    "Using the lightweight mid-engine sports car Cayman GT4 as its basis, Porsche Motorsport has developed a racing version solely for the track. Geared for performance, just like its drivers.The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8 liter mid-mounted flat-six engine, with an output of 385 hp (283 kW) and a maximum torque of 420 Nm. It reaches a top speed of 295 km/h.

    Tipping the scales at just 2866 lbs. (1,300 kilograms), the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, delivered from the factory with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness, is truly lightweight and provides the car with a unique agility and driving dynamics on the track."​

    RPM LEDS on the middle dash is going to be hellish irritating...
     
  13. "Rain tyres Michelin; tyre size: FA: 24/64-18, RA: 27/68-18"
    I think that wasn't necessary.

  14. Does anybody know the exact time when the pack will be released?
     
  15. I hope they release the season pass today. I think the pack will be live at 13:00 tomorrow (EST)
     
  16. Any words about the price? :)
     
  17. 15 Euro for the Porsche Pass that gives you the three volumes (each one on respective launch date) or 6,99 euro for each pack.

  19. You can hear the engine sound just for a small bit of time and it *seems* to sound terrible.. Also the other cars previewed, to me, they didn't sound that good.. well, let's hope for the 917/30.
    Audio is always been an Achilles heel for this title
