Rauh-Welt Begriff (RWB,) is one of the most notoriously successful, yet controversial, Japanese car tuners to exist today. With his army of modified Porsche 911’s, Akira Nakai has built a world famous tuning company-frequently circulating through automotive press giants like Speedhunters, Hoonigan, Illest, Fatlace, and Auto Otaku. From his first Rough World AE86’s, to Porsche 930’s, 964’s, and 996’s, many find his modification techniques to be…. well, rough!
Grab a Stella and your air saw, and sit back in your leather armchair, as James Pumphrey tells the story of the REAL Nakai san, and the history of RWB.
HUGE thanks to our friends Brian Scotto of Hoonigan, and Rutledge Wood of Top Gear USA, for introducing us to their sweet...sweet RWB Porsches. And to Dino Dalle Carbonare of Speedhunters, for hooking us up with the inside RWB scoop, and this spicy RWB Rotana image for our thumbnail.

RWB is like that really cool uncle that you never hear about or see but when you do he is just as cool as he was before.

Hey I’m that uncle lol. But I like the wide body. Maybe not a brand new Porsche and especially don’t mess with the 918 spider work of art. But yeah once styles change, I’m all for taking the old style and customizing it.

Nakai-san is like giving Porsche purists the finger with his RWBs and I'm loving it. It's your car. You're free to do whatever you want with it. No one has a say on what you should do.

herrwolken Vor 24 Tage
@Alfredo Ladinor "Rauh-Welt Begriff Sekund Entwicklung" means "Roughly-world term, second development" with "second" in the sense of time like "sixty seconds". "Rauh-Welt" could also be a "Roughworld ...", a world/planet made of "roughness". Yes, doesn't make any sense. "Rauh-Welt Begriff Zweite Entwicklung" means "Roughly world term, second development". I guess what Nakai-San wanted to express is something like "Rauhe Welt - Konzept. Stufe Zwei" so something like "rough world - concept, Mark Two". But as long as hard German words sound cool for you guys, I am fine with "Rauh-Welt Begriff Zweite Entwicklung".

That was very interesting, my son and i were at the debut of Nakai-San's first car built in Canada, Royal Ocean in 2013 and since have been to most of the builds in the Vancouver area. I am not a purist or a big Porsche fan but i enjoy the work of Nakai-San. There are a few purists here that have an RWB or two. Due to the Corona virus he has not been here since last December, he is a skilled and humble person. I have his autograph on many items including a lens hood on one of my Nikon lenses. I will likely never have the money to have one made but if did i would have him make a car for me too! He does like his Winstons, Coffee, Sushi etc it is always an event when he comes to town.
