A car painted entirely in Mexican blue and finished to look like new

On 8 March 2024, a Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe by RWB was offered at auction in Dubai by RM Sotheby’s. The 911 Carrera featured in the auction was given a white body and customization after arriving in Dubai. The words ‘HIDEYOSHI’ were painted on both the left and right side doors, completed with dynamically shaped aero parts by RWB.

One of the cars created by RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF in Japan

More than 60 years have already passed since the Porsche 911 was born. The air-cooled models such as the 964 911, which was born at the end of the 1980s, and its successor, the 993 911, are already gaining in value as classic models. The 911 is now becoming more and more popular among all generations. This means that there is sure to be a great deal of interest in how they are restored or tuned.

The model presented here at the RM Sotheby’s Dubai auction is based on a 1995 911 Carrera and was finished in Iris Blue Metallic exterior livery and blue and grey interior at the time of delivery. It was shipped to Ohio, USA, and then moved to Florida, but found a safe home in Maryland with a new owner in 2006; CARFIX reports that during this time it was involved in a collision that caused minor damage to the front end, but after repairs, in 2016 it was sold to a collector in the United Arab Emirates and exported from Los Angeles in October of that year.

After arriving in Dubai, the model underwent a complete cosmetic refresh by the Japanese Porsche tuner RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF. Often referred to as RWB for short, the team has a history of drifting and racing in the past (the team name at this time was Rough World, the English name under which Rauh-Welt was formed). The shop was established in 1997 in Kashiwa, Chiba, by Kei Nakai, who is also known as BEGRIFF (BEGRIFF means Concept), and specializes mainly in classic 911s. He has a particularly strong passion for air-cooled 911s, and his work is always carried out stoically until he is satisfied with his own work.
