RWB

This Rauh-Welt 965 Turbo is Punk Rock Perfection

The natural path of car ownership for an avid VW geek begins with a Golf and ends with a 911. Brian Scotto is no different, and after saving, selling some stock, and reaping the benefits of the housing collapse, he made a white 965 Turbo his very own. Being a man of style and taste, he used his vast network and contacted a man whose become something of a rock star icon in the world of Porsche tuning. Akira Nakai, better known as Nakai-San, is the man who took Scotto’s Porsche and molded it into a road-going racing car with more attitude and presence than a GT2 RS.

Though the wings, loud paint schemes, garish brand names, and impossible stances are what most think of when RWB, it’s all the little details and hints of character that make them such unique creations. In Scotto’s case, it’s the strip of amber rust on the hood, the mixture of Japanese and German tuning influences, and the choice of colors— »cocaine white and blood red »—that make it special.

Big canards are almost ignored with all the other odd touches present.

More than just a fashion symbol, the 965 is appropriately fast for something with snorkels flanking the rear wing. With the help of BBi Autosport and an exhaust system of questionable legality, the 3.6-liter engine makes 400 horsepower in a progressive, manageable, un-widowmakerish fashion.

That shade of yellow, a little reminiscent of a school bus, seems out of place—and that’s part of the punk-rock charm of RWB cars.

It might not be everybody’s cup of tea. It might not have the congruence that the typical fan expects with a classy vehicle like the 965. Nevertheless, it’s a statement, a serious performer, and a inspiration for that penny-pinching high schooler desperately trying to graduate from his Golf GTi to a G-series 911.

This 964 Turbo RWB Has All Of The Show To Match All Of Its Go

With those unmistakable flares and outrageous aero pumping up this classic Porsche, it’s a feast for the eyes. There’s something about the RWB shape which is so outrageous and gaudy that the purists still give them an approving nod. Power one with a 3.3-liter mill from Japanese tuner Promodet, and the package is enough to make anyone with a drop of oil in their veins swoon. This monster, owned by Phil Morrison of Driftworks, is the epitome of JDM styling benefiting classic German engineering. The two go together surprisingly well.

The paint might be the most striking part of this beauty—though the perfect gaps, tasteful lip, and smoothed shapes are nice.

The engine sports plenty of Japanese tuner parts to make it unique. A Greddy intercooler, an HKS T04 turbo, an OS Giken clutch, and a classic Nardi three-spoked steering wheel are all brands and items familiar to fans of Skylines and Supras, but they are rarely seen on Porsches. With the JDM parts in place, the engine makes a healthy ~500 horsepower—possibly the perfect amount for a car like this—and a wide rev range to use said power. The combination of that responsive turbo, a two-step system, the massive rear wheels allows this Porsche to leap off the line like a scalded cat pushing 1.2 bar.

Though this smooth-fendered 965 isn’t a quintessential Nakai-san product without rough/ostentatious paint and Stella Artois stencils, the shape is unmistakably his. With a more subdued appearance—if you could call it subdued—than his other creations, this car almost looks like a factory racer shot with a coat of silver and softened for the street. Even so, those choice Japanese bits make this beauty truly unique, and it has to be said—I think I’m in love.

Those hips make many knees weak.
