Magnus Walker is a bit of a personal hero of mine. He’s a British clothing designer based in the USA who has an unbridled passion for old, air-cooled Porsche 911s. He’s owned over 40 of them and once a car has been owned/modified by him they become known as “ex-Magnus Walker 911s” – which significantly increases their value.
Magnus himself seems almost bemused by this and always comes across as an intelligent, unassuming man who likes fast cars and would probably rather to just be left alone to race them.
