Porsche meets rock ‘n’ roll thanks to SharkWerks and 911 guru Magnus Walker
Magnus Walker’s life of personalizing Porsches may be even more interesting than the vehicles themselves, but we’ll get to that in a second. His hobby of restoring solely Porsche 911 sport coupes has turned into a full-blown career as he’s become one of the most sought-after Porsche restorers in the world. And this title, of course, has brought his creations onto the set of “Jay Leno’s Garage” more than once, the most recent appearance being a collaboration on a 2008Porsche 997 GT2 with Alex Ross of SharkWerks.
But back to Walker. A few decades ago, the Englishman moved to LA to set up a fashion label but instead became a restorer of 911s. At age 10, he fell in love with Porsches when he attended a motor show and his affection for these epitomic roadsters hasn’t waned. He restored his first Porsche 911 back in 1992 and sold it for amere $12,000. Now his creations are going for upwards of $300k.
Watch Jay gawk at the Walker-Ross lovechild — before he puts the pedal to the metal — in this recent episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage”:
