Lot #436 - Anyone who knows Porsche is probably aware that RUF in Germany is one of the preeminent tuners of the marque, and has been for decades. This expertise has lead to some of the most extreme 911's on the planet including the iconic Yellow Bird. Well, now you can own a unique slice of the RUF legacy with this RUF 993 Targa Turbo. Over $45,000 was spent upgrading it into a Turbo-charged 420hp/435lb/ft supercar that stands apart from the crowd, especially since it is based on the rare 993 Targa body style and a 1998 model from the final year of air cooled Porsche production. Along with the engine updates, RUF required a full RUF upgraded suspension, upgraded oil coolers, race quality RUF wheels and ultra high performance tires. In addition, this car further had the optional big brake upgrade, leather RUF steering wheel and RUF gauges added. The focused nature, single Turbo and RWD drivetrain give a completely different, more visceral character than a factory Turbo, and the ride is flat out exhilarating. 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, 12.2 in the quarter mile, reduced understeer and better on-limit feel from the front end. It is a very complete package.
