This is my own personal car (I am not a dealer, not that dealers are bad) and I am an avid adult car enthusiast, this is my second Porsche and I am a PCA member…
1998 Porsche 993 RUF Turbo R Conversion….On record at RUF Germany and have RUF Receipts/Paperwork…
Clean Title (in hand)
Exterior – White
Interior – Two tone Navy Blue/Black with Carbon Fiber accents. The blue is truly navy (so darker tone but in pics do to lighting can look purple-ish but it is NOT, it is dark navy)
Miles Total – 35,500 on car, Conversion done at 24K miles….so only roughly
12K range on RUF Turbo R package engine installed at time of conversion…
I bought the car in summer 2012 from a Porsche PCA Member who was the second owner and has owned the car since July 2000; first leasing through his business and then buying out the lease. (I am the third owner.)
RUF Turbo R conversion done in April 2001, car at the time had roughly 24,000 miles. This was a new engine sent from Germany from RUF with RUF techs to do the conversion. This engine now has about 12+K miles on it bringing total 35,500…. Conversion Documented and on Record at RUF Germany; I have paperwork.
Prior owner added many upgrades and available to talk by phone if needed with serious buyer; Bilstien PSS9 Adjustable coil overs, stainless fabspeed exhaust (car sounds amazing… see links to vids below), check valve kit, serpentine belt upgrade, 993 to power 996 seat conversion with white painted seat backs, also many genuine RUF parts…
*RUF front bumper/facia
*RUF rear bumper/facia
*RUF steering wheel w/airbag
*RUF stainless exhaust tips
*RUF badging front and rear
The car has Rain gutters shaved (this is a big job), prior owner also added Porsche TURBO S Ducts (the look amazing) and the Gemballa side skirts…….
When I bought the car I immediately wanted to go through it top to bottom, so we removed engine just to address light oil damp on timing chain covers etc (normal stuff with these cars)..check turbos etc…(again normal issues with these cars after 15 years). We had the Turbo’s fully rebuilt by one of the best shops in the country (have receipts), we replaced cylinder head #2 (all with Porsche OEM part(s)), did upper seals, new seals on all timing chain covers, replaced flywheel and clutch, new engine mounts, new Turbo hoses, and more… detailed engine ticket/receipts in the $25,000.00+ range (Done by TOP notch local shop) I also went through the chassis/car replacing stereo (ipod, hands free, etc)+ new speakers, adding RS Leather door panels, hardwired V1 up by rear view mirror, all new Carbon Fiber Dash+CF Ruf ebrake lever+ have carbon fiber RUF logo sills not yet installed (all CF made in Germany by Marcus Buhler, many know him on RL, his CF is top shelf). We also did steering rod boots and some other things…. I added more RUF parts as well noted below… I have detailed receipts of all work done. I also added…
- RUF Euro gauges (done by Palo Alto Speedometer )
- RUF shifter
- RUF pedal kit,
- RUF 19 wheels powder coat black (matte)
- RUF Carbon Fiber e-brake (custom)
- RUF Carbon Fiber sills (custom not yet installed)
I had calipers (These are Porsche Big Red Turbo Brakes) removed tuned and professionally painted yellow and added RUF script, replaced brake lines, some faded trim pieces replaced on car, a malfunctioning rear view mirror control replaced, removed stock CD changer and factory amp etc.. (have stock parts and door panels etc) All this work and parts was over $15,000.00.
We finally sent the ECU to RUF for a go through as wasn’t reading in DME, and decided to buy a new RUF TURBO R/Porsche ECU all again documented with RUF and have receipts…
This was a near open check book full top to bottom sorting of a very unique and rare Porsche RUF automobile. Very few RUF Turbo R conversions in existence in the states and even less as a 1998, white in color, with so many RUF parts, low miles (only 35.5K on car and not even 16K on RUF engine) + rear wheel drive! Many unique upgrades from S Turbo ducts, rain gutters removed etc….
*Original Porsche turbo books, binder, tools, Full organized folder of receipts and documentation included…
*Clean title and in hand
*Autocheck report clean
*Carfax shows Minor accident in 2007 < I have original police report that says what happened and will provide… minor. ….full disclosure seller here.
(prior owner also available to speak with as noted prior)
…. Car comes with two sets of keys, I have many parts left over like the original door panels, I have a TON of pics of engine work in progress, I have a big piece of matching blue leather hide, both a 993tt wing and a TURBO s wing….
What does the car need? The car IMO needs some paint work to be perfect…. the side skirts added 12 years back the prior owner had fitted to the car and starting to show some light cracks where they meet the car, paint is now 14 years old etc so other areas also could touch upon a pillar, sills/mainly side skirts etc… I may have the paint work done but willing to drop price if someone else wanted to address as someone else may want to do something else with the paint or other …
NOTE – Fresh inspection sticker from Porsche Dealer (Inskip Porsche Warwick RI) just added in May 2013….
