Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Porsche 911 (RUF Kompressor)

By Sajeev Mehta

When
you realize the Walther P22 in your hand is no match for your
opponent’s Colt Python .357 Magnum… that's a bad thing. By
the same token, one look at the sick power of a force-fed AMG cruise
missile or a glance at the latest big-cube ‘Vette can ruin the
fashion-conscious Porschephile’s entire day-- no matter what they
say about pedigree, finesse and handling. Yes, today's horsepower wars
hit zer dicht to Zuffenhausen's 300-ish horsepower heartland. Luckily,
Porsche lovers have a secret weapon: the RUF Auto Centre.

The
internationally-known Porsche tuning-haus offers an extensive selection
of 911 eye candy. Case in point: our tester’s front and rear
valances. The RUF-exclusive bodywork is deeper and more forward
thinking than stock, giving the 911 an altogether keener stance-- and
virtually guaranteeing some expensive scuff repair. RUF’s
five-spokes are mercifully, purposefully flat and, mission critically,
a half inch wider at both ends. Back in bling world, the RUF appearance
package adds a bi-plane spoiler sporting both painted and exposed
carbon-fiber wings. Like, awesome.

RUF’s
retina-scorching red runner may attract more attention than a stock
Carrera, or Adriana Lima, but metrosexual Teutonic purists rejoice: our
tester’s interior upgrades were limited to a new RUF-embossed
airbag cover and heat-soak friendly aluminum shift knob. Of course, the
RUF's meat and potatoes lie under that spoiler. It’s all about
the Bauhaus blower: die Kompressor uber alles.

American
consumers buy into the experience via RUF’s modish Dallas digs.
There, in search of Biblical power, donor engines are rent asunder; RUF
moves the legendary flat-six’s compression ratio into
boost-country via thicker head gaskets. Unlike other tuners, RUF
developed their Kompressor package from scratch, carefully mating
Porsche’s Germanic precision to the raw grunt of a boost-fed
American dragster. While only a fully trained and licensed 911 mechanic
understands the mechanical purity of RUF’s engineering,
there’s not a driver alive who won’t appreciate the 100
extra ponies crammed under the RUF.
