Personally I would change the tail. That car would look nice in a more traditional fiberglass turbo tail painted all yellow.

Agree on the tial, also think the wheels need changing, the later Ruf's look great on the 993 but they look awkward on that, some older Ruf Speedlines would look great. All just my opinion of course

The add also says that it has 996 headers, those are 993tt headers, the 996 ones obviously don't have heat exchangers on them. Also does it have ITB's? Looking at the duel intake set up it can't have a single throttle body, or am i missing something? Would love to know the exact build of the engine, seams like a really interesting set up

Second owner became a PCA member after he bought it. Read on. I almost pulled the trigger on this one when it was offered about 3 years ago by the original builder for the first owner. As my memory serves me he built it a number of years ago in the east coast area and was a reputable Porsche shop when I discussed the car with them. The owner then moved to Texas and it did not get good service. He sent it back to the original builder to get it straightened out. A fellow from Florida bought it and still had a few minor problems as it had a problem with oil in the turbo. Wrong turbo sump set up I think. I encouraged him to Join the Porsche club in the Miami area for some input on getting a good stiffening roll bar as I mentioned the flex problems it had ( one of the reasons I passed on it ) with that much power and to attend some DE to get good advise and to learn how to handle it as it was his first time rear engine car. He was real happy with it then except the color which is the Goldish Porsche yellow. We stayed in touch until he decided to trade it maybe last year so that is who may have it now. It did have extensive and complete records of everything since day one. It had some unusually good stuff like a RUF comp 6 speed so they spent some real bucks on it when built.

Lots of nice pieces and parts in that car.. however, I've just never been fond of cars with big hp & torque coupled with an open top! But that's just me..

I agree with Paulie...never a big fan of monster HP cabrios and I really am not a fan of the yellow color either. Call me Grinch...

This car has been for sale so long now, think "years"....I looose count. It is almost an orphan looking for a kind warm home \ owner...hope that does happen.

Build sheet is I-M-P-R-E-S-S-I-V-E!!! With much $$$, but seems like no-one has shared the full bolt to bolt build. Would love to see the engine management and intake manifold for example.

The price is a screaming deal. Makes me want to buy it just to snatch the TT engine and 6speed Woof tranny put in my '89 engine and trans into it and then sell it.

Now your dealin. That car with a stock motor/trans/tail/brakes
/wheels ( if yours has this stuff ) would be easier to sell to a broader market than how it is now. . That running gear has to be easily worth the difference. By the time you transfer parts the economy might just be humming again. A stylish yellow 89 Porsche 930 convertible with 30ish miles should be a hot car for some dude / dudette.

Its funny- look at the wire harness- it is the stock motronic system with map-sensing on an individual throttle body setup.

Now my question is, where can you even find RUF parts to put a car like this together.

Another question is how do you obtain 700 horsepower through 2 T-25s?

Most be a riot to drive, just not my style.

I agree. Ditch the tail. A stock one would look better. Also, lose the roll bar and the "fast and furious" sound system. They look stupid.

I'm ok with the wheels.

Now that you mention that harness.. and I look at that IC it looks rather Protomotive-ish in design/styling. Big hp tuning using stock Motronic system is their trademark.. so maybe this was initially one of their builds.
The throttle linkage and placement of ancillary pieces looks very well thought out.

I was scratching my head about the Ruf parts also. Most of that stuff you can buy directly from Ruf if you're inclined to spend the cash.. however, that trans & the calipers would really set-you back. Maybe somebody parted a total...

voitureltd: I'm liking the "slow&rusty" line of thinking too!!

May be it's because of the IC size......can't work with the stock one.....

I completly agree with the fact that that kind of engine is better in place in a "coupé" than in a "cabriolet"........I never saw racing 930 cabriolets.....

I may be wrong but the intercooler looks more like a Motorsports Design (MODE) piece.

I remember when I was into looking for a high HP TT street car this could have changed into my hands for under $40K, so maybe there is some wiggle room in the price. I opted for the X Pelican AMAC 930 as it was a coupe with no doo da stuff, that needed 96lb injectors to feed it vs the 50 some lb that this car uses. I also thought the 700 HP claim was a bit optimistic with that engine management/ intake and turbo set up. Seems to me that 125 sustainable RWHP per cylinder is just about max, in the best all out build. Still very tempting.

What's the gizmo between the rear seat and above the trans tunnel?
