In recent years, few modification packages for the Porsche 911 have been more popular or spectacular than the widebody conversions from Rauh Welt Begriff. The small Japanese tuning house created a dramatic upgrade package that includes wider fenders, deeper spoilers, and giant rear wings. Each car is also hand built by RWB founder, Akira Nakai, and each gets a unique theme. In this instance, the donor car from 503 Motoring was renamed Samurai to respect its Japanese roots. The team at Borla Exhaust was thrilled to lend their expertise in crafting this beauty.
The build began in June 2017 when 503 Motoring announced it would partner with RWB. Other luminaries invited to the build party included Borla Exhaust and Vossen Wheels, among others. 503 diligently posted progress of the car, even broadcasting part of the build over social media and creating a spectator area for enthusiasts to witness the creation.
Akira Nakai flew in from Japan to install the pre-painted body parts piece by piece. Many of the car’s vital organs had been installed previously, including the KW suspension and stainless steel Borla exhaust system. 503 had insisted on installing the best parts available to complement the RWB build and Borla was a natural choice, not only for its incredible sound but also the OE-spec build quality and impeccable fit – its Million Mile warranty didn’t hurt either…
Once the lengthy build process was complete, 503 Motoring’s Samurai debuted at the Forest Grove Concours in Oregon. It was well received, to say the least, claiming the Commissioner’s Choice Award in the process.
Shortly after, Samurai trekked down to Pebble Beach for Monterey Car Week where it appeared on Cannery Row with a host of other supercars and classic gems.
Fans of the build can catch up with it in Las Vegas during SEMA week, and follow 503 Motoring social media channels for updates and appearance announcements.
