Legends Pack is now available for Project CARS 2 on Xbox One, PlayStation
4, and PC. This add-on celebrates the seventieth anniversary of the famed
German manufacturer and introduces nine cars from Porsche with the manufacturer’s
official FIA-certified test track, the ‘Porsche On-road Circuit Leipzig,’ which
makes its racing game debut in Project CARS 2.
The cars featured in the Porsche Legends Pack include the 911
Carrera RSR 2.8 and the 911 RSR, as well as the Porsche 917K and the
ever-famous Carrera GT. The nine Porsche cars included represent many of the
most famous and infamous cars that have rolled out of Zuffenhausen and
Weissachover over the last seven decades.
Below, we’ll take a deeper look at each of the cars included
in the Porsche Legends Pack, as well as the Porsche Leipzig Circuit, complimented
by the official descriptions from Slightly Mad Studios.
Race to glory with the two icons that carried Porsche to its
first taste of sportscar domination―the 395kmh Porsche 917K, star of the
Hollywood blockbuster movie ‘Le Mans,’ and its sister car, the feather-light
and agile Porsche 908/03 Spyder. These two cars, in tandem, ruled the World
Championship of Makes.
Follow Porsche’s heroic journey into the heart of North
America’s Can-Am series with the Beast of Zuffenhausen, the 1,200hp ‘Turbo
Panzer’ Porsche 917/10 whose raw, wild and untamed power demolished everything
in its wake.
Slide into the seat of the supreme racing 911 of them all,
the 911 Carrera RSR 2.8, whose beauty was matched only by its peerless triumph
in European GT racing. The first 911 to come with a wing, based off the first
road car to ever have wider rear tyres than fronts, the RSR 2.8 brought Porsche
its first taste of GT-class dominion.
Match your strength against the colossal whale-tailed ‘Moby
Dick’ that combined the turbo technology perfected in Can-Am to the agile
handling from the RSR to create the Porsche 935/78, and its long-tail
evolution, the 935/78-81, two brutal torque-monsters that churned out 150 wins
between them and sunk the hopes of a generation of rivals
Cure your sideways-action fix from the most ferocious rally
cars in history with the street version of Porsche’s Group B race monster―the
Porsche 959 S. The world’s fastest production car in 1987, this twin-turbo,
all-wheel drive technological marvel went on to define every generation of
supercar that came after it.
Find your courage against the car that was tested and tuned
around the very track that comes with the Porsche Legends Pack: a supercar
powered by a secret F1 V10 engine and encased within the shell of an abandoned
Le Mans prototype: the 2004 Carrera GT, the supercar that scared a generation
of enthusiasts and instilled fear in every driver that was ever brave enough to
try and tame it.
Complete your journey through seven astonishing decades of
legendary Porsche performance with the latest racing 911: the 2017 Porsche 911
RSR, purpose-built to bring Porsche back to dominance in this era’s most
competitive series, GT-class racing.
Each of the 10 turns at the Porsche On-road Circuit Leipzig
mirrors a world-famous venue: The Suzuka S bend at the start of the lap that
will test your ability to get on the throttle early, 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, the
bouncing-over-the-kerbs action for the Mobil 1 S bend (a carbon-copy of the
Nürburgring Grand Prix), the suck-in-your-breath and keep-the-throttle-open
challenge through the Curve di Lesmo, and the triple-turn Spa-Francorchamps Bus
Stop chicane―all will provide a serious test of both car and driver.
In addition to the nine additional cars and the all-new
track, the Porsche Legends Pack introduces 11 new esports liveries from the
following racing teams: VP-Gaming.de, ESPORTS+CARS, Oscaro esports by SDL, and Euronics
Also featured are five all-new Career events, including ‘Carrera
Showdown,’ ‘California Dream Event,’ ‘2.4 Hours of Nurburg,’ ‘Vintage Forest
Run,’ and ‘Icons On Show.’
The Project CARS 2 Porsche Legends Pack is available on Xbox
One, PlayStation 4, and PC for $9.99 (€9.99, £8.49) and is included with the
