So, there is the news. It is official. EA will officially lose their stranglehold on Porsche and the rest of us. Finally. To me this the news of the century.
C'mon guys, let's get Porsche in PCars!!!! Goooooooooo!!!!!

Won't they just simply renew it like they did every time before?

Has this been officially announced? I can't remember the last year that went by without "EA/Porsche deal ends this year" rumours, none have ever been true.

This. Until Porsche announces that they won't renew the license agreement, I'm not getting my hopes up.

From what I know, this is true. I have also heard that Porsche wants this as much as anyone but there was nothing they could do about it. A deal someone at Porsche made many years ago.

Porsche is in no way obligated to renew the exclusive contract with EA. They can tell EA to shove off. And I would if I were Porsche. They're missing out on getting their IP in more games which in turn increases their marketing exposure.
The deal as it stands only lines EA's pockets.

I'll believe when I see it as I dont even remember how many times I read claims that Porsche license exclusivity going to expire yet it is still tied to EA.

Finally the day has come (fingers still crossed) that Porsche will be free from the chains of EA. Smiles all around

I think its likely they will exclusively sign a deal with EA or somebody else.

There has been already a discussion has these subject.
For information the contract with Porche and EA ended in the month of Mars 2016.

That article is from June 16th, 2015 - so nothing new and exciting really happened there. I remember the Ars Technica article the whole thing originated from buit afaik nothing new has been written or confirmed since then.

This is wonderful news! I've already strayed a lot from NFS.

Here's hoping that Porsche gets implemented into the game!
