Upon the announcement of Porsche coming to iRacing everyone was saying "first Assetto, now iRacing, next Project CARS".The majority of people on iRacing &YouTube are saying this.But do you think so?

My opinion
I want Porsche as long as they are at an equal and are not made out as a special manufacturer.

I have all the Porsche in AC. Never been a Porsche fan, they have 3-4 good iconic racing model and then all 911-looking like.
I had to read names to recognize the model.

Me neither and I still have to buy the Porsche pack. What bugs me it that it misses the exact Porsches I DO like. Like the 959,928,968,944 and 924. I don't like the handling of the rear-enders(I realise the 959 is also one, but it's an icon). Never have never will. To me they feel like driving a fast FWD(liftoff/brake oversteer hell) combined with a little devil called super oversteer when you break traction and do manage to cause poweroversteer because of the heavy back end. It's just not the way my driving works and I don't want to adjust to that. :)

I love the Porsche pack in AC. They're different to drive, but that's part of the fun of sim racing, trying different cars. I don't have any problem adjusting back and forth. It's not like I'm making a permanent style change, I'm just learning a new car. Like driving an historic era model, or a manual h-shift. Each requires a different touch and driving style. But learning them doesn't ruin or spoil anything in the long run. In fact, I find that learning different cars, makes me a better driver overall.

I can of course adjust, but I get way less enjoyment from that driving style. It's not as bad as FWD(which I can't enjoy at all even if I can be competitive if I put my mind to it), but I don't get a kick out of it. Of all setups I love a well balanced FR(front-engined rear wheel drive) car way above others. Second would be mid-rear.

I would say the cars in the PP are all quite different from each other to drive, obviously the le-mans race cars differ greatly from the road cars & then the road cars are all very different to each other with various engine placements. Would have been nice to see one of there front engine sports cars in there but I think its still a good selection.

991 Carrera S rear engine rwd
935 78 Moby Dick rear engine rwd

Kunos always said that Assetto Corsa would be the only simulation to feature Porsche in 2016. Their announcement was very carefully worded.

I am very curious to know which models make it to PCars2. With Le Mans and Le Mans Classic set to be included it would be great to get a few old sportscars and the almost guaranteed 919 Hybrid 2016.

As Ian says above 'None of the famous brands are missing' so I presume that will include Porsche, after what was produced in Pcars any manufacture who doesn't want to be included in Pcars2 would be pretty stupid

I wonder if the EA exclusivity finally being over means Porsche can be included in the base game, or if it will still be only possible by DLC/expansion packs (Whether this is for recovering the price of the license, or of Porsche's demand, or both).

It's going to feel really weird seeing Porsche in Pcars, I cannot wait for the first official screenshots confirming it.

I mean the evidence for it is incredibly strong, Ian himself strongly implying it, EA response saying the Exclusivity has ended, Iracing getting the brand and the leaked screenshot apparently from Pcars 2.

I think the question is not if but how many cars we get, i'm hoping for a diverse selection of Porsche & Ferrari. I don't think they include a classic lemans track without iconic endurance cars to go with it.
