This month, we've been celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Road and Track comparo piece that introduced the Ruf "Yellow Bird" 911 to our motoring databank. (Celebrating to ourselves, that is.) Now, the Porsche tweakers who stunned the world with a 211-mph Porker are rolling out a "25th Anniversary" edition. It's the 3400 K, and comes in coupe and cabrio versions. They're mild by Alois Ruf's standards — 400 hp and 324 lb-ft of torque at peak — but they're billed as entry models. That's because — surprise — it's based on the Cayman and Boxster. They're no record breakers, at a top speed of 181, but as an introduction of the joys of Rufdom, they could be a bargain at any price (79,800 Euros coupe, 75,100 Euros roadster).
3400 K "25 Jahre Jubiläms-Edition"
With the "25th anniversary edition" model RUF offers an exciting entry vehicle for an attractive price. The 25 years of experience of RUF Automobile GmbH as an authorised automobile manufacturer are the reason for this edition model.
RUF offers the 3400 K in two body versions - as a Coupé (price Euro 79,800 plus VAT) and Roadster (price Euro 75,100 plus VAT).
The agile mid engine concept in combination with a powerful torque and high revving Kompressor engine offers effortless performance and driving pleasure at the highest level.
