Rauh-Welt Begriff Porsche Cayman GT4: Sacrilege or Blessing?

If you're interested in more than just the market value of a Porsche, chances are you're familiar with Rauh-Welt Begriff. You know, the Japanese tuner who makes the most eye-catching Zuffenhausen machine-destined bodykits out there.

Now, RWB only builds kits for air-cooled 911s, but what if the aftermarket developer were to get his hands on a Cayman GT4?

Before we move on to answering the question above, allow us to stress the fact that we said "his hands" - you see, RWB is a one-man show that sees a man named Akira Nakai building these kits.

Over the last few years, Nakai-san has been flying all over the world, building projects and thus establishing RWB communities.

Returning to the prospect of an RWB GT4, this would be an opinion splitter. Sure, all RWB kits tend to have this effect, but when you're talking about playing with a car that only comes in about 2,500 units per year, things tend to become extra-sensitive.

We don't expect to see such a project being put together too soon, though. For one thing, Nakai-san works using his hands as precision instruments, while the kits are built from fiberglass, with plenty of sealant being applied to fill the gaps between the massive body elements and the vehicle.

Sure, this is a method that spells "art" rather than "fabrication," and yet its nature is much more suitable for older Porsches than for the surgical precision-built Cayman GT4.

Nevertheless, since there's something about the notion itself that won't let the wicked side of the autoevolution office get any rest, we've decided to bring you the rendering above, which comes from pixel master Jonsibal.

And since we're talking unique GT division Caymans, we're inviting you to check out this taxi-themed GT4 and this Acid Green-dressed example of the track-savvy mid-engined Porsche.
