Weekly Roundup 08/16/15 – a Porsche 996 RUF RTurbo conversion, a Porsche 930 Slantnose RUF BTR conversion and a RUF RCT EVO

Added a more eclectic mix of cars this past week. Old and new represented, RUF VIN and conversion cars, and Tiptronic and manual gearboxes as well.

2002 Porsche RTurbo 550 Conversion: I don’t know how many tiptronic RTurbos there are out there, but I would imagine it probably makes a great city car and probably launches pretty hard with the automatic transmission giving you the ability to build turbo boost from a dead stop by power braking and then let the breaks go with the power ready to come in. This car doesn’t seem to have any other modifications done to it besides the engine work, definitely makes for a good sleeper.

Porsche 930 Turbo Slantnose RUF BTR III Conversion: I’ve been looking for more details on this since I first came across it on a Japanese car blog. It looks to be a very late Porsche 930 Turbo with a BTR III conversion. It seems to be a very well-kept car with some exclusive options on the interior, the car might even be a 930S. If anyone has further info and photos on this vehicle, please get in touch with me.

1992 RUF RCT EVO: This car is/was owned by Pingo on Rennlist. I’m not entirely sure if he still has the car, but when I posted it on our RUF Registry Facebook Fan Page, longtime RUF owner and RUF Registry fan Egil Koch who owns a black Porsche 996 RUF RKompressor Conversion mentioned that he owned the car previously and added VIN info to help complete the car’s registry profile. I don’t know the current whereabouts of the car or if Pingo still owns it, reach out to me if you have more info.

That’s it for this week, if you come across some cool RUFs or own one, please reach out! info@rufregistry.com or on facebook at RUF Registry Facebook Fan Page
