With so much in the tenth edition, from Magnus Walker embarking on his club Porsche dream; to a stopwatch that made racing history; an island that is home only to a single Porsche; the famous Fetzenflieger; and to Porsche pioneer Herbert Linge, the 9:11 magazine is certainly unique.
Magnus Walker’s dream
This Porsche enthusiast first encountered a 911 in 1977, at the age of ten – and he’s never forgotten that moment. We follow Magnus Walker back to his roots in Sheffield, as he takes a journey of self-discovery.
This stopwatch made motorsport history in 1977. Close to the end of the race in Le Mans, and with just five cylinders on his Porsche 936/77, Jürgen Barth taped the timer to the steering wheel. Twelve minutes later, he crossed the line in first place.
With its 35 km², Norfolk Island in the Pacific Ocean belongs to the smallest islands of the world. There are hardly any roads, a speed limit of 50 km/h, but a single Porsche within a radius of 1800 kilometres.
The unconventional design from an unconventional racing driver: the Fetzenflieger and Otto Mathé. These names together made headlines in the 1950s and 1960s. The fire for the Fetzenflieger still burns today.
A Porsche pioneer
From mechanic and development driver to head of the factory: Herbert Linge, who company patriarch Ferdinand Porsche and his son Ferry met in person, is more than an all-rounder – he’s a Porsche pioneer.
