Whats important to me is what the top looks like. Notice the side windows and how they are shaped.. looks like the top shrouds lower on the sides when those lower side-windows.

Yeah, it's by Studio torino from Italy if I'm not mistaking. Its was base off 05 Boxster S, the price tag I believe 285k. The soft top convertible was completed detached from the car to be a full time roaster. I think Ruf center will make one for you and possible customize to your like.

It is an amazing car.

As I was informed when I posted this back a couple of months, Studio Torino is actually Ruff.

And I also believe it's gonna be a limited production, they also made a similar version of cayman. However, I prefer the topless. People, time to get your check book out.

I hope that $285K is a mistake. For another $30K you could have a CGT.

It's a good looking car but for less than half of that I could have a full Techart Turbo in the garage.

I'm pretty sure the price is close to 285k. However with the purchase of the car, you do get a bigger engine upgrade. I actually like the look of the car more than the GT, to me it's one of the best looking roaster on the market. And of coz if I ever win the lotto or my business takes off, then I'll put in an order, until then, a Boxster S will do just fine.

I got this email back from Wayne at RUF dallas.

"Thank you for contacting RUF in the USA. Studio Torino is not owned by RUF. It is a separate entity. They are a very well respected coach builder located in Italy."
