We got a nice surprise in the inbox yesterday, sent from Herr Ruf. Our old friend #27 is safe and sound in the Ruf facility, awaiting the beginning of a full restoration. In each of the shots, the car is posing with Alois Ruf on the right. On the left is Hans. He has 34 years of working on Ruf cars under his belt and is the guy who restored Ruf’s other 901, #37. This guy is the real deal, and will begin work on #27 soon.

It’s cool to see all the special cars that are sharing the bay with the car.
It’s cool to think that 901 is truly the Grandfather of all of these incredible Porsches. #27 looks right at home with the 959, 911 RS and other assorted 911’s.
