    Another Porsche filled month of forzathon! I'm willing to bet that the barn find is the Porsche 356 speedster. That should finish the expansion roster that was in FM6 as well.

    The expansion for FM6 had cars not yet announced for FH3 and a few that most likely won't come to the game, such as the 962.

    I'm personally hoping that the 911 GT1 will be a Forzathon prize in the future since we already have cars similar to it like the Mercedes CLK-GTR, McLaren F1 GT, and the Nissan R390.

    The 911 GT1 in FM6 is the race car though. The F1 GTR, CLK-GTR and R390 in FH3 are road cars in the retro supercar division. They would need the 911 GT1 Straßenversion for a real competitor.

    You've got a point. It would most likely be put in Extreme Track Toys along with the other race cars if it were to come. But to get around that, we could always remove the 911 GT1's livery and make a custom Blueprint where only those four cars are allowed.

    If we get the 911 GT1, it would be most likely be the Street version, probably put into the same category as the other GT1 homologations.

    Just a note to the author: the Huracan HE is not a new addition to the game and the stats are readily available. I believe it was part of the original batch of wheelspin cars at launch. In any case, it's been in my garage for a long time.

    As much as yall dig the 911s coming to Forza (not a fan of the series personally), Forza is missing a key machine from the German automaker.

    I'd be thrilled to realise that PD and GT7 would honor it's patrons with the 928GT. A car that was more powerful and quicker than the 911s of the day. A 964, 944 or 914 would just infuriate me.

    Oh man, May is going to be so much fun with the Hot Wheels DLC and now this? I just ordered ME:A which should arrive on Thursday, suddenly I expect my progress to go very....slowly now. It's going to be hard finding time to split between both games.

    928GT. If Forza continues to ignore it, maybe GT7 will pick it up.

    Sorry. Please delete this post.

    Welp, sorry to break to you but you'll be waiting a hell a lot long time for GT7, as it won't get announced anytime "soon". And even though you didn't mention it but I'll gonna say it anyway, it looks like PD isn't adding any classic cars into GTS as the oldest car is the car list so far is the Lotus Evora (2009), so even then there's a silm chance of seeing it (or any older cars for that matter) in that game.

    Btw, since T10 will be partnering up with Porsche for the next 6 years (including their cars at day one for each iteration of the next coming Forza games), as mentioned here, who knows what kind of Porsches they will be adding, but this time both T10 and PG shouldn't be restricted from adding the Porsche what they, and we, want unlike back then.

    Exciting times is just ahead for Forza Motorsport 7 once it gets announced at E3 2017! :D

    Yeah, I know it'll be a long while before 7 is released. But hey... it gives me time to get the children out to university and save the funds to afford online gaming as it is today.

    I don't do abreviated GT or any Forza. But again, I'm certain yall will certainly enjoy the 928. It was truly a remarkable piece of engineering that was sweating C4 Corvette owners with little effort.

    So I noticed they updated the Forzathon section of the menus in-game for this weekend, it looks like you just have to win a race in a Porsche to get the barnfind. The "challenges" are getting so easy it's almost ridiculous.

    Since all I'm concerned about are the cars and not the challenges, that's fine with me.

    Auction House is the only way to get the 918 now AFAIK, unless it becomes another Forzathon prize in the future

    There's no winning, really: make the challenges too hard (like that damned Rolls challenge in FM6 last year) and people will complain. Make 'em too easy, people will complain.

    I agree that they're almost so easy you can do them accidentally these days, but I don't think Forzathon is really about challenging players. It's sort of like GT6's log-in bonus: a carrot to dangle in front of people to encourage long-term activity. There were lots of folks that logged in simply to keep their bonus at max... and I'm seeing more than a few people making sure they log into FH3 on weekends to nab rare cars. Hell, I'm one of them! :lol:

    Of course! I have a special place in my heart when it comes to classic and retro cars, so a car like the 928 I would gladly love to see get added to any racing game, that and the fact that it's one of my childhood cars as well. :)

    Oh I'm not complaining, not really anyway... the more cars the merrier, and the less work required to get them the better, especially since the Forzathon Porsches are basically rehashed material from FM6/FH2. Making the challenges difficult doesn't make sense since I can just boot up those two games if I want to play around with them. I'm half expecting at this rate the Carrera GT to be something like, "boot the game up to receive the 2003 Porsche Carrera GT" :lol:

    Guilty as charged as well. :D

    Wow, no classic cars in GTS? What horrible idea! So classic car enthusiasts get the cold shoulder in the next outing, good to know.

    We're not sure yet. The final car list hasn't been announced by PD as of yet, but it would be a shame if there weren't any though.
