    Following the release of the hugely popular Porsche Volume 1 DLC package for Assetto Corsa, Kunos have continued to release introduction images and videos showcasing some of the new cars included in the latest release.


    In order to keep you all up to speed on the latest images released by Kunos, I've put together a quick little round up of the videos and images released since Porsche Volume One went live back on the 25th October. With videos for the mighty 911 Carrera S and 935/78 Moby Dick, plus some nice screen shots of the instant club racing classic Cayman GT4 and the 1960's era Silverstone, alongside the free Panamera G2 Turbo (yes it was good to drive in the end, told you so ;) ), the round-up below brings us right up to date with the Volume One official footage released so far.

    Don't forget, the best way to enjoy these new cars is to race them online with your fellow sim racing fans, and we at RaceDepartment have you covered! Keep an eye out in the Assetto Corsa League and Club Racing section for some pretty cool events coming up in the next days and weeks...

  3. Extremely happy Porsche is in a sim. Mad props to Kunos for hooking that up and mad props to Porsche for making the decision of letting their cars come into the sim world.

    About the first batch of cars: yeah some instant fav's. LOVE the oldies, and the GT4 was a very nice addition that is fun to drive and race with. 918 Spyder is fun too + introduction of even more tech is always nice (like rear wheel steering etc). Good stuff all around. :thumbsup:

  7. The 74 RSR 3.0 overtook the Cobra as my favorite car in the game, so money well spent for me.

    I like the RSR, 917/30, 935, Cayman GT4, 918 Spyder and Carrera S, so best bang for the buck:D

    As I said in the AC forum. There was a lot of wasted time in wait for Porsche in the sim world. First step is very nice but it whets my apetite. Obviously RSR 3.0 was the first choice. I like this little beast very much.

    How did they do a laserscan of a 1960s track? Do they have a timemachine?? :p
     
  11. Scan the modern parts and the old parts that are left and reconstruct it.
     
  12. I'm glad to have the Porsche brand in modern simracing.
    I've yet to try either of the Caymans or the 918.
    The 917 is a lot of fun to drive...as is the Panamera.
    The 930 doesn't handle anywhere near it's full-sized counterpart at default settings.
    Though it can be made to feel better with setup changes, the car understeers way too much out of the box. The brakes are nowhere near as effective as the real car.
    That was my only disappointment to date.
    All-in-all...a good first try.
    Let's hope the second part of the release holds a bit more true to factory handling.
    Porsche cars are a lot of fun to drive once you respect the power.

    Bunch of understeering pigs. I wish I could get a refund.
     
    • Haha Haha x 2
  14. You either need to learn how to set up a car or you are simply frustrated because a car doesn't drive exactly as you expect. Meanwhile i'll do some more sliding in the '73 RSR.

    Typical AC fanboy, someone doesn't like the content so he doesn't know how to setup a car. it's got more understeer than my moms peugeot 106. A bit weird for such a widely praised drivers car don't you think? Also adjusting the line with trail braking or throttle control simply doesn't work on most of them. The physics either have been dumbed down to make it "easier" to drive or they just ****ed up. Let's hope they wil patch it.
     
  16. I'd like to be the last one to tell you AC is better than anything else, but you should elaborate on which car understeers more than your moms 106 and why. Corner entry, corner exit? What are your steering inputs? How did you set up the car? How hard are you pushing? What tyres? Record a video and show it. Calling me a typical fanboy and claiming every car understeers like a pig is weak. I simply disagree with you and can't imagine how you can claim this.

    The modern 911 for instance, it doesn't matter if you're smooth or agressive, if you're coasting or have the throttle pinned, it always understeers on corner entry. That's not how journalists describe the 911 at all. Are they all wrong?
    Also i haven't checked the setup of this particular car but it is a road car so what should there be to tune? A bit of caster or camber won't do miracles unless the stock setup is really **** which I doubt.
     
  18. It does understeer a bit on entry, I have to agree with you. But that's just one car..
    Also here's an interesting quote: "While the Porsche 911 Carrera S does allow very slight understeer in the comparison test, the GTS corners with much greater agility."

  19. Hm.

    If the 911R does that the Carrera S is going to be the same or worse. Not that slight understeer is necessarily negative - 'slow in fast out' is the key with these cars and if you keep yourself at that I personally don't find the car to rotate that unwillingly.
