The Urban Outlaw Porsche 911s are well known amongst enthusiasts for their distinctive designs. Designer Magnus Walker has now put his own car up for sale
Magnus Walker is very well known in Porsche circles these days for tastefully restoring and modifying classic 911s. The British-born Magnus found fame as a clothing designer after emigrating to America in the 1980s. His love of Porsche lead to collecting vintage 911s and then adding his own personal design features to make them unique. One of his most famous Porsche pieces is now for sale in our classifieds.

This car has been something of a poster child for Magnus’ restoration and modification services called Urban Outlaw. It has featured in an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage and several other TV shows, made the cover of Road & Track magazine, as well as appearing in the popular Need for Speed video game franchise. Looking at its distinctive details it's easy to see why it’s so popular.
The car began life as a 1972 Porsche 911 T, but Magnus transformed it into what is now known as the STR 002. According to the advert this 991 was selected due to its rare external oil filler and hardy 915 gearbox. The originally blue car was stripped down before becoming something of a 911 greatest hits album. You’ll find Turbo fender flairs and 911 R inspired indicator lights on the STR 002 — both favourite models of Mr Walker. The lightweight motorsport theme continues with fibreglass bumpers, drilled door handles, louvered engine cover and plexiglass. A set of gold Campagnolo-style Group 4 PAG alloy wheels completes the look.
Inside you’ll find a period-correct roll bar, Recaro rally seats and Schroth harnesses. However, it’s the little details that make this interior special. Intricate chrome work trims the gauges, drilled floorboards, a Racemark steering wheel, Heuer clock, and a wooden gear knob inspired by the Porsche 917 racer.
In the rear of the car is a 3.2-litre flat-six derived from a 911 SC-sourced 3.0-litre engine. It was modified by Porsche specialist Rennwerks and is now good for 275bhp. The car was completed in 2013 with Magnus extensively documenting the build processes involved.
Magnus Walker rarely sells his own personal 911s, so this 1972 911 STR 002 Urban Outlaw is likely to be highly sought after. It’s currently listed with Autosport Designs with price on appointment.

Model History Like other manufacturers, after World War II Fiat continued producing and updating pre-war types. The first blank sheet design was the 1950 1400, the first with unibody Fiat, which took the place of the 1935 1500.
