Winter Boxsters For Sale

Just saw a this for sale here in the DFW. RUF powered Boxster with a 3.8.

I can't stop drooling.

Good question. I don't see any on the pics. Cars like this sells for twice that amount. Would love a test drive...

It's weird because it doesn't have any of the RUF badging normally associated with a RUF conversion. I'm also confused about what RUF did exactly.

RAC was a authorized RUF dealer until a year or 2 ago. It appears they installed a 3.8 engine & that's it.

I maybe wrong but I didn't think the stock 3.8 was putting out those kind of numbers.

@Bypro,Yes it seems they stop using that name on your time frame. Want to speculate why? There is a ton of indies in around that area. With the dealership pretty close too.

Man that is indeed a crazy steal, for someone who understand cars anyway... technically I mean loll Not for the warranty seekers!

Is it just me or that car could be tricked to look killer also. Nice little deal right there, I think

If I were to speculate: franchise fee too high for the return, disagreements with Mr. Ruf,etc.

RAC does seem to run a professional shop, I e-mailed back & forth with Hans a few years ago trying to buy a broken 3.2L engine from a forum member.

A new authorized RUF dealer opened in Detroit around the time the DFW one stopped

Power rating does seem high despite the custom tune & what ever bolt-ons it may have

Not that it matters with this build, but that car would look so much better with a black top.
