There isn’t an automobile on the road that is more iconic than the Porsche 911. The 911 has seen plenty of variations through the years. It is one car that has withstood the test of time quite well. The good folks over at RUF are known for taking Porsche 911 bodies and turning them into some of the most incredible sports cars you can buy. Today we get a look at one such ride, a 1998 RUF CTR2 Sport Coupe.
This stunning machine is an evolution of the air-cooled Porsche 911, commissioned by Frank Beddor. RUF first gained fam when the CTR “Yellowbird” propelled itself to 213 MPH in a Road & Track test. This particular model was designed for running at the Pikes Peak hill climb. Powered by a twin-turbo flat-six, this stunning machine boasts 580 horsepower and drives all four wheels.
There is a knob on the center console that allows the driver to change power and torque bias. The car is one of just four CTR’s equipped with the system. The vehicle arrives in black while RUF’s signature green interior provides a dose of color and nice contrast. The car is probably the best example of what the last air-cooled 911 was capable of.
