This is one of the most well known Porsche turbo builds on the internet. Known everywhere as the RUF RSR, this vehicle has a fantastic story behind it.

Originally ordered as a factory turbo look vehicle, this M491 Carrera went from being a 3.2 to becoming a RUF converted BTR 3.4 by Tore Johnson; Premier RUF importer and builder of the day.

At the time of its first inception, this car became known as the RUF RSR wearing a full steel 935 body conversion rolling for 2000 miles and being published in the 1989 book “The World’s Fastest Cars”. Shortly after, the car was built into a 3.5 5 speed version that suffered an engine failure until its rebirth in 2015.
