If you’re an avid follower of the Porsche religion, you’ll undoubtedly know the name Magnus Walker. As a prolific figure within the classic European car community, Walker has made a name for himself as the “Outlaw” of Porsche customization, building and modifying vehicles with his own unique style. Now, he’s putting his 1972 Porsche 911 STR II on the auction block — a car that exudes his iconic influence.

The STR II found fame after being popularized via high-profile appearances on shows like Jay Leno’s Garage and Fifth Gear, eventually finding its way into online editorials, blogs, and even the cover of Road & Track. The vehicle was inspired by both the 1968 911R and the 1972 911ST — two of Walker’s most “influential” Porsche platforms — and calls upon the carcass of a 1972 911T to breathe life into the 275-horsepower build. The 3.2-liter engine is paired with a classic 915 transmission, alongside a period-correct black leather interior and modernized suspension system to keep the rubber on the road. Ventilated disc brakes, a limited slip differential, and Bosch mechanical fuel injection round out the handsome build. Should you feel that the 1972 911 is right up your alley, the car is available now with no reserve via PCAR Market.
