    Our latest collaboration with Porsche Motorsports brings our content right up to date, whilst also reaching back in time to include a quirky classic in the Porsche pantheon. We’re thrilled to deliver you into the cockpits of the latest 992-shaped 911 GT3 R and 911 GT3 Cup cars plus the legendary 944 Cup!

    [​IMG]

    GT3 continues its march to world domination: there are now series all over the world, and next year the GT class at the Le Mans 24 Hours will comprise GT3s as part of the regs change in the World Endurance Championship. The class is also a mainstay of sim racing – and Raceroom already has one of the strongest GT3 offerings out there, covering cars going right back to the first generation. But, this is about now: so the core of this release is the mighty 992-shape 911 GT3 R, which has already been racking up wins in the DTM and other major championships – and a record 14 GT3 Rs will compete in this weekend’s prestigious 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. We’ve cherry-picked the best liveries from global series for you to use to take on the opposing GT3 hordes.

    [​IMG]

    Next up we continue our official relationship with the Porsche Carrera Cup by presenting the grid of the 2023 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. With a bumper grid of over 30 cars (and with the majority of the tracks on this year’s schedule already in Raceroom), you can recreate the frantic racing of this one-make Cup, featuring cars which are arguably more challenging than the GT3 model. With no ABS or traction control allowed, your braking technique and throttle control will be at a premium – there’ll be no just mashing the pedals and hoping the electronics sort it out.

    Aesthetically there’s not much between it and the GT3 R – and in fact the raw specifications of the new Cup car even exceed last-gen GT3. It’s wide, low and brutal: a massive leap on from the 991-shape Cup car and truly a challenging racer to master. As well as the official ‘sprint’ version, we’re also including an ‘endurance’ spec model with more authentic liveries, which will allow the use of ABS and Porsche Motorsports Traction Control; this model is typically seen in 24H Series long-distance events or at the Nürbgurgring in NLS races.

    Book-ending the contemporary Carrera Cup model is the 944 Turbo Cup. This front-engined GT was almost seen as heretical when it was launched back in 1982, but quickly gained a great reputation and in period actually became Porsche’s most successful car in terms of sales. It was born to race, and competed at Le Mans the year before its official launch (badged as a 924 GTP). Five national 944 Turbo Cup series were launched in the mid-‘80s, and it served as the successful forerunner of the Carrera Cup that started in the following decade. We’ve modelled the 1987 car, which puts out more power via a new KKK turbocharger and features a wider track and ABS.

    We’ll be going into more detail on each new Porsche over the coming week as we build to a July launch. Stay tuned – and in the meantime keep enjoying Raceroom’s Summer Sale!

    Any idea on the cost of this DLC? I love the 944 cup. Used to watch the Rothman's Porsche cup years ago. I have no real big interest in the newer 911s, but I'd consider this for the 944 alone. The 944/924 is so overlooked in every game.

    I think they are sold individually at a price of 5€/car with one livery.

    I'd have to figure the cost in CAD, but it's a good start. I generally use just one livery anyway, so a single car purchase works. It's July now, so I'll be looking forward to the release announcement. See cost of a pack or individuals.

    Similar to the On Edge pack, I´d assume as it includes 3 cars and one sub model.

    I would also say this, especially as they are advertised as a pack. So probably again 10€ if nothing funky happens.

    I see two reasons why this is not the case.
    1. no Porsche DLC was sold as a pack.
    2. BMW M4 GT3 is sold for 5 € in GTR3 and the pack contains another GTR3.
    But maybe (hopefully) I'm wrong.;)

    1. Theyve only been doing what we call a pack here since last december and there havent been any porsches released since then
    2. The m4 was always communicated as an in between pack release so i wouldnt use that as a reference
    So im fairly confident youre wrong but we shall see :D

    On Edge is €7.50 normal price for 3.5 cars. I´d expect the Porsche one to be the same.
