The Traditions Of Art: Ian King’s Porsche 993 RWB


Winston Churchill once said: “Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.”  Ian King from Car Porn Racing in the Philippines eat, sleep and breathe this mantra and it’s no more apparent than in their flock of bagged RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF Porsche 911s. Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-004The importance of the tradition of the 911 legacy is something that Ian used to create a new work of art. Making sure his artwork had meaning to both himself and the casual observer is the main reason he chopped and bagged this classic 1994 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-002aRAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (RWB) is a Porsche tuner shop in Japan that has gained international notoriety by creating custom wide-body body kits for the 930, 964 and 993 body types. Their passion for combining Japanese and European tuning elements has grown to the point where seeing an RWB tuned Porsche is becoming as common a sight on city streets as it is on racing circuits.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-007Ian’s build progress can be seen as a two-part miniseries on YouTube (Part 1 & Part 2). This documentary breaks down the hours of work involved with grafting wide fenders and racing aesthetics to his Amaranth Violet 993.  Traditionally, RWB Porsches are known to sport Work wheels and this ride is sticking to tradition, but with a twist. Gold center powdercoated 18×11″ front and 18×13.5″ rear Work Meister S1 wheels wrapped in meaty 265/40/18 front and 335/30/18 rear Kuhmo tires keep her planted at all times.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-008StopTech provided maximum braking potential thanks to a big break kit while Rennline kinematic control arms, Tarett tie rods, H&R sway bars, Elephant mono balls and GT2 spindles give the suspension enough play to drop as low as possible.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-005bAn AirREX 12-way adjustable air strut setup took this RWB to show stopper status. AccuAir provided the management via a full E-Level and iLevel system mated to a single 5-gallon aluminum tank and dual ViAir 400c compressors.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-006If it is true that tradition created art and gave it context in time, then creating new traditions will only serve to expand our own understanding of what can be considered meaningful.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-003Big shout outs go to Victoria Court, AccuAir, AirREX, StopTech, Car Porn Racing, RWB, Varex Exhaust, and Mark Arcenal from Illest for their support on this project. Thanks also go out to Ian King, Kim Garcia, Fresh Produce, and Andrew Rodriguez for the photos.Porsche-911-993-964-bagged-airrex-accuair-car-porn-racing-airsociety-rwb-rauh-welt-begriff-001
