Showing respect, Rough World Style
As a an avid follower of Akira Nakai’s craft, I make it sure to visit RWB Manila‘s turf known as Car Porn Racing whenever he is in town to watch him work on his latest creations. Last week, Nakai-San worked on ‘Nene‘ and ‘Balbonic‘. But what is it behind those names? Enjoy the photos.
Rauh Welt in the Philippines started mid 2013; now Nakai-San logged more than 6 trips to our country.
It has been a regular site for Porsche enthusiasts to gather whenever he is in town.

‘Nene’ was the first in our country to sport a ‘Touring’ bumper from the Chiba-based shop.
Wheel choice are the trademark Work Meister S1’s 18×11 up front and 18×13.5 on the rear.
Those fender flaps has an added cost but it add’s aggression to the car. Was literally staring at this angle all day!
So why ‘Nene’? The owner wanted to pay tribute to a significant person in his life, as he promised ‘her’ a Porsche. Naming it by her mother’s first name.
‘Balbonic’ was built at the same time with ‘Nene’. The two owners have been close friends for quite some time now.
RWB Manila #8 is named after a prized racing horse who passed away. The horse was a champion and now reincarnates through ‘Balbonic’.
We appreciate things after knowing its significance in each of our lives.
There goes a story of two friends who pay respect, Rough World style.
Special thanks to Ian, Kim, PV, Miles and Chepe of Car Porn Racing for having me around.
