    For the upcoming challenges I'm most worried about performing ebisu style for the Porsche Cayenne reward. I've been practicing jumps leading into drifts on and off during the week, but I have only triggered the skill twice out of all my deliberate and often seemingly flawless attempts. What's the secret?

    Here's my obligatory photo of my Forzathon prize car, the 2016 Porsche Cayman GTS.

    The Cayman GTS challenge actually led me to discover a hidden gem in the car list: The TVR Sagaris. How have I never noticed this thing in my garage?!

    I'm guessing you have to spend 200,000 in one shot, and not cumulative over the weekend?

    I bought 2 cars that added up to over 200,000.

    There's place in Byron Bay that allows you to perform Ebisu Style skills very easily.

    Here's a video of it:


    I, too, had trouble attaining this skill. This helps.

    Got three dusted in one go. The XP culminating in 8 wheelspins was handy. Just super pleased to have the 996 again.

    Used my Mercedes-Benz 300 tuned to A800 for three of the challenges at once. Here are the fruits of my labor:

    2004 Porsche 911 GT3 (996)

    And my emergency backup 2016 Porsche 918

    Are they actually selling? That's pretty ridiculous considering that this Forzathon should be long enough for everyone to at least have somewhat of a chance to get one. You would think the prices would be low since it's not something like a one day event.

    I have to credit Forzathon with getting me interested in doing races and completing the game again. I had barely raced since the opening week.

    Easy Fozathon!! Got both cars in one try, making a custom event with Classic racers. Man... That 918... I'm not into modern hypercars, but what a sound from that V8! And it looks as good as the Carrera GT. But the star from this Forzathon has got to be this baby:

    This is what a Porsche (and a real sports car) is about. Naturally Aspirated, rear-wheel drive, manual transmission, no less than 300hp, no more than 400hp. Just perfect!. And this is probably the best sounding Boxer-6 in the game so far!

    Oh, and forgive the pic. Not sure how to take those gorgeous high res pics.

    EDIT: I wonder when we'll get the 4-banger entry-level Porsche. Gotta have variety.

    I have to agree about the GT3. In Forza 6 it felt the most representative of the RR driving style, with understeer on the menu if you don't set it up properly and so in Horizon with the shallower feel it still feels the most authentic 911 experience relative to the others.

    Guys, it says "complete a championship in a classic racer" to win the 911 GT3 (the new one from FM7). So what's a classic racer then? 60s...50s, pre-50s?

    Ended up using my Elise for the Cayman GTS challenge, and of course 6 out of the 11 drivatars where driving Porsche 944's! The rest in the same Elise I was driving.

    Was quite easy to get the GT3 as I just did a quick 3 race championship in my Lola T70 where I had a few close battles with a Ferrari 330 P4. Would've won all 3 races but a yellow 250 TR overtook me right at the finish line of race 2. Still won the championship and got both the 996 and the 918. Was loads of fun racing the Lola in the rainforest in the wet.

    There are moments like these that just make you fall in love with Horizon 3. After trying out the dreadful NFS 2015 reboot, I appreciate the physics even more in H3. Still, I hope they will somebody consider copying/pasting FM physics into the game. That would be off the chain.

    Pardon the off-topic there. :)

    Win a Championship to win the Porsche 944 Turbo

    Sometimes, you just have to open your eyes and read. It was right there in the OP.

    If you go to your garage and press the Y button, you can filter the cars by several categories, including class, or category. You can just click on "classic racer" and it will show you only the classic racers in your garage. Click on "classic racers" and "A class" and it will show you if you have any classic racers that are A class already. The filter button is very handy.

    The challenge to win three races in A class is broken. I got the XP reward despite not winning even one out of the three races I did. Other than that, it feels good to keep expanding the Porsche collection. Cayenne, 944 and RSR to go. I might skip the latter because I decided not to buy the motorsports car pack due to lack of interest, but I'm excited to see whether the 928 GTS arrives in the July car pack.
