1998 Porsche RUF Turbo R for sale at RM Sotheby’s

When Porsche’s 993-generation 911 arrived, RUF took the stock 408 bhp 993 Turbo and worked its magic, delivering a car with some 490 bhp. However, not all cars were built new in this way, with many 993 Turbos upgraded by RUF later in life. The stunning Turbo R offered here is one such example. It has been owned by the consignor since 2006, who was keen to add further performance and drivability. There was only one real option. His base 993 Turbo was sent to the RUF factory in Pfaffenhausen in 2012 for its Turbo R conversion. The upgrades over the stock 993 Turbo mean this car now delivers more than 500 bhp, as evidenced by the dyno readouts which accompany the car.

A C27 Spanish market car, the base 993 Turbo was specified in metallic black, with soft-look leather seats in front and rear. A huge amount was spent on its conversion, which totaled around €55,000. In addition to the engine upgrade, it was also partially stripped down and resprayed; the brakes, clutch, and suspension were upgraded, a new oil-cooler kit was fitted, and CTR2 front and rear bumpers were installed, plus a host of smaller component replacements. Since the conversion was completed in 2012, this Turbo R has travelled just under 10,000 km with all maintenance completed at a Porsche dealer in Barcelona. Stored at the RUF factory since October 2017, this stunning Turbo R is ready to embarrass any number of more recent supercars with its otherworldly traction and incredible power delivery.
