Rauh-Welt Begriff Starts New Zealand Offensive with Dual Porsche 911 Build

The sheer idea of tuning a Porsche and playing with that balance Zuffenahusen has spent decades perfecting requires a bit of lunacy. But when that lunacy is part of a melange that also includes mind-blowing skills and artistic vision, we end up with memorable creations such as the ones delivered by Rauh-Welt Begriff.

The Japanese tuner has long broken the borders of its home country, with Akira Nakai, the one behind what is mostly a one-man show, now flying across the world to establish one new RWB community after another.

Yes, we mentioned communities, as Nakai-san doesn't just build Porsche body kits, he generates a spark starting the fire that brings enthusiasts together.

Once a new country lands on the man's map, RWB fans over there help the local community grow and obviously contribute to the global Rauh-Welt Begriff effort.

The latest project of this kind is taking place as you are reading this, with Nakai-san having left Los Angeles, the location of his most recent build, for New Zealand.

With the help of two facilitators, one of whom has spent years watching Nakai-san building his kits in Japan, RWB is kicking off its NZ offensive.

And what a debut this is - we're talking about a dual 911 build. As you can see in the images below, a pair of 993 Neunelfers is ready to have Akira Nakai create fiberglass body kits for them.

And if you're wondering about the episodes that take place as this story unfolds, here's a sample of how said facilitators view the man's work, "Wheel alignment time, front and rear fenders in place. The car is on the ground getting fine tuned. This guy is a machine!"

Truth be told, Nakai-san uses his hands as precision tools, turning air-cooled 911s into drivable sculptures. And it looks like these Kiwis are in for quite an artistic manifestation.

With the Porsches having been painted and gifted with eye-catching wheels, they are now waiting for Nakai-san to do his thing.

For now, we can give you a preview of the dual build, with the video and the image gallery below serving as a fine appetizer.

Given the speed that defines Rauh-Welt Begriff builds despite their unique character, there's just one question that remains to be answered here - what destination is written on Akira Nakai's next plane tickets?
