RUF is a bespoke manufacturer of high performance German automobiles. Started in 1974 by Alois Ruf Jr., they have focused entirely on re-engineering the Porsche sports cars, primarily the 911. They offer complete RUF vehicles as well as extensive modifications for Porsche vehicles. A RUF technically is not a Porsche, although the starting point for most of their vehicles is a “body-in-white” purchased from Porsche, the result is a creation of RUF themselves and is therefore granted a RUF VIN. The basic Porsche DNA is still there, deep inside, but improved upon in almost every way by the craftsman at RUF. A RUF Porsche carries the parts developed in RUF’s quest for performance and drivability. Nothing is lost on a RUF car, you get immense power and performance, while maintaining a car that is as comfortable to drive on the street as it is capable on the track.
