Fast and furious: ’90 RUF Porsche Turbo BTR Slant-nose
RUF had been modifying and upgrading Porsche 911’s since the 1970’s; first with a ‘RS’ Style 215 hp normally aspirated 911, and then a 3.3L version of the 911 Turbo, before Porsche built it. The first RUF car, made after RUF gained German manufacturer status, was the BTR, which was put in limited production in 1983, and continued into the mid 90’s. The letters ‘BTR’ come from ‘Group B’, ‘Turbo’, and ‘Ruf’. In the mid-1980’s Ruf Porsches were the fastest cars that money could buy. In the Road and Track “Top Speed Tests” the Ruf Porsches not only had the highest top speed, but also a perfect reliability record. Today’s BTR cost a cool quarter of a million bucks new in 1990. It has since covered 1400 miles as it was mainly a part of a collection and not a street car. Too bad because it is one hot Cabriolet! Its most distinctive exterior feature is the factory slant-nose. That was a hugely expensive option if performed at the factory (some were aftermarket). We don’t know too much more about the car other than it is virtually new and significant and from one of Porsche’s top tuners. Contact the seller by clicking here.
