    Assetto Corsa  Porsche 718 RS Preview.jpg
    Following on from several previous images of upcoming Porsche models teased by Kunos Simulazioni, the latest reveal from the studio gives fans our first glimpse of the beautiful Porsche 718 RS, in the form of an early in-game 3D model.

    With a total of 24 new Porsche cars due to be added to Assetto Corsa across three separate DLC packages, fans of the German marque can have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks. In order to raise a little bit of anticipation for the DLC, Kunos have steadily been teasing several images from a number of the new cars, and the latest 3D model of the 718 RS is indeed a mouth watering prospect.

    No official confirmation of exactly which cars will form the three DLC packages have been confirmed, however in a recent tweet, Licencing Manager Marco Massarutto tweeted a picture of the brand new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup with the #soon hastag, leading to speculation that the latest iteration of the one make racing series will soon become part of the Assetto Corsa car roster.


    In other news, Kunos Simulazioni have confirmed the following Porsche models will be made available to players for free during the three Porsche DLC packages:

    Porsche Macan SUV

    Eeh ..i mean it is free but....I guess I'll wait for more informations about how those 24 Porsches will be spreaded through DLCs and than pick on or two I like most. probably first DLCs I'm not gonna buy on release ..I paid for way too many cars I have no intention to drive .. and I'll be supporting kunos again when they throw in some tracks

    @Brice.S. is it race car sim though?

  6. This community is in such a sad state. You guys aren't forced to buy Assetto Corsa, you're not forced to play Assetto Corsa, you're not forced to purchase the DLC, you're not entitled to free content after release and you have no right to complain about the kind of free content they release. Yet all you hear and see in the simracing community are complaints and negativity every single time this title is mentioned. Pathetic.

  7. Come on people, at this stage of sim racing you guys don't know how licensing works? You really think any maker will release their racing products licenses without any type of advertising hooked? "If you want our 919 you will have to put our Macan in the game too." Why? because those are their best selling products and they want to advertise it at any type of media they can.
    It is naive, not to say childish, to assume that the developers can choose anything they want from the makers' IPs and have it at their own discretion...

    Well it has lots of road cars and I would say that they do road cars better than race cars, also levante was one of the better cars red pack....so nothing against more road cars, these are not what I will drive but I don't mind them .. I'll wait for few historic pieces and pass the rest (well I'm saying it now..I might end up with all of them)
    Also you can practice taking your kids to school now ... I'm sure there is some city track mod
     
  9. Assetto Corsa gives me the best racing experience on my Oculus Rift CV1. I'll buy whatever DLC they make available to support them.

  10. Seriously, Porsche is 911 and race cars. We could have Touran's and Kadjar's for SUV racing (yeah!), they would not be less fun (and what a fun!).

    I understand Kunos must put those Chelsea/Neuilly/Grünewald vehicles into the mix, but they're definitely not "mouthwatering".

    There is a sim out there that charges you even for a skin...and people are complaining about free content. Oh boy.

  12. I know people say that you can't complain about free DLC, but what a waste to create SUV's. Think of all the classic Porsches that we want that they could make.

  13. but we are forced to fill our hdd with stupid cars...

    they should make dlc with race content and one with city content... so i would buy a dlc too... for now i see no point for me to spend money on dlc where just one or two are interesting -.- i want to race and not to simulate a trip into the shopping mall

  17. It's not about what you want, it's about what Porsche agreed to make available to the sim. And I wonder how many people that are belly aching about SUVs being in the game have ever driven any of these IRL? My suggestion is wait till they're available so you can actually drive them before you start complaining, you might be pleasantly surprised.
