One of the most controversial and sometimes infuriating parts of sim racing is the knowledge that EA has had a stranglehold on the rights to feature Porsche vehicles in racing titles. The Forza Motorsport series used to feature the German automaker, but it was removed prior to Forza Motorsport 5. much to the chagrin of Porsche fans. Now, Porsche is making its return to Forza, and it’s first implementation is the now-released Porsche Expansion for Forza Horizon 2!
The Porsche Expansion, which retails for $10 USD, includes 10 different cars, spanning 45 years of Porsche history:
1970 Porsche 914/6
1982 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3
1987 Porsche 959
1989 Porsche 944 Turbo
2003 Porsche Carrera GT
2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (997)
2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S
2014 Porsche 918 Spyder
2015 Porsche Cayman GTS
2015 Porsche Macan Turbo
Now, while many will be looking forward to driving the 918 Spyder, I don’t see a huge following forming behind the Macan Turbo. That could be just me, but who knows. One car I’d love to tweak out would be the 914, as that almost was my first car!
The Porsche Expansion is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and it looks to be a good value ($1 per car) if you’re a Porsche fan. Which car are you most looking forward to taking for a spin? Let us know in the comments!
NOTE: Forza Motorsport 6 WILL also include Porsche at launch!
