You Can Build The Ultimate Porsche Garage For The Price Of One $798,000 RUF CTR

The RUF CTR is an incredible machine. It has supercar performance wrapped in the body of a classic 911. Its bespoke chassis and rich heritage makes it a car worth drooling over. There’s a lot of big numbers associated with the RUF CTR; 700 horsepower, a top speed of 225 miles per hour, and a curb weight of only 2640 lbs. However, the largest number is the price of $798,000. For that money, you could assemble the ultimate fleet of brand new Porsches, so we did just that and made the list below. Now the real question is: would you rather own one RUF CTR or a garage full of seven Porsches?

Green Car – Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive – $194,800

This is basically a four door 918 Spyder. With a total output: 680 hp; Combustion Engine: 550 hp; Electric Motor: 136 hp the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive can reach 60 in only 3.3 seconds. It has a top speed of 192 miles per hour and all the modern luxury features you could dream of. The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive is the perfect green car to do you part and save the earth!

Personal Rocket Ship – 911 Turbo S $188,100

The Turbo S is one of the quickest cars in history. This hard launching grand tourer can keep you comfortable while is launches you to the moon. With a 0-60 of only 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 205 miles per hour expect to arrive everywhere very quickly. The luxurious cabin and All Wheel drive make this a very practical rocket.

Track Day Bro – 911 GT3 – $143,600

For the track day bro inside all of us, there’s the 911 GT3. The GT3 is a technological marvel. Now with a 4.0 liter Flat-6 the revs to 9,000 rpm and produces a staggering 500 horsepower. This track day special now comes with the all important 6-speed manual to make this the raw 911 every garage needs.

Family Car – Cayenne GTS – $97,200

Since you might have to haul people or stuff the Cayenne GTS is here. This surprisingly fun to drive SUV is also surprisingly fast. This 440 horsepower SUV can reach 60 in only 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 163 miles per hour. It can also tow 7,716 lbs making this a very practical SUV for your garage.

Commuter Car – 911 GTS – $119,000

For your daily commute the 911 GTS is the perfect companion. It offers the performance needed to get to work on time with the comfort needed to arrive fresh for the day. Its torquey Flat-6 is well behaved in traffic but still, delivers an impressive 450 horsepower. Its subtle exterior won’t alert your coworkers that you’re making far too much money.

Convertible – 911 Targa 4S – $122,600

The Targa 4S is the perfect 911 for a sunny day. Its folding roof exposes you to the world around you while looking absolutely stunning. With 420 horsepower this isn’t some Miata, it can reach 60 in only 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 188 miles per hour.

Weekend Toy – 718 Cayman – $53,900

Sometimes you just want to drive a cheap car you don’t care about. In this garage, the 718 is simply a weekend toy you can mercilessly beat on with no remorse. Mechanical sympathy is non-existent when you’re driving your cheapest Porsche.

 

So there it is, a list of seven amazing Porsches for the price of one RUF CTR. Now obviously these cars won’t be nearly as collectible as the CTR but it’s incredible to see where your money could go. I’m sure RUF will have no problem selling all 30 CTRs to excited customers. But if this was my money, I’d choose the seven car garage full of Porsches.
