Bye bye M3, Hello R Turbo!!

Hey guys! I moved on to another car, it's a 2003 996 Turbo with pretty much all the RUF equipment available. Interior, suspension etc. 550ps/780nm. The M3 is an amazing car, it's good at everything. This car is actually pretty comfy and the Bose is good but when you put your foot on the pedal it really fkn moves.

All the ruf stuff cost the last owner 48,968 USD. It's also equipped with a Quaife differential (4500$), a porsche roll cage (backseats only), Cup 6-piston brakes (5300$)

Apart from the RUF stuff its fully loaded with porsches original equipment.


Previous owner must've been totally nuts..

Try Porsche and you will love it. If you drive one of theese, be careful cus it just might get you killed..












And yeah, bmw was also silver with black rims. Random coinsidence but I like it

Not sure if I would have made the same choice, but congrats. 2003 is kinda... a long time ago.

That's a hell of a car. Surely you will be making a trek to Germany to drive on the derestricted sections of autobahn? I'm sure it's fun on a track with the typical 911 chassis dynamics, but it's altogether different when you have that much power and can just accelerate endlessly on a straight road. Wow! Awesome. Enjoy it (carefully ).

A 2003? No thanks. You're comparing a heavily modded porsche turbo to I'm guessing a near stock M3??? Come to Chicago, so we can get some videos of my forced induction M3 vs your forced induction Porsche.

you can't compare a RUF P Car to a M3. You simply cannot. You can have a S/C M3 with all the goodies, but it will never be a RUF P car.

2003 or not, it's obvious it was well taken care of. I'd take a 03 cared for car over a 05 car from a random dealer

Nice car...bet there aren't many 911 turbos in Stockholm.
I'd have to repaint the wheels silver...I don't think black wheels suit the car as well as the M3.

My M3 was a -07 with black novillo, nav etc etc. And I thought it would be a big step down interiorwise but as this porsche is really equipped from factory with alcantara roof, carbon fiber package etc theres not that much of a difference actually.. Plus its only got 30k miles on the odo.

Now why cant I compare two cars? Its pretty fkn obvious the porsche is faster but that doesnt mean I cant compare them :S I'm not saying any is better so stop being a douche.
