Ever Wanted a Turbo Targa?

The Turbo Targa is back! Check out RUF's cool new edition called Turbo Florio.

This isn't a Turbo Targa. Still a narrow body.

645 hp, rwd or awd, manual or PDK. It's the Turbo Targa that Porsche never produced. RUF Turbo Florio

I hate to go out of, "Porsche Alignment," but I like it.

I would LOVE a Turbo Targa!
Porsche should have offered them since the 997's.

All of the factory 991.2 targas are already turbo charged
They can be ordered with PDK or Manual
They can also be ordered rear wheel drive only if you like
So, Targa Turbos for purists are already available, factory.

So, you say you want a "real" turbo with 600hp? Just give it a simple tune and you got it.
Go nuts and change turbos, intercoolers, downpipes, headers, etc. and you can exceed 700 WHP

And you can do all of this without destroying a car with an aftermarket Targa top and for a lot less money.
Oh, its also reversible on a real Targa and not on this RUF

It's not an aftermarket Targa top at all.

You sure about that? Mind creating one using the configurator and posting a link? A good friend of mine wanted to order a RWD 991.2 Targa and Porsche told him it wasn't available. So apparently you know something RUF and I don't and would love to make my buddies day.

And RUF started with a factory Targa -- so no aftermarket top on that car.

Agreed.

This is what happened during testing when they tried to make a RWD version..... ;-)

They can't be ordered w/ RWD and Targa Turbos for purists aren't already available, factory. A "real" turbo doesn't need 600hp.
