Inspiration

Amazing. We *will* own an aircooled 911 someday.

URBAN OUTLAW is a portrait of Magnus Walker, the rebel Porsche customizer who turned a hobby into an obsession, and an obsession into a successful business. From a workshop in downtown Los Angeles, Magnus obsessively harvests fragments from donor 911s, grafting them onto vintage frames to create one-off automobiles with the spirit of Ferdinand Porsche but an ethos entirely his own.

  1. Thanks for the link guys. More good Magnus stuff coming up. Did you download my Total 911 article which I posted on his blog. A good read for sure..

    Keep up the great work/website!

  2. That video almost brought tears to my eyes it was so awesome….

    Is it just me, or are we witnessing a “petrol-head renaissance”? Everywhere I turn (on the interwebz) I see awesomeness…

    • There sure is plenty of awesomeness out there, but just as much rubbish (more?), I’d say.

      You are welcome to bring said awesomeness to my attention at any time, by the way. It is always appreciated ;)

  3. What a fantastic video. The camera work and editing are top notch, as are the man and the cars.
