’ll let him explain in his own words…

     

     

    “G.O.A.D” is an acronym we’re going to adopt at CaymanOC if you haven’t guessed what it means yet then Magnus can enlighten you, it’s simple;

     

    “Get out and drive”

    Saw this in the CABO UK Facebook group just now and thought it looked a lot tidier than most at that price if there's anyone out there looking.

    PDI - Porsche Design Innovations Custom parts

    Hi everyone,    Having lost my job (professional car designer) due to Covid19 I've decided to focus on what I love doing and I'm passionate about and hopefully turn it into a business: designing custom parts for Porsche cars starting with the 987 platform initially.   The idea is to have a UK based business without the need to import from other countries, but equally I'd be happy to ship anywhere in the world. For us here in UK I see not may options and more importantly they

    PCM 3 bluetooth query

    Hi The telephone stuff all works fine, but is there a way that when my phone is paired with the PCM and I have a podcast on my phone that it can stream itself through the car hi-fi, ditto for the Google Maps voiceover on my phone..... I can't quite work out what buttons/settings to press. Best regards Julian

    First engine fault scare

    PSM failure Start stop disabled Engine light came on Running rough, no power   Oh no,  this sounds expensive!!!   Off/on and all seemed ok until a few miles later and same again.      6 new coils later and all good.   2 had failed,  1 was intermittent and one had faulted in the past.

  • Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th
