    I prefer racing cars over street cars and Porsche has quite some history there. If even a third of the cars showing the video are included....
    :confused:

    I genuinely believe a statue for Marco should be erected. What tactics is that man using to get these licenses.

    So they announced two packs full of Porsches! So exciting!! Instabuy for me!
    Please please let the 917/30 and 962C be part of them. Two great wip projects by talented modders from the community that deserve to be part of the game.

    The more you think about it, the better it becomes. Have we ever seen a sim before with Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini and Porsche all represented? Just.. wow.

    If Stefano was half as good as Marco at getting licenses we would already have rain, night, timed races and false starts on AC.

    Securing a licence from god to recreate rain and night might prove difficult... ;)

    It I were him I'd just do it and see if he gets slapped with a copyright claim :D
