As if the first volume of the so much awaited Porsche Pack DLC content wasn’t enough of a joy for the Assetto Corsa community, the new volume 2 puts more icons into the simulation from the racing side, while bringing some nice road car machinery.
The attraction of the pack released this Tuesday (22) are the prototype champions that crossed decades putting the Porsche name in the top step of the podium of the greatest sportscar events.
From the 80s we have the 962C in its long and short tail versions, a car with titles in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, IMSA, World Sportscar Championship and other regional championships, along with its fame around customer teams. The 911 GT1-98 is the 90s representative, one of the final iterations of the 911 GT1 machine, leaving the GT side a bit and looking more like a prototype, at a time where the LMGTP homologation specials were even faster than the LMP1 class.
The other prototype is way more recent, being it the 2015 version of the 919 Hybrid LMP1 model, which conquered 6 wins in 8 races of the 2015 FIA WEC season, including a very special 24 Hours of Le Mans win with Earl Bamber and Nick Tandy having the company of the Formula 1 driver Nico Hülkenberg. This hybrid machine has various modes of MGU-K deployment available to choose what’s best to take advantage of its energy recovery systems.
Also between the classics is the 718 Spyder RS from the 60s, which had its glories into endurance and hillclimb racing.
The road going part has its version of the Cayman GT4, which already had the GT4 Clubsport race car in the previous pack, with two versions of the 718 Boxster S, with manual and PDK transmitions, and the 911 GT3 RS, a street car that screams motorsport from it due to its list of elements brought from the race track experience to its body and other parts.
The free car of the current pack is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, the first SUV to come from the German manufacturer, having the Maserati Levante S as its class rival in the simulator. Everything came with the 1.10 version update adding new features and correcting some details, which can be seen into Assetto Corsa’s Steam page.
