Beschreibung

This very special Porsche is a 1993 Ruf 964 RCT (Ruf Carrera Turbo) and was originally supplied by Porsche Stuttgart, country code C00 for Germany, as a wide-body 911 Carrera 4 Anniversary model known as the ‘30 Jahre 911'. Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show to celebrate 30 years of the 911, this limited edition 964 featured Turbo-body styling, chassis, brakes suspension and a 3.6 litre engine, as per the racing 964 RSRs.

This particular car was spotted by none other than Alois Ruf Jr, the boss of Ruf, and became his personal car in 1997. It was used as the basis for a revolutionary conversion he had in mind that would combine a Turbocharged 964 3.6 engine with four-wheel drive. Something that Porsche themselves would later employ in the 993 Turbo. The Ruf factory quickly set about stripping the car and rebuilding it with some mouth-watering components.

The 964 engine was created in-house with twin-plug ignition, Motronic engine management and naturally a KKK K26 Turbo that took the original output from 300bhp to 385bhp. The gearbox was rebuilt by Ruf and a limited slip differential fitted. Also fitted were uprated Ruf brakes, Ruf suspension, Ruf sports exhaust, Ruf 5-spoke 18" Speedline Wheels, Ruf electronic controlled 4-wheel drive transaxle, and numerous aesthetic upgrades such as steering wheel, gauges and pedals.

Inevitably, the results were so impressive that the car remained in Alois Ruf's collection until 2007, when it was sold to a UK collector and enthusiast. As one would expect, the car has attracted the interest of Porsche journalists and enthusiasts. In February 2011 it was featured in ‘911 & Porsche World' and favorably compared to it Porsche cousin, the 3.6 964 Turbo.

Finished in Schwartz Metallic, the paintwork today looks stunning and the panel fit is excellent. The grey full leather interior features electric comfort seats with driver lumber support and is presented in superb condition.

One of the most impressive aspects of this vehicle is its service history. There are stamps in the service book from 1993-1997 by Porsche main agents in Germany. From 1997-2008 it is all Ruf factory stamps and from 2008 onwards it has been maintained by Porsche West London, Jaz and then back to Ruf again in 2011 for a suspension overhaul and service.

Supplied with its original German paperwork and registration document, numerous bills and receipts for works carried out, original stamped service book and wallet, tools, correspondence, magazine features and current MoT certificate, this unique car has both performance and provenance that will appeal to any Porsche collector. This important example offers genuine value when compared to the 964 3.6 Turbo.
