My Ride- Jermell Walker: 2000 Porsche 911


How do you pick a car? For Jermell Walker, there's only one way.

"The look. Always for the look," says Walker, who in the past jazzed around town in a BMW 740, but these days has eyes only for his black Porsche 911. Walker doesn't need to take his sporty car on long road trips to appreciate the way it handles– in fact, the farthest he's ever driven it is to Maryland. 

Despite his love affair with the Porsche, Walker's not a one-car man. His other ride, a Cadillac Escalade, is roomier for road trips, he says, but it can't beat the aesthetic and speed of the 911.
