2013 Porsche Cayman CTR3 Clubsport by RUF

2013 Porsche Cayman CTR3 Clubsport by RUF

After being teased for quite some time, RUF’s new CTR3 Clubsport finally made its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Built as an evolution of the standard RUF CTR3, the new Clubsport version features some of the classic 1950s styling cues that were itching to get on a more modern interpretation.

The RUF CTR3 Clubsport has received a carbon fiber treatment on the fenders, door sills, rear deck lid, and the roof mounted air-duct to add a little flair to the already impeccable Cayman tuning package. A functional rigid rear spoiler also provides the car with more stability while driving at high speeds, which is a necessity in a vehicle such as this.

Powering the RUF CTR3 Clubsport is a twin turbocharged 3.8 liter flat six cylinder engine with an output of 750 HP at 7100 rpm and a peak torque of 708 lb-ft at 4000 rpm - that’s an increase of 50 HP over a standard RUF CTR3. The engine is mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox and can sprint the car up to an impressive top speed of 229 mph.

2011 RUF CTR 3

2011 RUF CTR 3

Porsche tuning firm extraordinaire, RUF, is one of the best in the business at what it does. So much so, that they produce some of the fastest and most powerful Porsche upgrades on the planet.

The latest model of their Cayman-based CTR 3 is a perfect example of that. Already boasting two previous models, the CTR 3 is the epitome of how a Porsche Cayman should be tuned up. On its own, the German sports car is already capable of producing an output of 265 horsepower, thanks to a 2.9-liter inline-six engine, but RUF have put their talents to good use to give the Cayman the proper juicing up. This was done by completely redesigning the car’s look and replacing the existing engine with a more powerful 3.8-liter flat-six cylinder engine with a staggering output of 750 horsepower.

Just in case your math is slow, that’s more than twice the ponies the standard Cayman has. Just goes to show how these guys are one of the best at what they do.
