Rauh-Welt Begriff, it sounds like something German, but it’s actually the passionate work of a Japanese man named Akira Nakai. He’s built hundreds of these jaw-dropping Porsches, each of them by eye and by hand. They’re all unique.
This green RWB 993 was built by Akira Nakai here, in the Philadelphia area. His client, a young man who worked hard to save up to make his dream a reality, actually had him fly over from Japan and spend a few weeks building the car right in his family’s garage. The whole incredible build was documented in the short film below.
This is only the second RWB Porsche I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in person, and it absolutely stole the show for me at First Class Fitment this year. It is an incredible work of automotive art. It’s Thanksgiving day here, in the USA, and today I’m thankful for people like Akira Nakai, who use their deep passion to create such magnificent things.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Eat, drink, and be merry, but first check out the rest of this gallery, and be sure to watch the video.
