Tuner Tuesday: 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Ruf BTR 3.4

Here’s the question of the day: do you need an original? Perhaps, if you have quite particular taste and your pockets are quite deep, yes is the only option for you. Perhaps you don’t feel like you could possibly turn up for a track event, coffee and cars, or club car show and explain to people that your pride and joy is a replica or car that was converted in the style of the originals. But to me, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and – as in this case – goes like a duck, perhaps it doesn’t matter that it didn’t leave the egg as a prized duckling. Ruf cars are some of the most highly sought tuner cars ever produced – and these days, a real-deal Ruf BTR will set you back a pretty penny; but then, so will a mint condition 930. 930s have recently undergone a serious spike in prices; perhaps recognition by the market that they’re a lot more car than a E30 M3 and probably should be priced below one. So what we have here is a great looking 930 that has been given a host of BTR upgrades by an authorized Ruf dealer. Is it worth the price of entry?

Certainly there’s a lot of value in the parts that have been added. Authentic Ruf parts seem to hold special value in the enthusiast community – it’s not unusual to see a mint set of those Speedline-made Ruf wheels top $6,000 on their own. The same could be said for those killer Recaro seats – they’ve developed a cult of their own. Mileage is certainly reasonable given the year, condition appears to be top, the modifications are the right ones, it’s got the motor to match the looks, it’s a classic color combination – what’s not to like? The price – just below $80,000 – is about halfway between a condition 2 and 3 1988 930 according to Hagerty. Now, obviously you’ve lost originality going with the upgrades, but to me what you have here is a very desirable car with some very desirable upgrades. I don’t think you need to make any excuses for this car; just enjoy a bargain version of one of the most popular tuner cars ever made!
