    Could this be the true reason you Close the Modding Forums? As Porsche don't want their cars to be available in Assetto Corsa except from the two DLCs?

    I had serious doubts that this brand will ever show up in a real simulation, but Kunos made my day!!!
    @Ensi Ferrum a little bit wild speculation imho. :p

    This is the best announcement Kunos could possibly make. Thank you very much! And you have every right to be proud.

    WOW! Just woke up and the first thing i see is Kunos getting Porsche!!! Well deserved Kunos and i just see AC going upwards and onwards. Continue the autheticity of driving and evolve the sim by adding more and more features. Future seems even brighter now when we know exclusive brands want to hang with Kunos. :) (i mean more of them obviously hehe).

    Well done guys, you rock as always! :cool:

    I want to share my literal first reaction to this news-- similar to the Ferrari announcement.... it was that I am happy for you-- Kunos. Do I benefit? Of course-- the Porsche license in a great sim will be terrific. But first I am happy for the little engine that could that is Kunos ( I think I can, I think I can...).

    Why is that the case? Partially because I started my own business 5 years ago and since then I know what it is like to risk, create and work when you are no longer employed by a big organization. But a large part of it comes from the way you conduct yourselves with your customers and fans. The energy, commitment and positive attitude. The love of cars, driving and racing. And the love for your community. It all comes through to those of us who care enough to look for it.

    So a sincere congratulations to all of you. You deserve the success!

    Bah, I'm getting fed up with saying something can't be done only for Kunos to prove me wrong....... :mad:....:p;):D

    I was super impressed when they were the first to bring us a laserscanned Nordschleife....

    But doing a deal with Porsche is probably the biggest coup in sim racing for a long time, fantastic!

    Amazing to see where this game was has gone from the early days of early access, to now having one of the most wanted, and exclusive brands in the sim racing world join Assetto Corsa. I think I speak for us all when I say huge congratulations to everyone at Kunos for this opportunity! Absolutely amazing stuff guys! :)

    This is finally the time for some manly tears of joy ... thank you Kunos and Porsche! I've been waiting for this moment for years. Almost gave up my hopes, that the Porsche/EA contract will ever end ... now it finally happened!

    I'm happy!

    This is HUGE! :D

    Let's see that again, in slow motion:

    Porsche 919 Hybrid
    Porsche 718 Boxster
    Porsche 911 GT3 RS
    Porsche Cayman GT4
    Porsche 918 Spyder
    Porsche 935
    Porsche 935/78 "Moby Dick"
    Porsche 917K
    Porsche 936
    Porsche 911 GT1
    Porsche RS60
    And lots and lots of 911's

    Come on now the original 911 RSR deserves a special mention including the IROC version.

    I'm not as surprised as others that AC have this license - Ian Bell has dropped heavy hints SMS will have a Porsche license for pCARs 2 - but it is undoubtedly a "big deal" and great news - much bigger IMO than a Le Mans license.

    Not sure where the figure of 12 years come from. GT Legends had the Porsche 906, 914 and 911 RSR in 2005 and GTR2 had 911 993 GT2, 996 RSs, RSRs and Cups in 2006 - just 10 years ago.

    I woke to this news from Twitter and thought that I was still asleep! To my delight I wasn't!

    Honestly the appreciation I have for this team goes beyond words. My wife really couldn't grasp my excitement but very few non car gamers could.

    Although it is an announcement of a manufacture, it is more than that. With the stress of daily life and world events for so many of us, to have a place to escape and enjoy although virtual is priceless.

    Thanks Kunos for all the work and sacrifice you have done for your fans!
