Ruf came into the public eye in 1987 when they released their Porsche 911
Carrera 3.2-based CTR
, an extremely limited-production model which for several years held the title of world's fastest production vehicle. Wanting an ultra-high performance model to remain among the company offerings, Alois Ruf Jr., the company owner, followed up the original with a CTR2 in 1995, based on the then-new 993-chassis 911 Turbo
. Priced at $315,000 USD
, the CTR2 featured standard all-wheel-drive, Recaro racing seats with Simpson five-point belts, enlarged brakes, an integrated roll-cage, a Ruf manufactured coil-over suspension system and a kevlar body with lightweight glass; power came from a Ruf-tuned version of the Porsche-built 3.6 litre, twin-turbocharged flat-six engine producing and 505 foot-pounds (685 N·m) of torque. A later version of the same engine would bump the power output to .
Capable of running from 0-60 mph in under 3.5 seconds and hitting a top speed in excess of 220 miles per hour (354 km/h), the CTR2 was one of the fastest production vehicles in the world, capable of performing on-par with Ferrari's F50

was the only production car
at the time which performed better under testing.
Ruf even attempted to enter two road registered race modified versions of the CTR2 for the 1997 Pikes Peak......
