9ff, just like Ruf, is one of those brands that take the performance of a Porsche to another level! And their efforts can be seen written all over the new 9ff GT9-R.

There is a 750 hp version as well for the not-so hairy chested breed. Don’t be fooled though, it can still clock a 20 second time to 300 from 0! The loony engines are mated to ‘boxes that are modified to [More]
