Most would never guess what this guy does for a living.....or how he makes his money.

Hints:
He isn't a CPA;
His drinking buddies include most heavy hitters from the rock-n-roll scene;
He shares a few thinks with Ralph Lauren

Seriously, this guy is badass and has a serious, hands-on collection not just limited to P-cars.
There are threads on his toy chest on Pelican, jalopnik, early911 etc. I love that he does most of the work on his car.

It's kind of funny - everyone else who wears his clothes on his site looks like a tool, but Magnus pulls it off.

I can't wait to see that film. It is true though. I just got my 356 out of storage after a year. Took her for a nice long drive and realized once again just how special these cars are.

yes, had my '95 C4 cab (64 K) in winter storage way too long this year; steering rack seals, & valve cover gaskets are pissed-off from lack of use…Porsches are made to drive..couldn't wipe the smile off my face driving through the rockies for a few hours... The good news is I get to spend a weekend off replacing the seals, detailing…something I enjoy almost as much as driving one…just takes more patience than working on the D-90.

'95 was a good year IMO. It probably has Varioram intake but doesn't have OBDII and those clogged secondary air by-pass ports to worry about. My '97 993 Targa is missed for sure, but watching the trailer for Magnus' film I really miss my '73 S.

I had a 72S for only a couple years. Can hardly look at an early 911 anymore. There's what seems like a decent original 73 T on ebay now that I'm keep an eye on.

yes, I have to admit that the '95 is much more comfortable to drive but lacks the original 911 feel...especially the C4. Never had the rear of the '78 end up in front of me in the blink of an eye, but felt on the edge...car seemed to laugh at my driving abilities or lack there of ...never had the opportunity to track...

Interesting video, so he owns serious clothing, I remember buying a silver metallic dress for my ex-girlfriend back in the mid 90's from Serious back when he was selling his clothes at redballs on melrose avenue.
