Alois Ruf on Weight (in his '65 Coupe)

"Driving an early 911 is an experience on itís own:

Itís 1000 kilos. Today weíre driving 1,600(kg) and the 500 horsepower that we use today feel different to the 130 (hp) we drove at that time because the extra weight, the 60% more weight is not really compensated by the extra horsepower because there is no compensation for extra weight. There I nothing better than saving weight in an automobile."
