are there any RUF-VIN GT2?

the modification add some value, i agree maybe not enough to bump it from 75K -to- 130k

It's called the "Sloan Effect". You know, price cars in the stratosphere and see if any sucker will bite.

i am not sure even a RUF vin'd car should necessarily cost more than oem porsche.

from the seat of the subject car. it's pretty USED up.

Default It does but depends

To many factors to consider... if one has a 996 Turtbo and sends to RUF for lots of RUF partts and the R Turbo treatment you can be sure you would see more then a stock 996TT. This would not create a RUF VIN car but would still be a RUF Modified car.

I have a 993 TT RUF Turbo R, (35k on car 20K since RUF Conversion) this is NOT a RUF Vin car but a car that was done By RUF etc...and for example I think an equal car to mine in a 993TT would run less to the right buyer that wants a RUF car....

For someone who wants a stock purist like vehicle I agree NO mods is the best way to be....

In this GT2 at quick glance thought RUF did engine work, ECU work, other parts etc to it to make it some sort of RUF GT2 etc.... seeing the notes, comments and paperwork closer I am not sure I see that.... For example my RUF reciepts talk about an engine swap and a "RUF Turbo R conversion" treatment done to the car etc...

Great cars you all have here, do love the 996 gt2 and gt3 cars and the Turbos...

Thanks

Usually when RUF does a "full conversion" they also rebadge the car in addition to door sills, steering wheel, mirrors, shifter, brakes, suspension, etc. When my car was done they did everything that was in the RUF catalogue minus the integrated roll cage which was 20K Euros. The total conversion was right at $70K. It looks like this car was balled up early in it's life and then was sent to RUF for the accident rebuild. Funny Sloan tries to sell this car for $135K and they cant even clean out the filthy BMG filter or vacuum the carpets.

Similar build to my car except mine has more RUF components... Mine is considered an 'R-GT2 from RUF auto center

Anyway, crazy to see that full reprint and accident repair, I never ever noticed that, insane!!! Especially at that price now. Been for sale forever
