1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Mon Sep 08, 2014 7:10 pm    Post subject: 05 reg 993? don't mind if I do! Reply with quote

Spotted yesterday at Castle Hedingham.
An 05 reg 993? There had to be a story, and there was.
The guy who was showing the car was over from California, The way I understood it, it wasn't his car but belonged to a client.
The story: The client ordered the car from RUF, who the built the car from the ground up using ALL new parts including a brand new chassis purchased from Porsche. It was fitted with a twin turbo 500+ BHP engine and a custom (but very subtle) interior.
To qualify for the 05 plate the car had to meet all the regulations applicable to that year and had to be constructed from all new parts. If there was one single second hand part it would have to had been registered as a Q plate like a kit car. The guy showing it told us it was actually registered as a Ruf 993 and not a Porsche.
It was one of my favorite cars of the show, but there again, there were a lot of those! Grin

Maybe Jag's new low drag e-type and mkII give an idea of the sort of numbers - six figures, beginning with a 3!

It will have cost a lot! I would hazard a guess at £500k Surprised

I remember a long time ago a guy building a Sierra Cosworth from all new Ford parts including chassis in a similar way.

To get a new registration you can have one secondhand major component, such as engine or gearbox. But it has to have been reconditioned to as-new standard.

Fantastic topic Citori and thanks for posting ..
I've had a long term affair with all things RUF.
Amazing to see a '05 CTR2
I met Alois last year, he was charming to the last (the love affair stops just short of there!!)
It's my ultimate dream car .. You can keep your GT2!

It's my understanding that RUF are registered as a manufacturer and thus it's not uncommon (possibly usual) that their builds are registered as RUF, not Porsche.

It's a bit of a wonder they can register it a a RUF and not infringe on any trade marks... ie 'copying' the Porsche design.

Perhaps they pay Porsche some royalties..

Looks beautiful... the ultimate in scarcity must push the value of this through the roof.. glad to see he's driving it!!

Thanks for posting Citori

Seeing your picture reminded me, Matt LeBlanc was at Castle Hedingham on Sunday looking at this very car!

Talking to the guy he said it was made from parts Ruf had, apparently the original owner asked Ruf about air cooled cars not thinking they could do it and they said; 'you can have what you like'! So he said I'll have a 993 please!

The guy bought it over from California about 9 months ago, all he would say was he had some fun with the DVLA getting it registered! As Citori said we didn't broach the subject of price, it's got to be well into six figures.

Regarding copyright/infringement etc he made a comment to me about how RUF and the Porsche family use to be quite close so perhaps there was an agreement of sorts - be interesting to know whether since Porsche isn't now an independent company this would still stand.

He did make us laugh at the end saying he'd learnt something new about the car! (that the 05 plate made it look very unusual).

Certainly was a lovely car and the owner was very low key about, which was great to see.

And me...Smile Though they look so much better on a black car, particularly a turbo one. Mine were only intended to be temporary while the silvers were refurbed. But they appear to still be there...Smile

Mine aren't "Black" per se, but "Schwarz" (to match the car)

I am assuming yours are gloss black?
