The Full History Of Ruf

The guys at Donut Media are nothing if not excited. A car doesn’t make anything so pedestrian as horsepower, they make HRSPRS. If those HRSPRS are especially stacked(preferably due to a steady diet of love and oats), they become #BUFFHORSES. 1987 isn’t just a year, it’s 8 years BPM (Before Post Malone). Anything worth saying is worth yelling. Creepy animations are always invited, and product placement is as likely to appear on the host’s body as on film. These are some truly enthusiastic enthusiasts, and this is what they think of Ruf.

Ruf has existed in one form or another since the 1950s, but emerged in the form we know today in the late 1970s and early 1980s with the SCR, BTR, and CTR. Between crushing supercar royalty in a 1987 Road & Track top speed test and creating the first great video of a street car on the ‘Ring, Ruf has been cemented in the popular consciousness for more than three decades.

Over the last two years the brand has taken their manufacturer designation to new heights, creating their first all in-house cars in the marque’s history. These re-imagined takes on the CTR and SCR may look like 911s, but are virtually all-original creations.

Though the video does have some minor errors (and we do mean minor, like asserting that Ruf added dry-sump oiling to a 911 when creating the SCR), it’s still an enjoyable watch laden with off-kilter humor and commendable enthusiasm.

This New RUF SCR is 510 Horsepower of Naturally Aspirated Goodnes, But It’s Not-a-911

One look at the RUF SCR’s underlying structure will tell you that it is not a 911. This new special, which just debuted at Geneva, is something else entirely. Like the new RUF CTR, which debuted last year, it is based on a proprietary chassis full of very un-Porsche traits. The SCR is based on the same tubular structure as the new CTR, and uses the same pushrod-actuated suspension layout. Like the CTR, it’s also heavier than a classic 911. At 1250 kilograms it outweighs the original 1978 SCR by some 140kg, or roughly 12.6%. Fortunately the new SCR doesn’t just make 12.6% more power than the original, it makes over 100% more.

To be clear, the RUF SCR has had several iterations, and up ’til now all have been based on 911s. The most recent SCR was the 4.2-liter 993 based car that debuted last year. The original, also 911 based, debuted all the way back in 1978. While the new car shares its general layout and look with the others, under the skin it’s all RUF.

The new SCR appears to share its chassis and integrated roll cage with the new CTR. Like the CTR, the chassis is a carbon fiber monocoque, and the body is all carbon fiber. The suspension incorporates pushrod actuated coilovers with what looks like wishbones at both ends. The coilovers themselves are made by Sachs.

Power comes from a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six which produces 510 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque; the former at a screaming 8,270RPM. Power is sent to the rear wheels only by a conventional 6-speed manual transmission. This whole package is starting to sound a bit like my current favorite 911 variant: the GT3 Touring.

When the new CTR debuted last year we offered some criticism, which I think was justified. The new CTR simply didn’t up the game enough from the groundbreaking original, despite the remarkable new chassis. While the new SCR shares its name with a past RUF model, it takes the spirit of the 217 horsepower original and hoists it into the stratosphere.

Hopefully RUF, or a generous owner, allows the SCR to go toe-to-toe with a 991.2 GT3 Touring. Not many cars can truly hang with a GT3, but it looks like RUF may have built a worthy rival with the SCR.

Pricing has not been posted online by RUF themselves, though reports of 15 SCRs built per year starting at €650,000 (~$807k US) have appeared elsewhere since the car debuted at Geneva yesterday. Fingers crossed it will be US and California legal as well.

SALON DE GENEVE 2018 – RUF SCR : l’incroyable 911 néo-rétro

RUF SCR : l’incroyable 911 néo-rétro – Cette année, au salon de Genève, c’est une 911 moins anodine qu’elle n’en a l’air qui crée l’événement, sur la stand allemand… non officiel.

Si vous êtes un inconditionnel du jeu vidéo Gran Turismo, vous connaissez forcément RUF, rendu célèbre pour ses transformations sur base Porsche, et plus particulièrement 911. Du statut de réparateur, dans les années 1930, il devient préparateur dans les seventies, avant d’être considéré comme un véritable constructeur automobile, aux yeux de loi allemande, dans les années 80.

Un look de 911 type 964, mais une carcasse ultra-moderne

Une considération qui, aujourd’hui, prend tout son sens, dans la mesure où son nouveau modèle, exposé au salon de Genève, dispose d’un châssis maison. De la Porsche 911 type 964, cette RUF SCR 2018 n’a que le look. Et encore, largement modernisé, comme en témoignent les optiques à LED, et plus particulièrement le bandeau lumineux de poupe, très réussi, ou encore les poignées de portes affleurantes. Mais ce sont surtout les entrailles de cette RUF SCR qui interpellent, s’agissant d’un châssis monocoque en carbone, développé en interne. Il fût inauguré l’an dernier par un autre modèle, la RUF CTR.

Forte de cette caisse auto-porteuse aux matériaux nobles, la RUF SCR affiche un poids total de seulement 1250 kg. Ses trains roulants font preuve de la même modernité, en recourant à des suspensions à poussoirs. Cette technologie est utilisée…See more pictures on Auto moto : magazine auto et moto

Genève 2017 : RUF CTR

RUF CTR (2017)

Ceci n’est pas une Porsche 911. Car si la nouvelle RUF CTR ressemble à s’y méprendre à une 911, elle n’en reprend en fait que peu de pièces, et rend bien sur hommage au « Yellowbird » des années 80. La première CTR, lancée en 1987, a maqué l’histoire du préparateur RUF. Qui revient sans cesse à […]
