It turns out Jay Leno is as much a fan of Magnus Walker and his work as we are. The comedian and TV personality caught the Urban Outlaw short film online and gave Walker an invitation to stop by the Big Dog Garage with one of his tweaked Porsche 911 models. The designer brought out his 1971 911T for a closer look. The car is basically a streetable track machine, complete with Hoosier rubber. Walker uses the car to sprint up to Laguna Seca, crank out a track day and run back to Los Angeles, which means this machine is about as far from a trailer queen as they get.
Leno seemed impressed by Walker's creation, saying the 911T is remarkably balanced. Some builders fall into the easy trap of shoving ludicrous power into a classic car, but this old Porsche remains light on its feet with every horse accessible and usable. As if we need an excuse to love this machine any more than we already do. Check out the video below to see what we mean.
