If you check all the lists of people’s favorite cars who attended SEMA 2015, 9 times out of 10 this classic yellow RWB Porsche Long-Hood will be on their list.

RWB (and Japanese widebody kits in general) have been making a strong showing in all the car shows lately and you can tell because everyone from car bloggers to part-time car enthusiasts love them.

But if we were going to spend our hard-earned money on one car, there would be no question – we wouldn’t be going with the newer bodied RWB’s.

We’d rock out with a classic RWB PORSCHE 911/930 backdate long-hood style wide body just like this one.

If you check out RWB LA’s official site, you can get the details on the body kit – it starts at $22,000 and it includes a front bumper, a rear bumper, front super wide fenders, rear super wide fenders and a ducktail.

Unfortunately, to make it look exactly like the car at SEMA 2015, you will need to pony up an additional $1,000 for the long hood (because the original car didn’t have it).

And of course, you will need to get either Work rims for $5,500 or RWB Los Angeles 3-pieces full custom forged wheels for $4,500 (and you still will need to get tires and have them mounted and balanced).

For suspension, we would probably do Accuair or AirRex (about $8,000) so we can go up and down driveways no problem.

So what is the total going to be for all this old-school goodness? 

First off, you’re still going to need a late 70’s 911 (a good one will probably cost around $60k) and then add on the body kit (about $23k before taxes) and then get rims (let’s do Work for $5,500 plus $1,200 for tires) and then an air suspension (for about $8k).

Grand total – $97,700 before labor and taxes.  Let’s just round it up to about $120k just to be safe.

But the good news is you’re going to have one of the baddest RWB Porsches on the block which can be the next superstar at SEMA.
