Car a few months ago Share Tweet Pin Share As a lifelong Porschephile, Magnus Walker is world-renowned for injecting his upscale punk-rock personality into his builds. If there’s a Porsche restomod god, Magnus is Her prophet—and his work basically sacrosant. Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ? That’s why it’s a big deal when one of the British polymath’s own prized Porsche-rod projects was recently released onto the market by its second owner. The STR II Outlaw Porsche 911, which he’d had in his own collection and in the rotation of regular rides until 2013, went up for auction online last week. The price of a piece of the Urban Outlaw’s personal history? A nice, round US$275,000 ($368,000, here), just a little less than the US$302,500 it sold for at Pebble Beach in 2013, when Walker let it go. Walker’s STR II is built on a 1972 911T, which was upfitted with a 275-horsepower 3.2-litre engine; a transmission pulled from a 915; an understated black leather interior; and enough suspension tuning to satisfy its exacting creator’s intention “to build a comfortable streetable race car with knife-edge handling,” as the auction site that sold it, PC Car Market, puts it. Walker has something of a Midas touch when it comes to Porsche, and he’s not exactly historically known to sell his own personal pieces, so the price probably fits. What’s more, the STR II was well known to the automotive world for years, with past appearances on Jay Leno’s Garage and Fifth Gear. How many other cars have television episodes attached to their pedigree?
