Porsche has offered custom services to its customers for decades, answering requests for everything from special color paint and leather upholstery to hand controls for handicapped drivers. The Porsche Sonderwunsch, or “Special Wishes” Department, created the iconic “Slantnose” front end, which sloped down to the front bumper without the interruption of standard headlights. Instead they folded down into the tops of the fenders, imitating the fearsome look of the mid-Seventies 935 endurance racers that captured the World Manufacturer’s Championship. Meanwhile, another player was gaining traction in the world of custom Porsches: Ruf Automobile GmbH. Inherited by Alois Ruf, Jr. from his father, Ruf became the company of choice for owners looking for a unique Porsche hand-built from a Body in White, or to extract the full potential from their factory-built Porsches. The latter was the case in turning out this 1986 930 Porsche Turbo, which was modified with numerous Ruf enhancements by a Ruf-authorized dealer. The modifications began where it really counts- in the engine room, which is occupied by Ruf’s famous 3.4L BTR flat-6, its designation standing for Group B, Turbo and Ruf.
The BTR was given a larger Group-B-spec turbocharger, bulletproof internals and 935-specification cams to take the car beyond the “standard” Turbo’s already magnificent performance to the outer edges of exhilarating, requiring the Ruf-manufactured “Dogleg” 5-speed to handle its output. Ruf also supplied the intercooler, oil cooler and performance exhaust, 17-inch alloy wheels and instrumentation. Finished in Prussian Blue Metallic with Blue leather, this awe-inspiring machine shows just 29,000 miles and is offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
