There’s plenty to love about the RUF’s special program for the all-new Porsche 911. Not only does it commemorate the German tuner’s 35th anniversary, but it’s also actually the very first turbocharged 2012 Porsche 911 in the world. A fact that’s made even more impressive considering that Porsche themselves haven’t released a turbocharged 911.
The showroom model of the RUF RT 35th Anniversary has been dressed in a fancy military green paint finish, which pulls out a ’wow’ reaction among all those that see the car up close. But for all of the likeability of the car’s exterior finish, the RUF RT 35th Anniversary distinguishes itself because of what RUF put under its hood. With a 3.8-liter flat-six engine in tow, RUF added turbochargers to the overall mechanical configuration, thus spiking the sports car’s output from the standard 400-horsepower output all the way up to an insane 630 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 608 lb/ft of torque at 3,000 rpm. The whole set-up is also available with a PDK double-clutch transmission, ensuring superior performance and driver comfort, and allowing the car to hit a top speed of 205 mph.
Consider this special anniversary model a prime example of what a tuned up 2012 Porsche 911 is expected to be, proving that RUF is considered one of the best Porsche tuners in the world.
