That sounds really cool!

I had an E46 B3S which was a lovely car, engine and suspension wonderful.

The rear lights are common on 911 hot rods (as in pic) but he's definitely taken it to another level with blending them into the metalwork. Wink

The engine sounded very nice ....... Smile

Big fan of Jethro, along with Chris Harris probably the best motoring journalist out there. Here's an Evo piece he did with his thoughts on the (stock) 993 back in '06: http://www.evo.co.uk/porsche/911/8051/porsche-911-carrera-2

the 993 brigade are already overjoyed at having a beautiful, powerful, generally oil leak free, modern suspension set up car as it is lol

Always good to see stuff like this.

Of course we have our very own version of Magnus on here, in Chief.

The car was too slammed for my personal choice.

It's very hard to take the prettiest variant and make it better, and he hasn't. He has tailored it to his personal preference.

Love that car, its the small touches, that make it. The wheels are spot on, and the vented wings.

lucky escape, the back slid out around that corner. That classic SL got pranged as well...

As for the outlaw style, its very mar-mite, not quite my cup of tea but i've always been understated!

Big fan of Magnus walker, love the car but as jethro says I'd have the car half an inch higher on each corner.
Agree with badlands above the written and video journalism work by both Harris and Bovingdon are always worth tuning in to.

Had a quick chat to him a couple of years ago when he organised a meet up in Sheffield, he's a genuine Porsche enthusiast with his own take on things.

He was very interested in all the people and cars that showed up, just seamed to want to learn whatever he could

While not all the mods are to my taste but I respect his passion and focus

Magnus Walker does seem to be one of those people who polarises opinions. So much is said about him, for and against, that it comes as a really nice surprise to see him in a video like this, as a genuine Porsche nut and someone I would like to meet. I love what he does to the cars, no half measures and attention to the details that matter to him. He has a great business model too, for taking clothing or cars and adding value. He certainly understands his market.

Has there been any news on the 227 car? I had rather hoped that it would get resurrected in some form

I think this car looks fantastic, the absolute business except for one clear exception
-the silly grills on top of each front wing.....they look gormless and Magnus should have known better.....

They're my favourite bit Embarassed

Loads of work to press those in. Also love the fuel cap revision.

rear lights .. homage to the 1967 911R's rear lights

Personally don't like them
