RWB Building a Porsche 911 Tribute to 917/20 Pink Pig Racecar in Australia

Japanese tuner Rauh-Welt Begriff is famous for its 911 wide body kits, which take retro Neunelfers so far in terms of appearance, that it’s impossible to mistake these cars for anything else.

These aerodynamic armours are the work of Nakai San and the man always bring something fresh under the spotlights. We were starting to wonder when he’d hit again and now the man is working on a new Neunelfer that will take the flat-six world by storm. The vehicle is due to hit the streets in September, so it’s till a work-in-progress project. We can show you an image gallery that reveals the 911 in its current state.

We are talking about a 911 from the 964 generation, which seems to have received the RWB fat body panels as extensions of its factory styling cues.

The pink hue used here, as well as a part of the design influences, are a nod to the infamous Porsche 917K/20 Pink Pig.

The iconic Porsche racecar’s porcine look was owed to Porsche commissioning SERA, a French aerospace engineering firm, to rearrange the aerodynamics of their 917K racer. Once the machine was ready, Porsche appreciated its efficiency, but didn’t fail to notice its resemblance to a pig. Thus, the entire body of the car was marked using the German names for the traditional cuts - it's a Porsche thing, you have to understand.

Martini, Porsche’s traditional sponsor, even refused to have its name displayed on the vehicle. They still honoured their sponsorship deal for the monster, but without the branding. But enough with the racecar's description - you can see the voluptuous Porsche at the end of the gallery below.

We’re not sure whether this RWB 911 will borrow the complete livery, but our bet is that it will. Until we find out, you can see the man himself molding the car into shape in the gallery below.Rauh-Welt Begriff has now landed in Australia
It appears this 911 was created to mark the birth of RWB’s Australian arm and we can only be happy Down Under drivers can no wear such extravagant aerodynamics. We feel this is RWB's interpretation of the Porsche 911 50th Anniversary edition.
