    Here are some new pictures I took today. The quality isn't that great, weather was pretty bad, car was dirty AND I took these with my brand new camera (Sony @350 DSLR). It's my first DSLR so the pictures might be a little bit off in the beginning. My apologies for that.

    Anyway, here they are:

    Clutch feels good Alex. I think the 997 GT3 and GT2 clutch are harder to handle.
    This one feels kinda stock really. Perhaps a notch harder.

    I don't know what has been cahnged exactly tho



    Oh well, I notice in your spec's you have a dual mass flywheel, so perhaps that is stock and they upgraded the pressure plate and friction plates

    Hey, doing a round Europe trip with the Porsche Club GB 997 guys in August - fancy meeting up to compare against my RS-Tuning 'puny' 800Nm Turbo?

    (there will be a GT2 with us too)



    Would be nice to meet somewhere Alex
    Puny 800NM ... ROFL! I bet you kill nearly everything out there! How many HP do you have?

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Looking really good, Rami! I forgot to ask you whether you'd noticed any issues with scraping the front end with the new GT2 bumper especially when compared to the stock 997TT bumper?

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Looking good, Rami!

    That Ruf tail just works .

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    No scraping so far Jason. But the car isn't lowered yet!
    I don't think it's that much of a difference with the turbo bumper tho.

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Puny 800Nm and a piddly 544bhp

    Hey, hope you don't get much fog where you are as you don't have the lights for it anymore

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Foglights are gone indeed ... just like on the orignal GT2.
    To be honest ... I use front foglights approx once a year here.

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Really really beautiful!
    Best modified turbo so far!

    What did you do with the original front?
    Would it fit on a regular S like mine?

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    The original front is still mine but I plan to sell it to my dealer. If you like I can ask if it's an easy fit for a 997S?

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    A friend of mine has done a retrofit of a 997turbo front and back on his 997s.. so it's possible allright!

    Rami, that turbo looks MEAN, still think those rims are looking good, but the OZ's will make the picture perfect!
    Have fun today with some good weather, finally!!

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    So yesterday I went out to practise a bit with my new camera. Model of the day was the Porsche

    This is the result ... info/tips/advice is always welcome from the photographers:

    Rami,RESPEKT bro

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Right back at ya Hugo

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Hi Rami,

    Congrats! Didn't know you had a Turbo Cab on the way and you still have your Murcie roadster coming. You're doing great for yourself, that is awesome!

    I'm confused though, which car are you modifying the Coupe or the Cab?

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Rami sold the 997TT coupe and currently drives the cabrio.

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Rami,
    Is that type of front license plate legal in belgium?
    btw, the only tip I could give you in the photography department: Try making pictures in the netherlands!
    -Joost-

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    I've never been to the Netherlands but if Joost thinks that'd be a good idea then it might be worth a try. How far is it from Belgium to the Netherlands?

    Here's a picture that I tweaked for Rami.

    Before


    After

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    LOL, Jason, it is not that I think it will result in better pictures, but at least I will be able to see the beast!
    There are some nice sceneries though to function as background in NL.

    That front plate looks designed to mislead speed cameras (nice I = 1 trick)...

    That's actually funny, because when I drove to Brussels in January, I had rain from Köln to Aachen, but as soon as I crossed the Dutch border, everything was dry and sunny . Even funnier, after crossing through the Netherlands, reaching the Belgian border, it started raining again .

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Front plate reads "RAMI 01".
    Rear plate reads "RAM 101".

    Speed cameras take a picture of the front of the car. Who is getting Rami's next ticket?

    If they are bull-headed, they will just reference the plate against the database. I much prefer a good detector and laser jammer, along with a GPS database of stationary speed traps.

    However, good eye on the plate. I knew that his last car had a somewhat different plate, but didn't think much of it.

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Hey Mike,

    I'm a sucker to that 'open-air feeling' man ... that's why I eventually chose for the LP640 Roadster in stead of the coupé. I have that much more fun when I can drive open air.
    Problem is that with the current (idiotic) soft top for the Murci you need to be VERY sure that the weather isn't going to turn when you drive out.
    In the end that was the reason why I sold the 997 turbo coupé ... that way when the weather is good (decent) I can still drive open air in the Porsche ... and when it's REALLY good the Murci will come out to play

    In winter time the Murci won't come out much (the Porsche has a hard top) BUT I'm the first on the list for that new Genaddi carbon fibre hardtop for the Murci. If that works out fine I will drive the car more frequently of course.

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    The license plate isn't to mislead speed camera's. In Belgium they mainly take shots from your rear plate.
    It's just for the fun ... for as long as it lasts that is

    Re: Rami's Porsche 997 turbo "R" cab by RUF

    Nice collection there. Like the choice in wheels.
