Ruf is a German company that has been redesigning Porsche cars since the seventies. Having become an internationally recognised brand, it was given its official status as a manufacturer. In 1998, it introduced its vision of the 993 Porsche Turbo. Its cam shafts, turbos, electronics, exhausts, and ground connections are made in-house. The venerable Porsche went from 408 to 490 horsepower, while its unmistakable look was improved upon with new rims, logos, and a front spoiler.
