    Assetto Corsa Porsche DLC 4.jpg
    Kunos Simulizioni have been slowly leaking preview images from the upcoming new Porsche DLC following on from the licence announcement back on the 17th June.

    Somewhat of a shock to the sim racing community, Kunos' announcement in June of a successful Porsche licence acquisition has positively set the sim racing world alight with enthusiasm to see how the Italian development team recreate some of legendary marque's most famous vehicles in Assetto Corsa.

    Kunos Simulazioni’s Licensing Project Manager Marco Massarutto has recently tweeted a number of images from the upcoming DLC, leading many to believe a release is not too far away. The latest update to version 1.8 is due to roll out to players at the end of August, many will be hoping to see a similar schedule for the first Porsche DLC instalment.

    To tie in with the licence to present various Porsche vehicles in Assetto Corsa, Kunos will also be providing customized software for virtual experiences within Porsche Performance Centre locations throughout the world. At one such location as part of the recent FIA World Endurance Championship race at the German Nürburgring, Sim Racer Philipp Schalli caught the below in game footage of what appears to be a 911 Carrera S racing on the German Grand Prix Circuit. Click the video below to watch the 30 second snippit of Philipp driving the Carrera S...

    First look - Porsche Carrera S gameplay footage:

    I would like anything that's old, and needs heal and toe gear change.

    Don't care if its Porsche or not. Just old :)

    It's nice the diversity of cars, and don't get me wrong I like to see the latest creation from whoever.. but classic cars are my bag mostly. I'd love to see an old timers DLC or something. PLEASE Kunos, Lotus Cortina would be wicked :D

    I assume the C9 drives like a bobby car compared with this one.

  11. I'd think so too. Considering the early 70's they hadn't started with ground effects or any advanced aerodynamics yet - just BIG wings mostly. (The Chaparrals were ahead of their time in this case though) This is a twin turbo 5.4l +12-Cylinder engine with the rest strapped on as an afterthought :) This will be all over the place.
    I watched an interview with Hurley Haywood once and he said the 917/10 was already a hand full. The 917/30 was even more bad ass :)

  13. Yup. Sad to see the 962C and 917K will not be a widespread, public mod release.

  14. True but the benefits of it being an official release is that they will remain updated and supported for the life of the product. Same thing for the 787B. . Just the yin and the yang I suppose.

    There's one on display at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum as part of the Penske 50th Anniversary display, I may have left some small white smears on the back of it. :confused: :D

  17. Had we had a release of either then they could have become free DLC and thus also be available on consoles. The only benefit to the community is guaranteed sustained update. Hopefully no car parameters once available get removed or turned generic.

    Porsche DLC looks highly desirable by the vocal enthusiasts but so much different DLC, and who knows in how many packs the car will be split, is bound to leave people without content and unable to race others.

  18. I decided last night for some reason to comb through the announcement trailer to see what cars were in it, but as only 2 in-engine cars were shown and the rest was racing footage the likelihood of those cars I could identify being in the DLC are slim to none. But since the 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 and the 935/78 "Moby Dick" were shown racing about in their glory days my hopes are up to see many of those cars soon, though I'm not sure if we'll see the 718 F1 or 718 RS60 but it would be odd to see the stranger and more unknown parts of Porsche's racing history included.
  19. Excellent news. Brilliant even. :cool:
  20. 959 to go along with the F40 would be cool, but it won´t happen. (?)
