Most recognize Ruf as the world's leading Porsche
tuning firm. In fact, it is classified as a manufacturer and has been in business since 1939. Its maiden Porsche project involved a 1963 Porsche 356, but its most famous piece of work was the 1987 CTR Yellowbird built on the standard 911 Carrera. The car's legendary status was born at an event held on a VW test track when it ran a staggering 211mph, seeing off cars such as the Lamborghini
Countach and Porsche 959.
