Magnus’ exact net worth is not known but we can guess that he’s worth tens of millions of dollars. Even in his early career, he was earning $2000 a weekend from his customized pants business.

By the early 90s, he and his wife had built a multi-million dollar business and his designs had been donned by superstars like Bruce Willis and Madonna. 

He could earn millions from his customized Porsches but he maintains that modifying Porsches is only an “out of control hobby.”

A native of Sheffield, England, Walker became fascinated with Porsches when he went to Earl’s Court Motorshow in 1977. At ten years old, he wrote a letter to Porsche, asking for a job. Surprisingly, the company replied and told him to contact them once he had finished his school.

He later moved to the United States and started his career in designing. But, he remained a Porsche fan and  bought himself a 1974 Porsche 911 in 1992. He has been collecting Porsche cars ever since.
