An Insane Time In a 575 hp RWB Porsche 993 Turbo!

Nurburgring Thriller

Watch A Legendary RWB Porsche 993 Turbo Rip Around The Nurburgring

We just found this awesome video of an 993 911 Turbo built by none other than legendary Japanese tuner, Akira Nakai. RWB Porsches are revered as handcrafted one-off masterpieces, but the footage from this video proves that they aren’t just about looks. In true RWB (RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF – which translates from German as ‘Rough World Concept’) fashion, it has massive fender flares, widened tracks front and rear, and a slew of bodywork modifications to make it stand out. It started out as a regular 993 turbo, with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six producing 402 horsepower. This one has been tuned, with 964 intake manifolds and Garrett GT2860rs turbos enabling it to produce 430 hp and 391 lb-ft. It was also set up for race track use, as Moran Gott, the driver and a professional racer, mentions that it had tuning by Team Schirmer to eradicate understeer.

According to Gott, the car was a bit of a handful. “This car has so much feel and involvement for the driver to enjoy, but was tricky to drive with a bit of understeer so we took it to Tom at Team Schirmer and he transformed the car! The only down side were the tires that were old compound Pirellis meant for road use” he said. He holds nothing back, going all-out on the famous Green Hell despite being on street tires and driving a nearly 30-year-old car. He doesn’t post an official time, but it’s worth noting the 993 Turbo has previously set a time of 8:12.00.
