Companies like Singer and Emory Motorsport make a business out of old Porsches, particularly updating them to provide performance on par with modern machines. The Ruf CTR Anniversary is my new favorite take on this idea.

For a different spin, Ruf doesn't take an existing Porsche and rebuilt it. Instead, the CTR Anniversary rides on mostly carbon fiber monocoque, and the exterior panels are carbon, too. The result is a machine that looks like a 1980s 911 but benefiting from modern technology. The twin-turbo 3.6-liter flat-six engine with 700 hp (522 kW) should offer plenty of power for the lightweight coupe. I'd love to drive one, but I'm not holding my breath, either.
