The name RUF immediately evokes the 1987 CTR prototype "Yellowbird," the company’s most well-known custom Porsche. We drove RUF’s newest creation, the 220+ mph CTR4, on the autobahn in “Rare Bird.” Northern Ohio Region member Keith Inniss was able to customize his 997.2 Targa without having to order it from the factory. Read about it in “Special Wishes.” In the 1970s, U.S. regulations required automakers to implement crash safety standards in a very short time. Porsche rose to the task with the G-series 911 "Bumper Car," tastefully integrating the bumpers into a timeless design. Very few manual-transmission Cayennes were sold, but Chesapeake Region member Minta Miller is a proud “1.8-Percenter.” Kim John Crumb is the sort of person who pours his heart into everything he does, including his 928 GT. Read about his triumphs, tragedies, and ultimate “Renewal.”

All that, plus preparing your Porsche for sale, Porsche’s Formula E entry, and more.
