Magnus Walker talks Porsche turbo cars both old and new

Magnus Walker is a man who has some insight into Porsche ownership. The long-bearded one has owned and driven many a German sports car. His current fleet includes a wonderful 1975 Porsche 930. Walker wanted to see how far Porsche has come with the Turbo so he took a drive in the hills in the latest and greatest.

Here are his thoughts on the 20201 Porsche 911 Turbo S:

The best part about this video is the cinematography itself. Whoever flew the drone deserves a raise, because those are some fantastic visuals. This was created by the team helmed by young talent Cameron Thuman. We’ve featured his work here before and we’re interested to see what else he cooks up in the future.

  1. 1) The video is totally, utterly devoid of any information.

    2) Gosh darn golly, rich people with stupid expensive toys are just so @&#$ing cool. (yawn…)

    3) If some tool leaned up against my car’s fender wearing a metal-encrusted jacket like that, there would be words.

    1. A few years ago, I had never heard of Magnus Walker, but his name popped up when I was looking into Singer Porsches. He seemed to carry the reputation of a classic Porsche authority, and I thought perhaps he was a former racer or something. Researching his background turned up very little of substance. He knows his Porsches, but other than getting lucky with money in the fashion industry, he’s just a guy who loves cars and has the expendable income to invest in them. He seems a decent guy and I respect him as an enthusiast, but I don’t value his opinion any more than those of the contributors and commenters here on Hooniverse.

  2. That MW became such a media “thing” is probably not due to a master plan to become an “influencer” – he did his (costly) stuff and didn’t hide it, and people went batsh*t about it. More like an “affluencer”?

    I’d guess it’s rather coincidence that his “bastard-ish” stuff showed up ~ten years ago when the first affluent 911-bubble people were becoming bored from collecting one 911 from each production year, and discovered that you could actually do have other people do sh*t to them – like-minded individuals like Dickinson (Singer) and Nakai (RWB) suddenly had a years-long backlog.

    What I am jealous of, a little bit, is his ability (probably from the fashion industry) to develop a look, and to translate that aesthetic idea into a (single) product/object. Many engineers (including me) can’t do that, they need “artsy” people for this who are experienced with shaping a vision into matter (or making engineers going their direction).

    And when you, financially independent and curious, are invited to car shows around the world, and eventually your favorite car brand chimes in and ensures that you’ll be eating and sleeping well – wouldn’t this be a cool opportunity?
