    The way that guy was driving the yellowbird around the Nurburgring was awe inspiring. Especially when you've heard all the stories of how hard the original 930 turbos were to drive on the limit, and that was in standard form. So that's one sorted 911piloted by one seriously talented driver. Also, for someone like Porsche to send out blank chassis to allow another company to build their own versions of the legendary 911 from scratch goes to show just how good RUF is. Much respect. 911s kick ass! A little pricey though.

    but RUF has nothing to do with Porsches as a company, they do use chassis of Porsche but with no marks on it , and they use Ruf made parts only , that's why RUF do not have the usual trademark of a Porsche

    So many things wrong here... Ruf didn’t “add” dry sump cooling to any 911. The NACA ducts were completely ineffective, thus eliminated from the production CTR’s. Many other errors, but your video is still entertaining.
