What If BMW Had Its Rauh-Welt Begriff?

Over the years, we've been amazed to see the overly close nature of the rivalry between BMW and Porsche. Last time we checked, the two German automakers generally played in different leagues of the premium car market.
However, due to the effervescent evolution the car world has experienced over the last decade or so, such conventions have been broken.

And since people have been comparing both the BMW M235i and the M2 to Porsche's Cayman, we thought we could take the far-stretched job and stretch it some more. The result is a rather simple question - what if BMW had its Rauh-Welt Begriff?

Don't pay too much attention to the tricked-out M2 in the image above. Sure, this is a superb rendering coming from British artist Khyzyl Saleem, but it doesn't fully reflect the concept here. Still, we have to applaud the pixel master for coming up with such visual pieces in his lunch breaks.

For one thing, RWB only works on air-cooled Porsches, so we'd need an artist who should make a name for himself by playing with Bimmers from the Golden Era. You know, the one that ended in the mid-2000s, when the Bavarians started switching the focus from sporty driving alone to a mix between this and comfort.

Another component that sets the Japanese Porsche customizer apart is that RWB is, mostly, a one-man show - we have Akira Nakai, who flies around the world to complete one build after another. The man uses his hands as precision instruments, coming up with fiberglass bodykits that get their final details with the help of sealant.

There are other JDM tuners that have made a name out of fitting fat wheel arches to machines ranging from sportscar to supercars, but RWB's story makes it unique. So why shouldn't BMW receive such a gift?
