So… if I am the kind of guy that has a Ruf car in his/her garage I am going to know exactly what I have.Â Here we have a Ruf tuned 1980 Porsche 930.
What level of tune, I have no idea.Â CTR?Â BTR?Â Not sure, but it has 475 horsepower whatever it is.
From the seller –
“ruf 1985 930 911 turbo 475 din .hp power very fast car one of the fastest cars of the 80 top speed 200 Q mile low 12 mint condtion have owned fore 17 year very rare car call bill 774=249596. TH CAR IS A 1985 GERMAN CAR IS A RUF HAS MA TITLE SO SAME CAR GO THROUGH BARRET JAKSON FOR 129000.”
What?Â I am not even sure what this means.Â My guess it the seller bought a 1980 Porsche 930 and had some Ruf updates installed.Â This is not to be confused with a factory built CTR or BTR.Â Those cars can cost anywhere from $60-130k.Â This is a very nice car and very very fast.Â Probably a $50k car all day long.
You know what would be nice, some more detail.Â I hate having to guess at what we are looking at.Â But other than some cryptic pictures we don’t have much to go on.Â The exhaust and wheels are Ruf spec but without a motor shot there is no way of knowing what level of tune we are looking at.
Potential buyers, it’s time to start asking questions.Â The ambiguity of the ad might make for a good buying opportunity for the right person.
Be careful out there!
