As many things that come from Japan, Rauh Welt Begriff (RWB) bodykits are not for everybody, but those who appreciate them enjoy fetish-like benefits after fitting their Porsche with such apparels. To make things even more extreme, RWB only works on old Porsche, where that rear-engined feel is stronger than anything. We are here now to give you a taste of what the Porsche scene in the Land of Rising Sun looks like.

It all comes thanks to the adjacent short film, simply entitled “Life is too short to drive boring cars”. This naming statement is as truthful as possible, since the RWB treatment only makes one of the spiciest driving experiences even hotter.

In this case, we are talking about a 964-generation Porsche 911 Turbo, an air-cooled piece of Zuffenhausen from the early 90s. In stock form, this car is anything but forgiving and yet when you hit that legendary Porsche handling balance, you instantly feel flooded with emotion.

While we shall leave the footage, which is just over one minute, work its magic on you, we want to talk about Rauh Welt Begriff a little bit.

RWB is the brainchild of Akira Nakai and, at least visually, this is one of the most extreme Porsche tuners in the world – that title probably goes to companies like Ruf or 9ff when talking technical matters. Still, RWB can also touch the tech side of the machines it plays with.

Going further than the part that meets the eye, we can, for example, mention that Nakai-San likes to use his own finger to apply sealant on the custom body parts, in order to perfectly fill in the panel gaps. Now that’s something to think about as the tail-happy character of this 964 Turbo comes alive through the bends.
