1995 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe Rauh-Welt Begriff

Porsche design can be funny sometimes. Generally, their designs are modern and purposeful, yet understated. This is something that I think has become especially true with their modern cars as they’ve established themselves as a luxury brand. Porsche even could be said to be a fairly staid company catering to an equally staid clientele. Yet, that is all a mask of sorts. Porsche is, as much as any other company, one built off of its racing history and successes. The designs of their racing cars are about as preposterous as they can get filled with huge wings and impossibly wide rear fenders, though all were built to a specific purpose and as wild as they might look they were functional. Of course, plenty of their road cars followed suit, if in much more reserved fashion. Within this over-the-top world exist a variety of tuners and few tend to take the design aesthetic of Porsche’s racers and run with it better than Akira Nakai and Rauh-Welt Begriff. The one we see here, in Guards Red and using a 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Coupe as its base, is even over the top by RWB’s standards. The double-decker wing has the look of a dragon’s tail and stretches your gaze in a manner perpendicular to the stretch of the rear fenders. Some RWB cars can look very squat; this one does not. Not at all.

One of the criticisms we frequently see of RWB’s designs is that they are generally all for show. The mechanical alterations are minor – well, outside of the suspension changes necessary to fit the design aesthetic. The engine remains that of the standard 993, but with a few bolt-ons. The interior, of which we don’t have any photos here, follows a typical racing ideal and probably lessens the weight slightly, but really these cars are all about the looks. Is that a problem? Maybe, but in a world where even your most basic sedan has more power than is actually usable in a road car, I’m generally fine with designs like RWB’s that work in a direction entirely focused on appearance, even if the look it emulates is that of much more powerful race cars. They’re interesting, well made, and filled with impeccable details. On some cars the designs don’t work, but those utilizing the 993 have tended to show excellent execution and wonderful lines. Like them or not, and many don’t, RWB has a following that really enjoys its machines and will spend the money for such hand-crafted design. The one here, with an asking price of $175K, is priced above even the high prices we typically see for a RWB and I think it’s unlikely we’ll see it sell anytime soon, even given its uniqueness. These are expensive cars – when they come up for closer to $100K then they can sell pretty quickly – but I don’t know if people will be willing to pay this sort of price given their lack of performance upgrades. But you never know. As time goes by and RWB becomes increasingly recognized and as the price of a 993 continues to rise, then we may begin to reach this sort of demand. Right now, I don’t think we’re there.

  1. It looks comical. I would rather build a car that actually goes fast then one that looks like it does. Who would drive that on the street?

  2. I’m strangely attracted to this four wheeled crazymobile, mostly due to thoroughly enjoy reading Engrish. I wouldn’t call this an amusement on the lack of other cultures’ command of the english language; rather, a humorous window in to the absolutely bonkers culture that is modern day Japan. T-shirts, packaged goods, the odd 80’s microvan, usually emblazoned with some literal translation of a Japanese concept, makes me think “what does this even mean in Japanese?”.

    Taking the art of the literal translation into the German language takes this to a different level. Not only is this 911 an outrageous visual package, the words and concepts imprinted thereon puts this in its own sphere of crazy. Akira is a craftsman, no doubt deserving of recognition, but this…this is just nuts.

  3. There is one thing RWB apparently understands better than most other tuners: It’s not a true penile compensator unless the rear wing extends above the roofline.
