RUF CTR

Central, Hong Kong

There is very little information concerning the 964 CTR on the internet, but I am pretty confident it exists after reading about it in a couple of places. I know the original CTR was based on the 930 and nicknamed the 'Yellowbird', but I would like to know for sure that RUF continued the lineage with the 964 before producing the 993 CTR 2 in '93. If so then this is a very rare car indeed. Can anyone confirm this as an original 964 CTR?

UPDATE: After a couple of years still not knowing the full-story on this one, I now have the facts from a Mr Jimmy Yee. It's "This car was originally a late 80's 930 Turbo owned by Tony Cruz. Tony took the Ruf sole distributorship for Hong Kong market in early 90's. He shipped his 930 to Ruf and have it converted into a twin-turbo Yellow Bird spec and at the same time changed the bumpers to 964 version and subsequently fitted a 993 GT2 rear wing. The wheels fitted were BBS magnesium 3-piece racing, which did not last long and started to leak after some years. I made a set of 3-pc wheels for him to replace the BBS in mid 2000's when he wanted to sell the car. I drove the car, which the condition was very poor due to badly maintained at that time. The one who bought the car from Tony had obviously spent a lot of money to make it looks good again." So, there you go. Thanks, Jimmy!
