Ruf Automobile was founded in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Germany by Alois Ruf Sr.
Ruf’s son, Alois Jr. grew up a passionate sports car enthusiast. In the early 1960s, he began servicing and restoring Porsche automobiles out of his father’s garage. Then, upon his father’s death in 1974, Ruf Jr. took over the business and began to focus on modifying Porsches, the 911 in particular.
The following year, the first Ruf-modified Porshe was born, and he first complete model arrived in 1977.
