Magnus Walker’s Porsche 924 Carrera GT: The Unloved Outlaw

Magnus Walker is more than just a well-known figure in the air-cooled Porsche world, but it would be wrong to assume that’s all he’s interested in. So rather than joining him for yet another jaunt in a naturally aspirated rear-engined machine, this week we’re focusing on a 1980 924 Carrera GT. One of just 406 produced, Magnus has added his own stylistic touches to this box-flared beast, which he describes as a unique but similar driving experience when compared to the 911 platform. It still lives up to the badge on the hood though, and he explains the challenges and rewards therein as we take to the elevated Angeles Crest Highway above the city.
