First images of the Porsche Pack 2023 DLC revealed by RaceRoom | traction

As we reported last month, a special Porsche-themed DLC pack will be available in the RaceRoom Racing Experience Store very soon.

And today, KW Studios confirmed that the Porsche 911 GT3 R (992), Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and Porsche 944 Cup will be coming to free-to-play simulation in July as part of the “Porsche Pack 2023”.

Not only are the Three Wonders of Weissach arriving soon, we also got a first look at how they will look like in-game.

Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

If you’ve played a major racing sim in the last year or so, then you’ve probably driven the latest generation of Porsche’s 911 GT3 Cup car. As sure-footed as it is ubiquitous, it offers an enjoyable flat-six soundtrack alongside its overwhelming mechanical grip.

The best thing about this car is the lack of traction control or ABS, making it a real test of the driver’s skill – imagine trying to drive a GT3-horsepowered car with no driver aids? Crazy.

Especially when you consider that amateur drivers regularly take part in national Porsche Carrera Cup championships around the world at the wheel of these 500+ hp beasts.

Already featured in Assetto Corsa Competizione and iRacing, the 911 GT3 R (992) is Porsche’s GT3 weapon on the international stage, competing in the GT World Challenge Europe series, the Intercontinental GT Challenge and the DTM.

Retaining the car’s classic rear engine and rear wheel drive layout, the 992 is an aggressive looking version of the 911 road car and boasts a record 14 entries for this weekend’s 24 Hours of Spa, proving its popularity with the competition.

Porsche 944 Turbo Cup

We travel back to 1987 to see the final Porsche in RaceRoom’s Porsche Pack: the Porsche 944 Turbo Cup.

Unusually for a Porsche, the 944 is front-engined, but it still managed to retain the sporty handling expected of the Stuttgart marque, leading to its 1980 Le Mans 24 Hours debut (albeit in easy altered form).

The 944 was raced around the world then – and continues to be in select historic series today – and was a reliable platform for amateur enthusiasts to race, with predictable enough handling and just over 200hp.

A small difference to today’s 911 GT3 Cup…
