This is the new RWB 993 Porsche built earlier last week by the one and only Nakai-San of RWB. The Porsche, a 993, was bought originally factory silver but was fully repainted and restored. The current green on the car is also a factory colour.
The process has taken a gruelling 6 months as everything on the car that could be updated, has. From the dash to the lights, ROTtec Carbon seats to the upholstery, nothing was left unturned. Before Nakai-San arrived, the car was restored to factory mint condition.
Nakai-San was in Manilla, Philippines before coming to Vancouver. He stayed a total of 4.5 days and worked on the car for 4 days straight from10 AM till 7 PM - if not later. After talking with him, when he first started building RWB Porsches, he mentioned that it used to take him 12 hours a day for a week straight. Four days is now the standard, and if needed he can rush the whole job in 2 full days. Nakai-san cut off all of the original wheel arches and installed his RWB wheel arches and installed the front bumper on the first day.
The second day was side skirts, front bumper sleeve, side skirt sleeves, and rear bumper. The third day was wheel alignment and suspension, spoiler, and front and side flicks. And the last day was fine tuning suspension and rear wheel arch flares.
Super Musashi is the third RWB in Canada. The first one being Royal Ocean in Vancouver and the second one being a red one (I believe it's red) in Montreal built earlier this year.
The last day he was in town he had a very early wake up call. His flight was to leave at 11 AM, however, there was a weekly Porsche drive on the Sea to Sky Highway en route to Whistler. The meet started at 5:30 AM right around the same time as when mother nature decided to let the rain pour. Nakai-San drove himself as well as the owner of the new RWB Porsche on the cruise which was in the neighbourhood of 30-40 Porsches. Nakai-San also did donuts as a farewell to everyone in an empty parking lot afterwards.
At the moment Nakai-San has a tentative 7 more cars to build before the end of the year. His flight was off to California to fix an RWB front bumper in preparation for SEMA. Unfortunately, Nakai-San will not be able to attend SEMA this year as he will be down in Miami building an RWB at that time.
As a fun fact, there are currently around 100 RWB Porsches in Japan, 70 in the rest of the world, Philippines being the country with the highest count- 17 RWB Porsches. US currently sits at 6-7.
Marcel and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to ROTtec Carbon as they were the ones to invite us in to shoot the car's build. They installed custom carbon fibre seats for the owner as well as provided the logistics to orchestrate the whole build.
