RWB. RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF. ROUGH-World CONCEPT. Makes sense this insane thing is a concept somehow. I absolutely love this trend of over-fenders and pasta-pot depth rims, not that this car is logical on roads in any way but screw it, have a 1/18 RWB993 from GT Spirit!

Good ‘Ole 11 13 showed us the sister car to this one, in part 32 of his “The Great Outdoors” series. It’s amazing in purple, and I may or may not have that one as well...

Moving on...

I love this color, it reminds me of all the good things that ever happened, and blue skies, and puppies, and flowers laced with acid and cupcakes and Jello-O and candy. And with black wheels? woof!

I have something similar to this color in my current stable arrangement, with black wheels on the way actually.

If I may show-off for a moment:

Lets talk about those wheels for a moment. Both wheels and tires on this GT Spirit model are on-point with that manufacturers usual offerings, being they feature great detail on everything but the damned tire sidewall.

I can’t fault it that much considering the now-legendary Idlers logo, looking perfectly spray-painted, sits right about where RWB founder and living-legend-for-porsche-people Akira Nakai would have put it on the 1:1 versions. Love the aggressive pattern on the semi-slick tires as well.

I’m pretty sure he was trying to make a 993 generation GT2 Evolution for himself, and just kind of forgot to stop making the thing wider, the result of which is the prototypical RWB shape, available as bodykit with a waiting list and a need for a pretty deep wallet considering this is a late 90's Porsche under everything.

They’re great, but it’s a decision, that’s all I’m saying.

The RWB ethos build you a widebody Porsche with wheels, you need to provide the underlying Porsche, of course, ready with everything except the flares, bumpers, decklid, and wheels. This sort-of explains the tiny-ass exhausts on this thing; some RWB cars are really ‘all show and no go’ and that’s just fine in my book, with increased blandness in car design these days it’s a great thing to see some crazy come to light. have a look at this 755HP, AWD version monster.

Not all of them, thank the heavens, but some are just the perfect car show material and nothing else. How batshit-wide-and-low is it, you ask?

Don’t worry, I’ve already shot a ton for up-coming stuff with these two. and more!

This particular car, like most of the real-world RWB build that are out there, also has some tasteful interior upgrades in the form of comfy Recaro buckets with matching harnesses, a color-coded roll cage, handy fire extinguisher, and signature RWB deep dish steering wheel with yellow center marker. I love that last detail on this model. Not that I could really get a clean shot or anything...

Yup. It’s for what you think it’s for.

That yellow steering wheel stripe though....

The interior pretty much black-and-basic at it’s best, though that sort of is the best use of a resin-cast, isn’t it? A closed environment that isn’t the most interesting anyway, with 85% of the manufacturing focus going to getting the exterior and paint just-so. Doesn’t that make for your own personal car show material?

Not that I won’t be getting one of the upcoming AutoArts... but that’s my burden to bear.
