Description for Porsche 930 1989

Akira Nakai of RAUH-Welt Begriff chose to name it "The Highest Star". The project began in June of 2016. It started with a 1989 Silver Anniversary Carrera edition. Then came a fresh 3.3L 964 Turbo engine. This RWB is a special collaborative project. Design and project management by Tate Askew of RWB Atlanta, body kit by Akira Nakai of RAWH-Welt Begriff, power by Chris Carroll of Turbo Kraft, touches of style and performance by only top names in the industry. This is a special 911 Turbo that was transformed from visions of the past into experience and technology of today. An amazing build with style and performance that will stand the test time!

This 911 is powered by an air-cooled 3.3L long block engine boosted by a custom-made center mounted turbo system with dual Turbosmart wastegates. The turbocharger is a custom-fit, twin-scroll, Honeywell Garrett unit. The AEM managed EFI power plant, with the right chemistry from Turbo Kraft, achieves 600HP. Inspiration for the turbo design and placement came from the 1974 "Baby Turbo" 2.1."There is nothing more spectacular than seeing the glow of the turbo and piping as the wastegates throw flames of residual fuel", says Lane Wallace co-owner. "It sounds awesome; it's easy to drive, it makes gobs of power, it's intoxicating", says Urban Outlaw, Magnus Walker.

The weight saving measures bring the car down to a mere 2400lbs, making it a rocket when combined with the awesome power. The 911 utilizes a custom coil-over kit for crisp handling, as well as a set of Brembo brakes to tame the 600 horses. "The Highest Star" wears Work Meister S1 three-piece wheels to go with the look and performance. This Porsche is made and wants to be driven hard!In true raw race car fashion, the Martini RWB is AC and radio delete.

Once you're inside and sitting on the Martini Recaro seats, you will notice the carbon roof, as well as the vintage Martini steering wheel. Nakai's RWB signature can be seen on the dashboard and custom gauges decorate the instrument panel with the RUF tachometer right in the middle. Other details include the Wevo billet aluminum shifter and 911 RS carpets.

Nakai's lightweight handy work is also visible in every corner of the car. The tasteful widebody kit, combined with aero parts at the front, and taller rear wing give the car its recognizable attitude. And of course, the subtle touch of RWB branded headlights are one of many special details.

The most prominent aspect of the Porsche's look, undeniably, is the Martini livery. Tate started with a Mercedes-McLaren silver, a great base to compliment the Martini colors. The branded livery itself is inspired in part by the 1974 "Baby Turbo" 2.1 livery, combined with elements from that of the '73 Targa Florio RSR.

Successfully modifying the magnificent 911 was no easy feat by any means. All told, the Porsche project dubbed RWB's "Highest Star" is amongst the most respectable builds in the country with no expense spared.
