13004615_5

The RUF BTR Cabriolet we featured back in December 2013 has come up for sale again, this time with a much higher price! The original auction, which did not sell, had an asking price of $199,500. The car then was relisted at $149,500 and still failed to sell. The current listing has it at $285,000, which is a lot. These are amazing machines with a fantastic pedigree and they have tended to do well on the market, a point which should continue to hold true in the future. But this is asking too much, especially given the previous auctions.

1986 Ruf BTR Cabriolet

A Ruf built 930 hardly needs much introduction on these pages. Ruf produced the BTR, a modified 911 based on the Porsche 930, as both a Coupe and a Cabriolet with each of those variants also coming along with the even more rare Slantnose option. The already potent turbocharged engine of the 930 was coaxed to deliver 374 hp to the rear wheels, making an already very quick and lively car into one of the best performing cars of its day. While the BTR is neither as well known nor as powerful as the famous CTR Yellowbird that was produced around the same time, it remains a highly sought after vehicle from one of the automotive-tuning world’s most respected brands. The car we see here is a 1986 Ruf BTR Cabriolet located in Colorado with just over 31,000 miles.
