Description

French title
Châssis WPOZZZ93ZKSOOO518

- Ruf preparation
- Only 118 000 km
- Very rare model

The Porsche 911 Turbo or '930' remains the most powerful 911, and the more civilised evolution of the 3L cars from the 1970s which ran in the Le Mans 24 Hour race.
The example on offer was delivered new to its first owner by Porsche Germany on 17 April 1989. In 1995 the owner sent it to the renowned preparer Ruf to be given the mechanical and cosmetic makeover they specialise in. All BTR modifications were fitted. The 3299cc flat-six, 300bhp turbo injection engine was increased to 3366cc and 374bhp, and fitted with a special heat exchanger. The car has a G50 5-speed gearbox. It was also equipped with a specific double rear spoiler, integrated into the engine lid, a front spoiler and a 3-spoke steering wheel. The windscreen has the optional graded green tint and there is a sliding metal sunroof. In 1999, at 82,000 kms, this Porsche was sold to its second owner in the South of France, who only used the car sporadically. It then passed to the current owner, a Porsche enthusiast. He had a comprehensive service carried out in October 2016 for the cost of 8000€, which included re-sealing the engine. The car will be delivered with its books, manuals and original invoices, spare set of keys and new delivery note. This superb Ruf, with 118 000 km from new, has just been inspected by Alain Orthion, the Porsche specialist in the South of France. It is a rare model that has been through the hands of one of the masters in historic preparation for the marque. This example is presented in prime condition and drives extremely well on the road.
