Ruf has always been known for high quality performance builds. This RCT EVO is no exception. The car started it's life as a factory Porsche Carrera 4. This Blueprinted Ruf started life as a 964 model, making it an even more desirable edition.
The Ruf technician was stationed at Weissach Performance in Vancouver BC for the entire build. Ruf built a fully fortified 3.6 turbo engine to RCT EVO specifications producing 425hp at a cost of nearly $50K (engine alone). The G/50 transmission is the perfect mate for the turbo thrust.
Suspension, brakes, and cooling have been fully upgraded to RCT EVO spec as well. This includes: Ruf Coilover Suspension, Bilsteins, sway bars, Ruf big brake kit (turbo brake upgrade), Oil Cooler upgrade, and a lowered euro spec ride height. The result of this work provides for a great handling sports car with a visceral driving experience. The RCT EVO is still so popular around the world that Ruf continues to build them today.
The guards red paint is in excellent condition as the gallery photos show. The car has Ruf wheels (F 8.5 X 18” / R 10 X 18”) with newer tires that were installed last year.
The black interior is all Ruf business and features the incredible Ruf sport seats, Ruf steering wheel w/ airbag, Ruf pedal bar/pedal set, and Ruf carpets and running boards. The radio has been upgraded to the Porsche Classic radio, providing the new owner with modern necessities such as GPS/ Sirius XM, etc. All electronics such as power roof, windows and mirrors, work as they should. The Air conditioning is cold and the heater works nicely.
This Ruf had a recent engine out reseal and new RS clutch installed by Turn3 in Canada. The car also had a recent leak down test and major service. Receipts and invoices can be viewed in the photo gallery.
Ruf: To paraphrase the well-known saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” the same applies to a popular concept: if it’s still popular, don’t stop making it. The RCT is still a popular and cherished RUF model, and therefore we are still building it. The charm of the air-cooled, single turbo flat-six that behaves in a similar way to a big displacement normally aspirated engine, continues to beguile Ruf enthusiasts the world over. It’s this traditional simplicity, as well as the summation of a host of small details that might normally be overlooked, that make the RCT such an attractive proposition to sports car buffs.
