The 911 is unique.

This seems like old news, I know… What other car has been selling for more than 50 years and each new generation sells like hot cakes ? But there’s even more to it.

Just at the recent Geneva show, P-fans were in awe, both of the new GT3 RS brought by Porsche, but also of the recreation (rethink ?) of a classic 911 by RUF in the form of the all carbon new CTR. What other car can surprise us simultaneously in such two different (but also different) ways ?

A legend was born.

Only a few days back, RUF published for the first time the full clip of Yellowbird circling the Nordschleife. Afterwards,  Yellowbird became the stuff of legend and did wonders for the visibility of RUF.

Many years later, it’s still entrancing to watch. The courage and skill the driver demonstrates, still awe us all. Just notice the crazy angles he applies to the wheel in trying to manhandle the beast !

I bet that any modern 900hp-plus hybrid/phev/ice hypercar is easier to handle round the Ring than the CTR’s puny 400hp were at the time.

More RWB love…

This time from Thailand. The last minutes are great for showing the incredible variety that can be found on 911-land !

RWB revisited.

Nakai-san again. Hard to see him at work and not think of an old time artisan doing his thing… like a 21st century Michelangelo…
