We absolutely loved last years Forza Horizon 2. It was fast, fun, and beautiful. All it was missing was one notable car brand: Porsche. 

Well, tomorrow that’s going to change.

The Porsche Expansion Pack coming to Forza Horizon 2 will update the game with everyone’s favorite rear-engine roadster. Included will be classics like the 1987 959 to the absolutely screaming 918 Spyder. You can find a full list below.

  • 1970 Porsche 914/6

  • 1982 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3

  • 1987 Porsche 959

  • 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo

  • 2003 Porsche Carrera GT

  • 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (997)

  • 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S

  • 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder

  • 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS

  • 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo

This announcement caught many racing fans by surprise. For years the Porsche license has been exclusive to EA, makers of the Need for Speed games. And as great fun as the Need for Speed games are, they didn’t satisfy more hardcore simulation racing fans. According to the press release, “The Forza Horizon 2 Porsche Expansion is the result of an agreement between Porsche, EA, and Xbox” and “this agreement also includes adding Porsche models to Forza Motorsport 6.”

With such quality racing games out on the market, like the recent Project CARS, it’s a great time to be a racing fan.

The Porsche Expansion pack is set to release on June 9 for $9.99.
