Project CARS 2 will celebrate Porsche’s 70th anniversary in style by adding some very special Porsche content to their racing simulation next week (March 6).
To kick things off, Porsche’s Customer Centre in Leipzig will be coming to Project CARS 2. The 3.7km FIA-certified ‘Porsche On-road Circuit’ designed by famed F1-track designer Hermann Tilke will feature the addition of pit-boxes.
Each of the 10 turns of the circuit mirrors a world-famous venue: The Suzuka S bend, Sebring’s Sunset Bend (where, on the exit, you’ll need a fat dollop of opposite lock), the late-braking test of guts for the Loews-at-Monaco-inspired hairpin, bouncing over the kerbs for the Mobil 1 S bend (a carbon-copy of the Nürburgring Grand Prix), the suck-in-your-breath speed through the Curve di Lesmo, and the triple-turn Spa-Francorchamps Bus Stop chicane―all, along with the final Fuji-inspired Suntory bend, provide a serious test of car and driver.
To complement the famous circuit, developer Slightly Mad Studios will also be adding the Porsche Legends Pack which includes the very first road car from the famous German brand, the Porsche 356. Other legendary Porsche cars revealed are their current GT racer ‘2017 Porsche 911 RSR’, the 1972 Porsche 917/10, the 917/10, nick-named the “Can-Am Killer”, and the Porsche 911 RSR 2.8.
Let us know in the comments if you are looking forward to getting your hands on the new Porsche content, we’ll have more on this next week.
