The introduction of the Vossen Forged 3-piece Program is right at home on any widebody or fender-flared car, and at this point in aftermarket automotive history there’s no flares or widebody more noteworthy than that of RWB. Akira Nakai, the modest and insanely-hardworking craftsman behind each and every RWB Porsche in existence, ensures his quality by controlling nearly all the variables, all the way down to installation. Circling the globe several times a year, Nakai visits garages, homes and events installing his kit on any variety of 964 or 993 Porsche 911, but only now, due to Vossen’s introduction to the forged 3-piece wheel market, have we been able to take part in Nakai’s vision.
Our premier Pacific Northwest dealer, 503 Motoring (@503motoring), led by Tim Walbridge (@503tim), was first in line for a set of Vossen Forged 3-piece wheels, as he was anticipating Nakai’s visit to transform his Porsche 993 Targa. The wheel of choice for this Sazuka Grey creation? The Vossen Forged ERA-3, measuring 18×10.5 in the front and 18×13 in the rear. Wrapped in Nitto Tires (@nittotire), the wheels are manufactured in Vossen’s Miami-based forged wheel factory and finished in a Stealth Grey/Space Grey combo with chrome ARP hardware, and perfect match to the fresh Sazuka Grey paint on the 993.
