Well, who would be hacking a pretty 911 964 Turbo up? That’d be Akira Nakai, the man behind RWB (short for RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF) who has been probably mastered the art of turning (slightly) undesirable 911s of the 993 and 964 types into beasts that tear up the race track while looking good (Quoting Midtown Madness 2's description of the Cadillac Eldorado ETC: “You can win while looking good!”) Of course, like most people, I’d love a RWB Porsche (a pink one would be a cargirl like me’s dream) But, sadly, for most of us, the price for one is out of reach. Instead of giving up my little dreams for a RWB Porsche, I decided to go with a obvious route: Scale models. With the Autoart examples priced above my reach, I looked far and wide for one that I can afford and thus came into the possession of the GTSpirit’s version of Brian Scotto’s Porsche 911 (964) RWB - The “Hoonigan” - Serial 1368 / 2000 (That moment when your brand director drives a better car than you. Yes, I’m talking to you and your Mustang Mr Ken Block). Let’s us first have a look at the model itself.
Like most resin models, the car weighs very little for it’s scale yet feels relatively soild. The base is pretty bland. It offers simple engine underside detail, a metal plate which the serial number is attached to, a GTSpirit logo and the name of the vehicle, simply written as RWB 964. The interior, like most closed models, is not carpeted but it’s not much of a concern. There’s glass on the gauges, well replicated MOMO steering wheel, nicely done seats with separate seatbelts. Overally nicely detailed interior. The exterior is nicely done and could rival AutoART’s examples without breaking a sweat. The glossy white finish is realistic as well as pretty durable and heat resistance (I live in a pretty hot place and the model holds up pretty well) The best thing about the model, in my opinion, are the wonderfully replicated Fifteen52 Tarmac wheels. (small fact: The wheels were custom made for the Porsche). The Idler tires are well done as well, which adds to the realisim of the vehicle. A good photographer can get the model mistaken for the real deal.
With that, I’ll leave some shots behind and end my post here. Thank you everyone and I hope you have a wonderful day~
