    I’m a bit cornfused, why would Porsche be giving ruf chassis to work on and ultimately make better than the original car. If they make a car that looks identical to a porsche but makes way more power wouldn’t people gravitate more towards that car? Thus reducing the sales of Porsche’s? Unless Porsche and Ruf made a deal of some kind where Porsche took a percentage of all the cars Ruf sold but nothing like that was mentioned in the video.
