Could someone explain the difference and the relationship between Porsche and RUF? Is Ruf a designer like McLaren and Shelby? Is it like Shelby who was paid to make the Shelbies for Ford? Are they two different companies; and if so, why are Porsche Boxers made by both company.
I believe RUF is a performance brand, like Brabus is to Mercedes (not AMG...Brabus :thumbs: ) or Alpina is to BMW!
you are correct sir
So how can games like Gran Turismo 3 get licensing from RUF but not from Porsche? Are performance brands different from the actual companies and do they have rights to those cars? And what exactly is the difference between performance brands and the normal ones; just that they are modded to be better?
from what i know.....these companies take the cars and add their own little
touches to them and thats why they are given different names like you get
the subaru impreza P1 which is touched up by Prodrive right? that means
that Prodrive can now call that car theirs right?
you get the idea now? pretty straight forward really
as for the touches, most of them are performance wise and you get the exterior touched up a little too
another example....is the BMW Z4....Alpina put their own little touches to it and named it Alpina Roadster S
Yeah, I never even knew RUF was Porsche's performance company. How the hell can you more perform a performance car? Yeah performance companys sign a contract with the car company I beleive to give them exclusive rights to that particular fixed up car. Kinda like the Nismo Skyline GTR or Evo8 RalliArt? And might I add Porsche is gay for not giving rights, and they are gay for only including the 328ci BMW on that game...
easy! you add more to it.....you seem to step on the criticising pedal a
little to quick DSMer
why don't you go and look up and compare the porsche 911 gt3 and the ruf r turbo.....im sure you'll see a difference
have fun whilst you doing it and cool that head of yours a little....take it easy on these people please! :wink2:
Exactly... AMG would not count because they are an in house company like Subaru Technica International (STI) to Subaru... RUF is a out of house performance boosting company for Porsche.
