Wingless 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Looks like a Rauh-Welt Begriff 911

When we first came across these photos showing a wingless 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, we felt a spark of sweetly exaggerated Zuffenhausen styling, but at first, we couldn’t put our finger on it. Nevertheless, a few extra moments of staring helped us make the connection - this Neunelfer reminds us of the Rauh-Welt Begriff kits.

You know, those extreme wide bodykits that come from Japan and make retro Porsches look like they’ve been abducted by extraterrestrials and forced to wear suits that come from another galaxy.

We’ve always wondered how an RWB kit would look when wrapped around a modern-day rear-engined Porsche. However, we only had to rely on renderings so far, since the Japanese tuner only works on air-cooled 911s. This aftermarket developer is actually a one-man show. The company’s founder, Akira Nakai, flies all over the world to install these crazy kits, which require cutting into a car’s fenders.

Nevertheless, given the generous size of the 911 GT3 RS wings, these easily stand out once that not-exactly-shy rear wing is removed. Since the massive wheel arches are the centerpiece of every RWB kit, the connection is facile.

Fret not, Zuffenhausen fans, this GT3 RS won’t fly off the ‘Ring, the rear wing has only been removed in order for the rear wing struts to be finished in matte black - they came in silver, with the owner willing to keep the Ultraviolet Blue and Black color theme. In fact, you'll be able to see the track-savvy Porsche in complete form in the video below.

How did we find out about this Porsche? It’s simple - the story comes from a 14-year-old kid. The teenager has multiple accounts where he likes to share the automotive adventures he enjoys together with his dad. Yes, the father owns quite a few special edition supercars, including a Lamborghini Aventador SV, among others. Speaking of which, we’ve included a photo that shows the wings of the two delicious machines in the gallery below.

P.S.: Those of you who haven't been following the RWB story can check out the second clip below, a brilliant documentary on the topic.
