Magnus Walker - Urban Outlaw

Magnus Walker has a unique relationship with the Porsche 911. Like many young boys, he was enraptured by the swooping form from an early age; Walker, however, has followed this through to an all-consuming 911 obsession throughout his adult life. The trailer for the forthcoming documentary, Urban Outlaw, comes with this blurb:

URBAN OUTLAW is a portrait of Magnus Walker, the rebel Porsche customizer who turned a hobby into an obsession, and an obsession into a successful business. From a workshop in downtown Los Angeles, Magnus obsessively harvests fragments from donor 911s, grafting them onto vintage frames to create one-off automobiles with the spirit of Ferdinand Porsche but an ethos entirely his own.

One to keep an eye on.
