Regret after selling a car is just part of our hobby. Sometimes we acquire too many projects, which takes attention away from family and friends. No matter what the case, it is always rewarding to find the car that you had to part ways with. Such is the case with Magnus Walker’s Slantnose 911. A slantnose was the ultimate Porsche 911 of the 1980s. It was an option package on the 911 Turbo, and highly desirable today.
In addition to the factory-built cars, there were aftermarket kits to transform almost any 911 into a ‘Flachbau’ (slantnose) . In the latest upload from Porsche Newsroom, we learned the Urban Outlaw’s first 911 was a 1974 slantnose conversion. He sold the car in 2000, and the memory of that gorgeous machine was burned into his mind. Finding one in great condition means spending a ton of money, so he has been traveling the world with one goal in mind.
Even considering the aftermarket kits, these cars are becoming very hard to find. Just when he was on the verge of giving up, he found another 1974 conversion in Los Angeles, not far from his home.
This retro ride has massive Group 5 headlights and a 935-inspired widebody kit. Eventually, it will receive a 500 horsepower turbo motor, and a vintage livery appropriate to the era. Click the link below to find your long lost 911, and stay with us for all your Porsche news.
