If you're a Porsche fan and play Forza Horizon 2, it's time to clear the calendar. Because Porsche—in partnership with Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios—has just released an Xbox expansion pack containing Stuttgart superstars certain to get the Porsche faithful's blood pumping.
Sure, they're made out zeros and ones—like a certain new Tomahawk concept—instead of lightweight composites and steely-eyed engineering determination. But ten cars for ten bucks isn't bad—especially when you consider the caliber.
Though nearly 30 years have passed since it rolled out of the factory, even by today's standards, the 1987 Porsche 959 is still wickedly fast, and remains among the most desirable supercars ever made. Its greatness is basically responsible for the Show and Display law here in the United States.
And the 959 has plenty of company.
The 1982 911 Turbo—an iconic widowmaker if there ever was one—is here, as is a 1970 example of that entry-level stalwart, the 914/6. Hypermodern hardware is represented by the 918 Spyder and Carrera GT, while there's even a (fast) grocery-getter in the mix—the 2015 Macan Turbo. As you'd expect, there are a couple more flavors of 911 in the mix— 2012 GT3 RS 4.0, 2014 Turbo S—plus the Cayman GTS, and relative oddballs like the 1989 944 Turbo.
Of course, there are new Porsche Rivals events and Bucket List Challenges to explore as well. Ladies and gentlemen, start your consoles.
