He was the subject of a short film called Urban Outlaw. He has been on Jay Leno's Garage. Twice. He even graced the cover of Road & Track in June. And after all of that, he appeared in a video by Hong Kong-based Silly Thing. So it isn't really surprising that Magnus Walker is at the center of attention in the latest video from XCAR, but it's surprising - and a treat - to see his mostly original Irish Green 1966 Porsche 911.

Powered by an air-cooled 2.0-liter flat six with 130 horsepower (more like 120 hp today, Walker says), riding on 5.5-inch wide wheels and turned with a wooden steering wheel, the little green 911 does represent some of the best aspects of classic car motoring.

Head on below to watch the long-form video on Walker and his Porsche, but if your time is limited, you're not missing much if you call it quits at five minutes – especially if you've seen his aforementioned videos before.

      I like Magnus a lot but if I hear the phrase "drilled door handles and louvered deck lids" and "personal touches" again I'm going to go screaming into the night.

      Blah, blah, blah. This guy is a little full of himself, likes his own voice.

        Yeah, I sort of got that too - not in the first vid though.

      I really don't care about Magnus Walker and his tiresome collection of Porsches.

      I saw Magnus at the Pebble Beach Concours this year. Interesting guy. He's certainly getting a lot of recognition. Good for him.

      Why are people fooled by an old junker. Don't look for illusions, look for real worth. Real excellence. This isn't it. Light weight aerodynamic fast electric drive is.

      Porsche needs to bring back the 914/6. I mean they've already ruined the brand pandering with family-friendly touring wagons and hatchback sedans. Porsche needs to re-introduce an affordable sports car for around $29k and kicking at least 220 HP. Maybe even add some variants like a 914e and 914d. Currently, their "low-end" Boxster model starts at $50,000! And that's unacceptable.
