Thnaks for the info, guys, and please keep it coming. I think I'm trying to specifically find the Ruf Rennlisters, but all the Ruf data is interesting. Are all CTRs RUF Vin? Or were there some conversions?

Leon... does your turbo R have a Ruf Vin? I'd like to add that data as well, if you don't mind. Hot damn, the decsription of your car is awesome. How much does it weigh?

Thnaks, and lets keep the data coming. We'll have two newcomers to report soon also... one is on the road as I type... picking up his new turbo R. This should be fun.
it was converted in 1998 to the '490'spec and again in 2004 to '558' with revised exhaust, turbos, fuel pressure and cams, weight at 1313kgs

Tetzflah,

I am 99% sure that the black car you speak of (SB's) old black car floating around the
wholesale world started out as a 89 Carrera 4. They had 2 black and 2 white and possibly
all have been converted in Pfaffenhuasen. I have pictures of my wife riding in that car.
At one time it said "The Ultimate" on the back spoiler of it. The CTR2 Sports I speak of
are of course different cars.

Yes Tetzflah you are right, he is an old roomate of mine who I just saw last week.
No one knows more about RUF cars than he does, period!
