Just to clarify..., Ruf Automobile GmbH has been a recognized car manufacturer from 1981 and their unique VIN numbers were affixed to any vehicles solely manufactured by Ruf in Pfaffenhausen. These vehicles would have been created using bare 911 body/frame units purchased from Porsche (ordered by a Porsche part number) without any other stampings, numbers or identifiers. Ruf added their unique VIN numbers and ID plates when making a car to order for a customer. These cars did not start life as mass produced cars..., they were not ROW models and they did not exist until they were created by Ruf in Pfaffenhausen.

Porsche VIN cars converted by Ruf would still carry their original Porsche VIN number as the legal identifier of that car.

Contrary to what may be believed, Ruf Automobile has very good record keeping of the cars they have produced and converted. The archived information on my 1989 CTR was extensive and complete.
