    Porsche Pack Vol 3.png
    Well we all like information don't we? After the long wait to see what Kunos and Porsche have in store for fans of the game, we now finally have all the pieces of the puzzle in one place. Once again thanks to the official Assetto Corsa Steam Store page, we see that Volume 3 of the Porsche DLC packages releases on December 20th, and again contains a goodly selection of the manufacturers finest examples of road and race machinery.

    Unlike the previous two DLC's, Volume Three leans heavily towards purpose build race cars, interestingly even including the new for 2017 911 GT3 RSR and 911 GT3 Cup, cars sure to take the national and international headlines when they hit the world stage next year. Of course as can be seen in the included images in this article, fans of classic content have something to look forward to as well, with the inclusion of the 908LH (bottom of page) and 917K (below) - a car made famous as the machine that took Porsches first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971.

    In a bit of a disappointing move however, Volume Three contains the 2016 919 Hybrid, the car that Mark Webber will make his final WEC appearance in next month at Bahrain, that many people will feel rather similar to the 2015 variant offered in the Volume Two package. Ok ok I know its nothing to get too upset about, seeing as the car has undergone substantial 'under the hood' chances since the previous season, but personally I feel a little disappointed as I would have liked to see another model from the brand in its place. Saying that, if the three DLC packages sell well, nothing to say Kunos won't consider releasing further cars from the brand in the future...?

    You should edit both last Pack Posts together!
    To less time around them.
    But thx for the write up!:)
     
  3. Most come the 25 th will be buying the pass its the only way for this one.
    What we need to know next is what other free cars or other odd Porsche cars could be coming our way.
    I really hope they make more packs.
    So many classic cars & racing machines are still waiting in their Historic collection.

    :)

    I've done them separate because I'm quite sure that I'll need to link back to them for future articles. A little trick of the trade that keeps things simple further down the line :D

    Got the feeling RD is sponsored by Kunos considering the ****-ton of featured AC articles lately :rolleyes:

  13. Being strictly late '60s and early '70s enthusiast only, 3rd one will be my favourite, with 1st close behind, each of them having 2 cars I'll drive. Not much, but still for that price it's an excellent deal. Nothing interesting for me in 2nd pack (well, maybe 962s, just a little bit), but by buying season pass, I'll get it sort of for free anyway, so why the hell not. Very good pricing policy on their part.
     
  14. We'll get images of the 2017 911 RSR probably (with almost certainty) after the LA Auto Show.

  17. Nah, that's because AC is the only platform, where something big and interesting has been going on recently. Wait for studio 397 to release their first rF2 content, though and people will be all over that topic, anticipation for it is even stronger.

  18. 2017 Porsche 911 GTE will be amazing! Never expected them to get that one.
     
    • Agree Agree x 2
  19. This one I'll buy for 911R. Let's see what Kunos can really do :cautious:

    BTW - What happened to HistorX and DRM Revival?
