Akira Nakai is arguably one of the most prolific Porsche tuners on the planet and is best known for founding the RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (or RWB – “Rough World Concept”) in Chiba-Ken, Japan, in 1997. Characterized by their ultra-rigid wide-body kits, RWB‘s dramatically modified 911 models have also inspired the latest digital design by Shanghai-based concept artist James Qiu.
This work, called “RWB964”, is based on the late 80’s early 90’s Porsche Turbo 964. The 911 has been completely overhauled by Qiu as an aggressive visual theme, combined with RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF‘s signature with a futuristic and Cyberpunk-inspired look.
Created using the Unreal Engine, the RWB964 has features like, RWB‘s signature sporty bolt-on fenders, Lexan racing windows, Good Year Eagle deep bowl racing wheels, speedster-style mirrors, full internal roll-cage, a pair of front fender-mounted LED spotlights, carbon fiber headlight arrangement, the hood, front splitter, rear wing, and side skirts.
Among the details that make this design ultra-unique are; horizontally mounted suspension setup, red LED strip lighting, the rear with the Le Mans style bumper bearing the 964‘s custom twin-turbocharger setup, exhaust pipes and other well thought out installations. The matte black and white theme of the 964, complemented by the exposed carbon texture, is almost like the cherry on the cake.
Whether designing cars or motorcycles, we look forward to James Qiu‘s next digital work based on the increasingly stunning quality of his work. For more information, you can check out the designer’s Behance profile.
