1968 Porsche 911 – Magnus Walker build

Back in October we featured one of Magnus Walker’s cars, a 1977 Turbo Carrera, that garnered quite a bit of appeal given the mileage and overall condition. That build mostly held true to the original build and character of the car, restoring it to driver-quality shape rather than turning it into something else entirely. On an early 930, that sort of build makes a lot of sense. Here we have another car built by the Urban Outlaw, though in this case it is being sold by the current owner rather than by Magnus himself. This is a 1968 Porsche 911 whose build in 2009 was inspired by the 911R, an ultra-light-weight high power 911 that was intended to help Porsche meet homologation requirements in 1967. With a 2.2 liter flat-six tuned to S specifications, which I assume means it is putting out around 180hp, and less than 2100 lbs to move around this ’68 911 should be a very capable performer and with the short wheel-base it likely will make for some very exciting driving. Oh, and it’s Tangerine so obviously I could not turn away.

This 911 has been in Mexico since 2010 and has not been driven more than 2000 miles, it participated on the Hill Country Rally on 2013 and has been pampered always. It has the original title with Magnus Walker’s name on it, and it has Mexican papers also. It can be delivered in Laredo Texas at no extra cost.
The car runs and drives perfectly, it has not been hit or misstreated, it is perfect, as it was when we first bought it in 2010. It looks as if it just has been restored.
The car is actually in Mexico, 3 hours away from the Texas border.

Like with most modified 911s, Magnus’ builds won’t suit everyone, but he’s developed quite a reputation as a builder capable of producing fantastic cars to be driven whenever their owners might please. His cars are definitely not intended to spend their time in a collection! I’m not sure what a good price for a car like this would be, but there has been a lot of bidding already and the auction currently sits at $80,100 with the reserve unmet. I’ll be curious to see how high it might go. Any SWB 911 is quite valuable, and Magnus’ cars tend to fetch pretty good value themselves so even a modified 911 like this one will bring in a good price.
