Is the rear wing RUF also? Another unobtainable as I have only seen one. Love the red. My first ever red car picked up on Monday joining my 3TT.

NICE!! Great combo. The tail on my car is the factory Porsche unit. I had a chance to pick up the RUF spoiler but wasnít a big fan when I saw it in person. Itís noticeably smaller, Iím sure for better aero, but I like the look of the standard whale tail so I kept it.

Wow that's awesome!

Do you have any photos with the under tray removed? Would love to see how the turbos, manifold, exhaust, and catalytic look like!

Kevin -

Thanks for the memories of those meet-ups at Santana Row when our cars were new (to us). Still have the Speed Yellow Turbo, and like you, love it take it out and just feel the pull as the engine winds!
