It’s because this Candy Blue Porsche 959 (with a bite-your-tongue crimson interior) also serves as a direct tribute to Akira Nakai, the Japanese founder of the car tuning company RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (RWB). Yes, it’s the same outlet that focuses on classic Porsches that get widely infused with Euro and JDM elements to create a very distinct style.
In case anyone wondered how an RWB Porsche 959 might look, the answer to the question now comes in the form of an unofficial virtual derivation. It seems to properly tick all the right boxes, with a wide and low stance that scrapes the pavement while looking almost as broad as it is long. The huge dish-style wheels are obviously modified Rotiform BM1s and get neatly covered by equally massive fender flares.
By the way, although no CGI shots are provided with the dark-red interior, the burgundy shade clearly befits the image adopted by the project. Also, there’s no word on the heart and soul powering this widebody menace. Still, we can easily imagine that with proper TLC, any 2.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six would still do the trick for the 959 to once more exhibit supercar-levels of performance. Back in the day, it was good for 444 hp and took the Porsche to speeds of up to 339 kph (211 mph).
