    Ruf Rt35

    Just noted that Ruf presented a new model, based on 991s with PDK but with a turbo engine (630hp, 835NM or torque). The best part is the rear - no turbo wing required, a very understated car SmileySmiley

     

    Did anybody drive it yet/has some more news about it?

    Re: Ruf Rt35

    Somehow, this new Rt35 is so reminiscent of the old BTR/CTR models from the 80s. Very understated and elegant looks and a lot of power Smiley

    I assume the Rt35 is RWD - i.e. the AWD turbo S might have a better traction at lower speeds. But above 100kph... You know what I mean Smiley This car should be quite quick Smiley

    It is RWD, so 0 to 100 kmh is not very relevant. I love this car! Gorgeous, quick, typical RUF! Great product! Not much info on their website, shame...

    This is a classic Ruf job, what he does best, I love it Smiley

     

    Just one thing still worries me, it's the pesky 9A1 turbo motor, I know its now been around for a couple of years and been tuned up to 650 or so hp but when I see the video showing the PDK changing up at no more than 6400rpm it makes me nervous for this engine.
     
    I know Porsche would say it changes up there because that is the shape of the power curve and torque falls off dramatically over 6500rpm (and I've seen the curves and this seems to be the case) but in 2012/13 a high end sports car engine which only revs to 6400rpm just seems a little fishy

    Exactly, they should put more infos there... I thought you might like this car. Could be a very nice daily driver. So understated and for sure very, very fun to drive :-)

    Of course, the engine and also the combination of PDK/engine might be less durable than one would hope Smiley

     Manual Gearbox should sort that out. The engine is so torquey anyway. I think my Turbo S is good for 620hp easy by boosting the pressure and the ECU but the problem is PDK, how much can it handle?Smiley


    Re: Ruf Rt35

    That thing in widebody + Mezger + manual, and that'll be my perfect daily Porsche. No need to wrap it up!


    Re: Ruf Rt35

    Markus, Alois can always try to build a car to specs. This won't be cheap but you get what you want. Just as a hint. 

    I was always dreaming of a 991 without a rear wing, the current GT2 engine with 630 hp and AWD. It would be perfect. 

    On the other hand, there are currently rumors that the 991 Turbo will get over 560 hp from the start, so maybe it is worth waiting for. Smiley The last hp figure rumor was in the 520 to 540 hp range.
