Renowned Porsche tuner RUF first launched the RCT back in 1990 as a restomod service based on the 964-gen 911. Powered by Porsche’s penultimate air-cooled engine and wearing the “whale tail” spoiler of its 70s predecessor, it’s a classic that continues to captivate auto enthusiasts to this day.
If you’ve been wishing for one of these unicorns straight from the source, you’re in luck. With the addition of the RCT Evo to its “Modern Classics” program, RUF is putting the 964-gen restomod back on the menu. Like the original, the Evo features a turbocharged 3.6L flat-six engine good for 425hp and 420lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed manual, the car will climb to a top speed of 199mph. Inside, the Evo gets treated to a full-on aesthetic overhaul, with diamond-quilted seats, color-matched stitching, and bespoke instrument gauges making up just some of what you can expect. And when it comes to performance upgrades, there are modern add-ons aplenty. Available in either wide or narrow body styles, buyers can spring for a full carbon-fiber body if their pockets are deep enough. What’s more, there are options for carbon-ceramic brakes, center-lock wheels, and even an integrated roll cage. Have one your way from $425,000.
