By now, any Porsche fan not familiar with Magnus Walker is either living under a rock or intentionally avoiding him. While we’ve heard from a few who aren’t fans, most we talk to, like us, really love Magnus. He’s fascinating, genuine and generous. To date, most everything you’ve seen on Magnus focuses squarely on his Porsche collection, his customization techniques and why he loves the Porsche brand so much. What you may not be familiar with is his full background story. How did he get his start in business? How does he afford his Porsches? Where did the money come from? What follows is the fascinating story of how a young boy from Sheffield, England became the owner of not one but three successful business ventures in L.A.
The beginning of the video is a bit of Magnus’ background that many of you might be intimately familiar with. If you want to skip to the “meat”, simply jump to around 19 minutes in and go from there. Fair warning, this video ends about 45 minutes in and then they want you to jump to another web-site (and register) to see the rest of the video. It’s very much a pain in the ass, but worth it if you’re interested in the rest of the story.
