Legendary Porsche collector/restorer/modifier Magnus Walker — in Cincinnati last weekend for the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance — was reunited with his masterpiece 1972 Porsche 911 STR II that he sold a few years ago at auction to noted collector Bob Ingram from North Carolina.
The customized car is undoubtedly one of the most photographed 911s. It’s appeared on numerous magazine covers, including the June 2013 Road & Track issue commemorating the iconic model’s 50th anniversary. But the way Walker was taking smartphone photos of his once prized possession you would have thought he was seeing the car for the first time.
While not the typical concours patron — from the attire/appearance standpoint — the Porsche legend was quick to charm those in attendance with his engaging personality and extensive automotive knowledge.
In the following photo, you’ll see that Walker joined the paparazzi in snapping photos of the 911 prominently displayed at the base of the park’s cascading fountain.
Although Mercedes was the featured marque at the concours, many spectators hurried past several immaculate 300SL entries to check out the nearly 900hp Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid, another gem in The Ingram Collection. In the following video, Bob Ingram talks about his super car with members of the Youth Judging Program sponsored by Hagerty Insurance.
