New Rauh-Welt Begriff Porsche 911 Being Sculpted in Los Angeles

An important part of the Porsche fan base will be thrilled to find out Los Angeles is blessed with a special presence these days. We're talking about Akira Nakai, who is hard at work sculpting his next project.

If the name above, or the Rauh-Welt Begriff project, which is Nakai-san's pride and joy, don't ring any bell, you should be prepared to have your mind tested.

That's because Japanese tuner RWB builds some of the most extreme Porsches out there. Wait, that description doesn't do RWB 911s justice, so we'll try another one - RWB Porsche are the most popular eccentric-looking Neunelfers the world has seen.

While these extra-bold body kits don't build themselves, they don't come from a team of craftsmen, either. Instead, this is mostly a one-man show that sees Akira Nakai turning to rather basic materials such as fiberglass and sealant to reshape Zuffenhausen machines.

The man only works on air-cooled Porsches, such as the one we have here, but it's not like he needs to expand his business. Imagine this as some sort of Cirque du Soleil for Porsches and you'll get pretty close to the aura of the machines we're discussing here.

You see, over the last few years, RWB has seen its business explode, with Nakai-san flying all over the world to build one project after another.

As we mentioned in the intro of the story, this man creates more than eye-catching 911s, as these cars see small communities being born around them.

And thanks to the powers of the world wide web, these communities have formed one global family of Porsche lovers that share a passion for all-out custom projects.

These images serve as a taster for a Porscha that will soon adorn the streets of LA, joining other three or four RWB machines in the area.
