This is the new RUF SCR. For those unaware, RUF is classified as a manufacturer, with its own VINs, but traditionally they’ve used Porsche bodies-in-white and other parts to assemble their cars. Not the SCR though.

It looks like a retro-fied 964, a la Singer, but it’s actually a carbon fiber monocoque in the middle with front and rear unspecified metal (aluminum maybe?) subframes and a steel roll cage. The body panels are all carbon fiber, and the lighting is all LED.

Other highlights include a listed weight of 2756 lbs, multilink suspension at all corners with pushrod-actuated remote reservoir coilovers, and a 4.0 liter normally aspirated water-cooled flat six making 503 hp, redlined at 8800 rpm. It’s also very green, with plaid seats. The interior floor is bare carbon fiber with very fancy floor mats on top of it, the pedals are titanium, and the spoiler out back is a fixed duckbill style piece.

Here are a bunch of pictures in some kind of vaguely artisinal feeling warehouse type space.
