Blue RWB Porsche 993 spotted in Vegas
RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (RWB) is a famous Porsche tuner based in Japan and has opened its US Operations in California. The first American RWB Porsche 911 baptized Pandora One got world famous partially thanks to the 2011 SEMA Auto Show. Being a fan of Nakai-san’s work for a while now, I’ve always wanted to see one in person and meet the star.
My trip to Las Vegas started with the Gumball Rally, then a drive to LA for the finish line. We stopped at the Illest boutique and Rotiform’s headquarters, but we really wanted to visit the Fatlace Paddock in San Francisco. I truly wanted to see the matte green RWB up close along with the other rare item in their collection. With my luck, RWB came to me instead.
Saturday morning, arriving a bit late for the Wuste Mount Charleston Cruise meet up at the Palace Station, I spotted a blue Porsche parked on the side of the building. As I got closer, I knew what I was looking at, but could not believe it was actually there waiting for me. I spoke to Brian and Johnny briefly whom were the ones that brought down the car from San Mateo for the show. I was told that this Porsche was just finished being put together about a month prior and that it’s Nakai’s ride when he’s in the US. He named it “Чайхона N⁰1” after a bar he liked visiting when in Russia. I took some more photos and before I knew it, it was time to leave on the cruise to the mountain.
