Urban Outlaw

I forget where I first came across the work of Magnus Walker — perhaps Top Gear? A LA transplant from Yorkshire, UK he’s turned his obsession and passion for Porsches into a fully fledged business.

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.

This film is a fascinating insight into his work and his car collection. If cars aren’t your thing the California scenery is equally breathtaking.
