Hi All,

When I first joined JDMST, I wasn't sure how a Porsche modifier like myself might be received on a JDM forum.

Fortunately, I have found that most JDMST members are very open to learning from tuning methods applied to cars like Porsches.

I've always looked for ways to fit high quality parts from innovative original Japanese manufacturers to my cars, and loved the philosophy behind cars like this modified 993 ...

... which uses some HKS parts, but was looking for something in the Porsche world that is even more JDM.

I recently found an article by Ben @ The Real JDM titled "The Definition of Hard Core JDM - Porsche by Rauh-Welt" ...

It reads ...

"I’ve been collecting photos of Rauh-Welt cars over the past few months as I hold out for this mega-post.

Why? Because the cars they build are simply the epitome of hard core JDM wangan style. ...

Having visited Tokyo’s wangan on a few occasions I already know first hand the feeling of fear that seeing a modified 911 in my rear mirror brings. The air cooled engines are loud as hell when modified with straight through exhausts and these cars carry the nastiest widebody stance of any car out there. In a sense cars like these are the pioneers of the popular widebody style that we all love now.

Granted I am speaking in nostalgic terms whereas these cars I’m about to feature are modern built cars, with a late 80s/early 90s ultra aggressive wangan style. What you’re about to see is some of the most incredibly hardcore wheel fitments ever. Some of the most hardcore GT wings ever. And generally speaking, some of the most hardcore battle worn cars ever coming out of Japan. And yes…the base car itself is not JDM. Get over it, JDM tuning is a world wide movement and can apply to nearly any car. If you dont know, now you know…"

The full article is here ...

So to the other Porsche and euro car modifers on this forum, hold your heads high ... a modified Porsche or euro car can be just as JDM as any other car out there :)

I love RW P cars, there is more JDM DNA on it now than German.

They have a sweet Silvia too!
