Ruf and special Porsche Value dilemma

Just a few thoughts, as this subject has been discussed, however my 2 cents worth as follows. Getting a RUF from the factory or thru a Ruf factory authorized build here in the good old USofA was not that easy or inexpensive. Now the current buyers get to own one for a lot less money. Once the fake (partial) ones are established the "real deal" ones will be harder to get ( $$$$ wise ) than they already are now. It has been a pattern when there are reproductions or partial make overs of the real thing, in this case RUF Kremer etc, that the "not the real deal" cars lower the value of the real ones. Once the real ones are established the prices of those tends to increase. The RUF controversy will sort itself out as to what the parameters of "real" are and then!!!!!. It may very well be such as in Ferrari, Muscle (copo types) of cars and others, there are now established levels of value based on what was original and what was added later albiet due to wrecks, deterioration or upgrades to more current performance standards, etc. What is clear is a factory or factory authorized original configuration are always the most sought after. This now may be the best time to get yours ( if that is your interest) as you will always hear the sad stories of the "I should have bought it " at events years later.
