RUF GT Is A Pumped Up, 515 HP Version Of The Porsche 911 GTS

The RUF GT has just premiered at the Geneva Motor Show as a spruced-up version of the 991.2-generation Porsche 911 GTS.

Power for the RUF GT comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six pumping out 515 hp and 476 lb-ft (645 Nm), giving the car 911 GT3 levels of grunt. By comparison, a road-going 911 GT3 delivers 493 hp and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm).

In a straight-line, the RUF GT can reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in a brisk 3.4 seconds compared to the 3.5 seconds required by a GTS. The tuned car’s 199 mph (320 km/h) top speed also edges out the stock GTS’ 192 mph (308 km/h).

RUF has kept the styling alterations made to the sports car at a minimum. At the front, for example, changes are limited to a new bumper with circular air intakes. There’s also a distinctive rear bumper, carbon fiber rear diffuser, and a twin tailpipe design. Customers can also choose between a ducktail spoiler and a fixed wing, and a set of five-spoke wheels complete the modifications.

The GT isn’t the only car the German tuner has brought to Geneva. Also sitting at the company’s stand is the production version of the GTR Anniversary, a homage to the iconic Yellowbird. That particular model uses a bespoke carbon fiber chassis and pumps out 710 hp.

“These two cars represent years of development, thousands of man-hours and a lifetime of passion and enthusiasm,” marketing director Estonia Ruf said in a recent statement. “As we continue celebrating our 80th anniversary in 2019 these cars will be the centerpiece, each one embodying what makes a Ruf so special.”

    Always was a big fan of Ruf, one of the best tuners in the game, with products that have no fluff, just raw speed and track performance.

  • I love it, Ruf seems to be back on basic stuff.. just wondering how much it would cost.
