    Also Michael Jackson, John McCain, and John Locke.

    EA will not have a choice in the matter I'm confident. Porsche negotiated that deal in the late 90's - early 2000's before they realized the capacity of video games to be a marketing tool.

    Regarding the HP/PP: have overhauled the engine and only have 446HP and 517PP.
    Only one model is available in Dealership. Why is mine so low?

    I believe the only people who know are the executives in both Porsche and EA.

    Interestingly, the M3/M4 twins have been on a dyno recently. BMW says they have 425 HP, but the dyno says over 460HP at the wheels. Counting for driveline loss, this car is supposed to have ~500 HP.

    Gotta love underrated power figures. :tup:

    I think Porsche could organize a fleet of current, past, and classic road cars and race cars and bring them to EA, show them who's badge is on the car, and just drive away.

    There are quite a few Porsches that have been posted in the suggestions section, these will never happen unless the stupid and ridiculous "exclusive rights" between EA and Porsche ends.

    I firmly believe that Porsche is making a huge mistake on the marketing side. Just think, more of their cars in games that aren't NFS = more exposure and more of the brand in peoples consoles. Even Porsche themselves have even tried to be allowed to have their cars in FM4, but EA blocked them because they are a bunch of assholes.

    Porsche should tell EA to :censored: off.

    But enough ranting about how EA is hurting the gaming industry, auto industry, Porsche aficionados, and the players...

    With how fast he's become over the last few months, I think a limiter is necessary. :p

    Both of my M4 cars are 517pp. I bought one before realizing you get them for free. Then realized I like almost every other BMW better than the M4.
