High­lights from your Porsche cor­re­spon­dence via email, so­cial me­dia and To­

dear Sir, I read the ar­ti­cle in a re­cent is­sue shin­ing a light on the cars built by Ruf (To­tal 911 is­sue 160). I note your team feels the Ruf cars are su­pe­rior to Singer, but I’d urge cau­tion on this state­ment as re­ally, the two cars can’t be com­pared. Their con­cepts are too dif­fer­ent: one is fo­cused on all-out power, while the other show­cases pure style par ex­cel­lence. Also, their cus­tomers are very dif­fer­ent as a re­sult: some­body who de­sires a Singer won’t re­ally be in­ter­ested in a car built by Ruf, and vice versa. Un­doubt­edly Ruf is very pres­ti­gious and a leg­endary mar­que (know­ing Ruf very well, they would cer­tainly be my pref­er­ence) but on the con­trary I have a great deal of re­spect for Singer and Rob Dick­in­son for his ac­com­plish­ments in the re­cent past – mostly with his ‘at­ten­tion to de­tail’. oliver Sol­heim

All this talk of not be­ing able to com­pare the two cars just makes us want to or­gan­ise a mega group test! While we think you’re right in that Singer and ruf each ap­peal to a slightly dif­fer­ent niche within the mo­tor­ing com­mu­nity, they are of­fered at sim­i­lar price points. there is also huge over­lap in their re­spec­tive ef­forts to de­liver in­sa­tiable per­for­mance along­side the finest stan­dards of fit and fin­ish – par­tic­u­larly their re­spec­tive later cars. ei­ther way, both con­cerns show­case the porsche 911 in per­haps its great­est and most fas­ci­nat­ing light.
