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.

I think some of its parts are unnecessary additions.

This is one car with hybrid qualities resulting from RUF’s tuning.

The unmodified version was better. RUF’s tuning wasn’t effective.

RUF must do it magically. The Green military color of this Porscdhe 911 is very masculine and men would like this though the price is much higher.

Thanks to RUF, it looks tamed and less intimidating now. It just doesn’t fit to sport that look.

It doesn’t seem like RUF has done anything to it, honestly.

I don’t know what RUF’s vision is, but I think this edition is not really effective. I find its modified appearance unattractive, so to me, it is a flop. It’s only fortunate that it is known to be dynamic.

It really looks like the old porsche 911 but having turbochargers added to it makes it more cooler. I love its military green color.

This car owned the other competitors at the last Geneva Motor Show for having the fastest record. I don’t like the color they used on this one.

Whoa, this is one of the most powerful cars I’ve ever known. Its shiny exterior is very striking too, no wonder it is popular.

It’s classy and flashy! Although Porsche 911 has never been one of my favorites, I think RUF’s modification made it look a bit better.

I think RUF only changed the color of its whole body and the rims, nothing else.

I love its glossy olive-green paint job; in my own opinion, I think it sports dark shades of colors the best.

I’m loving the glossy olive green paint job! In addition to that, the engine performance is shockingly high!

It looks like an ordinary Porsche 911 model, did RUF really add something unique to it?
