Turbo Fever: Time For Tea?


Given that we're going to meet up with Magnus Walker later in the month this little vid is a timely reminder of why he's such a fixture in the Porsche enthusiast landscape.

And if the last vid in which he featured here on PH tipped a little into 'lifestyle' this one is purely about the cars. And what cars! A demonstration of what a bit of well-funded OCD can achieve, Walker's assembly of pre-intercooler 911 Turbos, each with a fascinating back story, is a hell of a line-up. And it's easy to warm to both his sincere love - and detailed description - of the driving experience and respect for the history and stories embodied in each.

Purists aghast at Walker's free-spirited approach to modifying his 911s can take heart that his Turbos - ride height drops and fatter rubber aside - remain standard. And that his passion for the cars remains as informed and detailed as ever.

Enjoy!

    930 = Good
    Turbo Carrera badge = not good.

    Pistonheads…When you meet up with him next month, just remember less chat and more driving.

    Somehow something about him just smacks me of trying a bit too hard really.

    Pistonheaders are already talking about it here
