18k-Mile 1996 Porsche 993 RUF Turbo R

Now available for auction is this 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo finished in Grand Prix White over a Marble Grey and Black leather interior.  This 993 was first sold in the state of Washington before moving to Texas in 2003 and eventually being acquired by the current owner in Oklahoma within the last year. In 2003 at 2,300 miles, a RUF senior technician was flown in from Germany to install a genuine RUF TurboR package which is verified by a certificate of authenticity.  Accompanied by service records dating back to the late 1990s including some considerable items carried out within the last few years, this RUF-upgraded 993 Turbo is now being offered for auction while showing just over 18k miles on the odometer.

This Turbo is finished in Grand Prix White and is characterized by wide fenders and a body-colored rear spoiler. The seller reports a few minor road-going chips on the front end commensurate with the car’s mileage, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. “Big Red” Brembo brake calipers are tucked behind the 18” Turbo hollow-spoke wheels which feature colored Porsche crests and new Continental tires.

Inside, you will find two-tone Marble Grey and Black leather interior with optional supple leather upholstery on the front and rear seats.  Other factory options include heated front seats with lumbar support, a remote 6-disc CD changer, and the Digital Sound Package. The cabin stays true to its original appearance with the factory CR-210 radio remaining in place.  Some signs of wear are noted on the shift knob and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.

This 993 is equipped with an air-cooled 3.6L twin-turbocharged flat-six engine featuring a RUF TurboR package. First introduced in 1998, this package was specially developed by the engineers at RUF to minimize turbo lag while producing an output of up to 490 HP.  All four wheels are driven by way of a 6-speed manual transmission.  This 993 is also said to have been upgraded with a RUF suspension system.  The TurboR package was installed at 2,300 miles by Mr. Josef Huber, a RUF senior technician, and a receipt for the work carried out is included in the photo gallery along with the rest of the official RUF documentation.

Records are said to be included dating back to the late 1990s, and the seller notes that maintenance was carried out by RAC Performance of Texas in 2017-2018.  More recently, service was completed by Boardwalk Ferrari along with a rebuild of a turbocharger earlier this year.  There are no outstanding maintenance items reported at this time.

This sale will include official RUF documentation, the original window sticker, and a clean title. One of the more desirable air-cooled cars of all time upgraded by the most reputable Porsche tuner in the world, this low-mileage 993 Turbo is a perfect fit for any world-class car collection.

    @JMS935 "total-stunner" One word now lol

  • oufan2929 (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Abartman2 I welcome anyone to come see it. It’s a rare instance where I really think as good as the pictures are, pics don’t do it justice.

  • Abartman2 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @oufan2929 thanks so much . Beautiful car ?

  • oufan2929 (seller) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    @Jaan yes! Thank you for asking. I've added a picture of the owners manual jacket and everything in it.

    I've also added a couple of pictures showing the 86 pages of records kept since basically new. The earliest record I found was dated in 1997 and I pointed that out with it's own picture!

    @Porsche993TT it really is such a stunner! Thanks for the feedback!

  • JMS935 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    That’s actually two words, but I agree with you.

  • Porsche993TT 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Saw this car at RAC Performance back in 2017 only one word; total stunner!!!

  • Jaan 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Is the original leather wallet pack and service book with the car ?

  • CharlestonFrech (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    Has to be a $300k car based on the one that sold today on that other site! Beautiful TT, GLWS!

  • MadeInStuttgart 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    I know the owner well… someone I wouldn’t hesitate buying from. This car is everything and more - photos don’t do it justice. Good luck everyone!

  • Spicy-Y (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 2 daysago

    This is beautiful. Well over the 175k mark I suspect!

  • JAB12 (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @oufan2929 this example is simply STUNNING..!!! The winner of this one will not be disappointed. For those interested, one of my former 9934Ss was regularly serviced by RAC Performance and they also performed the work that the pre purchase inspection showed as needs before I bought that car. Their attention to detail is second to none. Someone is going to get a fine example with that rare RUF touch. GLWA!!

  • oufan2929 (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    ***Miles that is. 18,741.

  • oufan2929 (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Please note, as of today, there is 18,741. That may climb ever so slightly. May take a few more light evening cruises.
