Rauh-Welt is a Porsche customizing shop in Japan (and now the US) that creates some of the most outlandish cars you’ve ever seen. The signature touches on a Rauh-Welt Porsche are impossibly wide body kits to fit equally monsterous tires and double-decker wings out back.
The finished product is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it proposition, but there’s no doubt that it is always an attention-getter. Personally, we can’t deny that the cars look very racy, even if they may be a bit cartoonish. We just wish we could drive one to find out if performance matches the look.
The excellent Australian car culture website Downshift has a very good photo essay on one of the latest Rauh-Welt cars. This purple Porsche is named “Victoria” and will go to an owner in the Phillipines. The car started out as a fairly standard 1994 Porsche Carrera 2 993, and by the time it is complete it will be powered by a 550 horsepower LS1.
