    The 996 has finally come out of hiding.

    It's Jordan, he probably know something we don't :D

    It's coming this month anyway, and most of the time, the update comes the last week of the month

    So the next content update's focus is somewhat on late 90's and early 2000's.

    That's absolutely awesome news, and the 997 version as well!

    The decision to get a wheel for my PS4 and not my XBO seems entirely justified right now.

    Looking forward to the update. Fuji Speedway is always enjoyable and the cars should be fun. Assuming we get a silhouette teaser, I really hope to see a few race cars. Please bring an LMP2!

    Weirdly, the 996 is my favorite 911 GT3, although the 996 doesn't appeal to me as much as others. But this particular version is a very important one in Porsche history. Although I also highly welcome the 997 since a friend owned one (he just sold it though).

    Because Kaz said it in this tweet:



    upload_2018-9-23_0-4-1.png

    Roughly translated from japanese to norwegian so to english: Some of this month update will be released first.

    And it is just 1 week left of this month, so that means we will have Fuji Speedway and a batch of new cars sometime next week :).

    Would this be considered new to the franchise or a remastered vehicle?

    All 5 of these cars are brand new for GT Sport and aren't remastered premiums.

    No, Logitech make the G29 into a G920 for Xbox for that reason.

    Despite being called a 2008, the image in the other thread shows it's a 997.2 GT3.

    Technically, this means the Ruf RGT is back I guess.

    That's odd. I thought it said 2006, which would made it a 997.1. But the image I saw pretty clearly shows the 997.2.

    Seeing this, I was surprised that Kaz still owns his 996 and it remains stock condition.
    And when GTS had old cars, I thought this car may be coming...

    The dream now came true!!

    Holy cow. Just when I'd given up on more Porsches, we get one of my favrite ones, the 996 GT3! And finally the NSX as well! I also, unlike some, absolutely love Fuji! Thank you PD!

    I feel the same. And I do love it despite the egg fried lights just like the rest of the 996 range. I think part of it is because is the first of the GT3's, which has now gone on to even a more mythical status than the legendary turbo models, and now seen as most purest drivers car in the 911 range. Also in white with the red side graphics and red rims it is very reminiscent of the beloved 1973 911 carrera rs. And finally, the very distinctive rear wing that looks like it is barely hanging on.

    And I know I maybe nitpicking, but I wish it was an RS model and that we get a Ferrari 360 challenge stradale to go up against it in GT Sport. I could imitate one of my favorite reviews on Top gear:
