    My 1988 Lancia Delta HF Turbo
    My 1991 Volvo 960 Turbo

      Strictly speaking not a 911, but it's based on it, here's why the 959 was such an important car for Porsche:



      Today, 30 years down the line from the 959s were made, the standard 911 comes with a twin turbo engine, and can be had with AWD.

                Ruf scr: Same carbon fiber tub as the 2017 ctr, 500 hp naturally aspirated engine.

                A carbon fiber body and monocoque let the new Ruf weigh less than the latest Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

                After launching the new, retro-looking Ruf CTR at last year's Geneva Motor Show, the German brand now introduces a similar appearance to the SCR at this year's event. The model mixes the vintage appearance with modern power by packing a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six with 503 horsepower (375 kilowatts) and 347 pound-feet (470 Newton-meters) of torque. The only available gearbox is a six-speed manual.

                Ruf calls the SCR a "gentleman-driver sports car." While the vehicle looks a lot like a late 1980s Porsche 911, Ruf actually uses its own carbon fiber body, and there's a carbon monocoque chassis underneath. An integrated roll cage increases rigidity and improves driver safety. In total, the SCR has an empty weight of 2,756 pounds (1,240 kilograms), so while the Ruf has slightly less power than the new, 514-hp (383-kW) 911 GT3 RS, the SCR is lighter than the 3,152-pound (1,430-kg) Porsche.

                Compared to the CTR, the SCR features a cleaner, less aggressive design. At quick glance, someone could easily think this is a 25-year-old 911. Up front there's a simple front fascia with an array of horizontal slats. The rear features wide fenders with tiny ducts in them. The rear end is smooth, but the multiple opening in the bumper are the major hint that this is something special.

                Ruf introduced the original version of the SCR in 1978 as a hardcore take on the Porsche 911. It packed a 3.2-liter flat-six with tuning to take the output to 217 hp, instead of the stock 180 hp. Ruf also added a more aggressive front fascia with larger inlets, round brake cooling ducts, and an integrated oil cooler. A huge whale tail spoiler sat on the rear deck.
                "Why have this over a Singer?" I hear you say, well, since it's a cf-tub you're not hacking up a classic car to make one, and you have the benefit of a stronger, lighter construction. Either way, some pics:

                  But then again, a Singer isn't as ugly without those ghastly rear lights...

                    those airscoops above the rear wheels aren't the prettiest around either

                    also: you must be the first to describe a singer as a hacked up classic

                      I really like those wheels.

                                Remember this?



                                The "mystery GT2" that Porsche tested last year. It's been out again at Monza, now with modified bodywork and a GT3 R-style silencer:



                                There are some discussions about what this is. Is it a GT2 Cup car, replacing the naturally aspirated GT3 Cup as their spec race car for the F1 support races? Or is it Porsche's answer to the McLaren Senna etc.? Or something else entirely?

                                Speaking of GT3 R, they have had the 2018-model running testing at Monza as well:





                                They were also testing the 2018 991 RSR:

                                  Ginna be at Spa live this weekend for WEC. Six 991 RSR are entered, I CANT WAIT to hear this thing live!

                                  That 991 GT2 Cup, or whatever it it, is so interesting ... maybe they are already testing the 992 (?) GT3 engine in race or street trim, as that is probably gonna be turbocharged by some rumors ...
