Though it's not entirely built from the ground up (the front crush zone and doors are from a Porsche 911), Alois Ruf's new CTR3 supercar is his grandest foray into independent manufacturing yet. The result is an exponentially refined car with mind-bending performance. Ruf has been improving on Porsche 911s and winning awards for 40 years; the road is littered with people who have tried and failed to better the mighty Porsche, so his talent is unusual. The CTR3 will set you back $550,000, but for 700 horsepower, 656 foot-pounds of torque, and a body to die for, it just might be worth it. Or you can spend a mere $345,000 for a Ruf RT12, a 530-horsepower enhancement of the current 911.
