    Assetto Corsa has established itself as the leading and benchmark PC racing simulation game thanks to its perfect driving feeling, accuracy of cars and tracks, and last but not least, being the only independent production trusted to feature premium licensing content and top class manufacturers. Assetto Corsa will be coming to console platforms at the end of August 2016.

    Today, Kunos Simulazioni is proud to announce that after more than 12 years away from the hardcore sim-racing world, the Porsche Brand will be coming to Assetto Corsa and that it's working in a close and official partnership with the prestigious car manufacturer to release two DLC packages that will include the most iconic, authentic, awesome cars created by Porsche during its glorious history! The packs are scheduled for release for both PC and console in Fall 2016.

    The partnership with Porsche will allow them to use Assetto Corsa to give the chance to its customers, fans and motorsport enthusiasts, to drive its newest models and to prepare for the Porsche driving experience in several Porsche race centers and dealer events worldwide. Porsche are working closely with Kunos Simulazioni to provide the most accurate Porsche virtual experience ever.

    Marco Massarutto, Executive&Licensing Manager at Kunos Simulazioni:

    I can't describe how proud we are about this partnership with Porsche, and how exciting it is to bring back the Brand in the simracing world. This Fall, Assetto Corsa will be the only multi-platform title to have the Porsche brand in a genuine racing simulation. The gamers, and our fans really want to have the chance to DRIVE the Porsche cars in a realistic manner. it's a privilege, and a big responsability for us. We are working closely with Porsche with the aim to reproduce each single model with the maximum accuracy, and the fact that the same simulation will be used at Porsche race centers will push our team even more to provide the best Porsche virtual experience ever.

    Welcome back Porsche. Welcome to Assetto Corsa, your racing simulator.

    Oh my goodness. If we can have the 918, some of the most iconic road and race cars including prototypes (and judging by the trailer, we can), then this news is absolutely marvellous. Bring it on, guys!

    Can't wait for RBR and some more Italian cars though. :>

    Awesome!
    Is it a exclusive licence or can other SimRacing titles get the right to use Porsche cars too?

    anyone (not on EAs ****list) can get the license, for the right price. forza's the only one to have paid it before now.

    edit -- seems im out of date, EAs exclusivity has probably expired so they presumably went directly thru porsche. still beat forza horizon & gran turismo to the punch tho, quite a coup.

    Marco is just a BOSS. The final goal would be to get the mighty Volvo license for AC. Then it's complete.
