May 2014: For sale by Specialist Cars of Malton with the following description:

In stock now is this gorgeous Porsche 993 Turbo. First registered in on 1st August 1995 (new registration day) by Merlin Porsche Nottingham the car is finished in Arena Red, which was the launch colour for the 993 Turbo, with black leather. Having had just three owners from new the car has covered a low 67,577 miles from new, the equivalent of a mere three and a half thousand miles a year.

The car was equipped with the following options from the factory:

373 – Sport seat left with electric height adjustment
374 – Sport seat right with electric height adjustment
567 – Windscreen with green sunshield
650 – Electric sunroof

In addition in to the standard spec the car went to Ruf in Germany in 2007 for a programme of tasteful upgrades including:

Ruf TurboR conversion including additional oilcooler, engine rebuilt
Install Ruf instruments
Install Ruf strut brace
Install Ruf stabiliser kit rear axle
Install stuff bearing rear axle subframe, replace front and rear dampers, wheel alignment

This work came to a rather pricey €49,264.79 Euros but gives an output close to 500 BHP, a substantial increase from the stock car’s 408 BHP. 0-60 time drops to 3.6 seconds, a top speed approaching 200 mph and a monstrous 0-124 mph time of a mere 11.8 seconds. Ruf is among the very best respected Porsche tuning houses, to the point they are now acknowledged by the German government as a car manufacturer, able to issue their own VIN numbers.

A lovely service history is present, comprising the official Porsche centres for the first 6 years, then our friends at Strasse in Leeds:
