Ruf 997 Targa

So Porsche super tuner Ruf, is trying it’s hand at producing a targa version of the 997. They apply their usual tricks of bumping the n/a engine up to 400hp and add some classic Ruf styling cues like wheels, badging and interior accents. But unlike the Sport Classic styled by Porsche, this Ruf interpretation of the 1967 targa soft back misses the mark. Especially with it’s snap down tonneau back and oddly raked  center hoop. To add insult to injury, they want $250k for it. Hell the Excaliber from 1979 looks better visually balanced. Sorry Ruf, you’re better off sticking to engine tuning.
