When you meet Magnus Walker you instantly know he is passionate about the Porsche brand. He walked me around his collection animatedly discussing the different models he owns and why they are important to him. Each car has a character, or better yet a soul that is deeply connected to him. Everything Porsche is very sacred to him. It’s a religious experience sparked when he was just a 10-year-old boy exploring England’s Lincourt Motor Show. Walker’s father used to bring him to a lot of motoring events, but the one that sticks out most in his mind was when he first saw a 1977 930 Turbo.
One of many reasons why Magnus is the man & living in LA is awesome if you love driving.
Reading this interview with Aaron Paul made me think back to my stunt driver training this past August with a guy who actually worked on Need For Speed. I have high hopes for this movie as director Scott Waugh is a noted stuntman and thought it important to make a film that was “throwback to the 60’s 70’s car culture”.
