The Details:

  • Based on the Porsche 930
  • Debut of the Work Meister M1 wheels available next year
  • Built in three days

Yes it's true trends come and go and there are occasions when it can last a mere month. The true challenge for any tuner is to build a car that will stand the test of time such as Mugen's NSX RR, Top Secret's V12 Supra, the Amuse S2000, and Mines Skyline. But there's one Japanese tuner who has caught our attention more than just once and that is Porsche visionary Akira Nakai of RWB or Rauh Welt Begriff.

He's been hired all over the world to put his extreme styling on Porsches and while it's only been about two years since his RWB cars debut at SEMA, his trend of wide body flare and deep-dish wheels is still in full effect. His latest build is his personal 1989 Porsche 930. We asked Nakai-San why he chose purple for his new car and he simply said, "I like purple." To avoid further language barriers we asked Mark Arcenal from Fatlace for a breakdown of Nakai's new personal car.

Nakai gives every car he customizes a special name and Mark says this one is called Battle Knight "super old school" which means rough world before roots of rough unity. The rear spoiler is an OEM Porsche wing which Nakai calls a "super whale tail." The wheels are 18.x10.5 in the front and 18x13 in the rear Work M1 wheels that aren't event released until next year. The interior is kept basic with a pair of Recaro seats, Takata harnesses, and a Personal steering wheel. For now the engine is kept stock except for the M&K exhaust system. For that perfect stance Nakai went with KW coilovers.

"This is the first 930 that RWB has built in the U.S.," says Mark. "Nakai finished this car in three days."

Nakai has built so many cars for different purposes, and this specific one is a more street friendly variant. This is one trend that's here to stay.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019.

Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
