To a Porsche purist this could be regarded as blasphemy, but the rise of Japanese tuner shops like Liberty Walk or RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (RWB) have been nothing short of amazing. And while it seems like these cars are more and more commonplace it’s do largely in part to others mimicking the style, as well as Liberty Walk now selling kits worldwide, but RWB is different. RWB still builds there custom Porsches by hand or more specifically by the hand of one man, Akira Nakai.
If you have never seen Nakai-san work there are numerous videos on YouTube showcasing his talent, but in short it’s him, a Porsche, a lot of cigarettes and even more amounts of raw talent. This 1991 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Targa is only the second he ever completed in the United States using his painstaking process. Painstaking for the owner as Nakai-san cuts away at the factory sheet metal, often times by eye to create his RWB Porsches. In addition to the signature RWB fender flares and badging, this 911 features 18-inch brushed bronze wheels by Floss Designs and a custom sound system. This classic and significant RWB Porsche is expected to bring in north of 100K when it goes to auction in Santa Monica this weekend.
