Magnus Walker Puts The Rinspeed Porsche 930 Slantnose Through Its Paces

Magnus Walker and Porsches go together like peanut butter and jelly (or ham and eggs, depending on your dietary preferences). The notable Porsche aficionado has collected and customized numerous examples of Stuttgart’s finest sports cars for decades.


A recently released YouTube video bypasses Walker’s passel of Porsches in favor of OPP (Other People’s Porsches). In particular, he explores a Rinspeed 930 Turbo slantnose owned by Beau Boeckman, from MTV’s Pimp My Ride and CEO of Galpin Ford. Rinspeed launched this Porsche in 1985 to much fanfare and enthusiast interest.

“It’s an evil, bad-tempered bitch of a car and I love it,” he said, handing over the key. “It’s also hot as hell inside, but you’ll love it.”

I’m using both “hot rod” and “outlaw” here because there’s no official agreed-upon definition for either when it comes to Porsches. “Outlaw” originally applied to modified 356s and was later appended to modified 911s, but in between, they were simply called hot rod 911s. Some outlaws are primarily visual modifications, while others have mechanical upgrades. This one has both.

The Dutch mechanic who built the car backdated the car visually as much

When Porsche was in financial turmoil in the early 2000s, they were looking for some brilliant ideas to save the business. The term “Sporty SUV” arose when the German luxury carmaker decided to bring in new elements to make an impact on the company.

The BMW M3 xDrive and Porsche 911 featured in this video are both modified German cars with six-cylinder engines of similar power, a pair of turbochargers, all-wheel drive, and automatic transmissions. However, that doesn’t make them direct competitors by any stretch of the imagination. After all, we are dealing with a sedan equipped with a front-mounted inline-six going up against a coupe featuring a rear-mounted flat-six.

Modified by Manhart, the M3 Competition with AWD now makes a healthy 630 horsepower from its S58 engine compared to the standard twin-turbo 3.0-liter rated at 510 hp. As for the Porsche, it’s a

Porsches are unequivocally the greatest sports cars on the planet. Whether it’s a 911 or a Boxster, or Cayman, you won’t be disappointed if you’re a driving enthusiast. But what if you were to take what this German brand has achieved and dial it up a bit? Let’s say you add wider wheel arches, new headlights, or even a louder exhaust. No matter the size of the upgrade, it can be a pleasant breath of fresh air to see a Porsche that’s been pimped up.


With millions of them out there, it would be a shame if they all looked
