    I don't mind playing NFS. I have NFS games in my bedroom and I play them regularly.

    Actually, they have a good relationship with Porsche but they can't put Porsches yet because their rights are currently owned by EA. As soon their contract with EA changes or if it expires then a Porsche will appear in GT.

    I agree. We had waited long enough since 911 GT3 got deleted from GT3 A-Spec :(

    I think that's already a straight answer about Porsche : They want to, but they can't because of licensing problem

    No this isn't a straight answer. When does this license expire? I

    EA holds the sole rights to use Porsche in its games.

    I think the question should be:

    Also if he can note, I'm willing to pay as much as $20 for a worthy pack that includes a good life span of cars...at least 5 cars:

    1. 2014 911 - 991 GT3 (Road Car) and RSR (race car FIA spec)
    2. 2012 911 - 997 GT3 RS (Road Car) and RSR (race car FIA spec)
    3. 962 and/or 956 (preferably Rothmans that was piloted by Stefan Bellof)
    4. 935 K's
    5. And why not something like a 944 or 928...or even a Cayenne?
    6. 919Hybrid LMP (for obvious reasons)
    This would make for some variety and I'm sure it would sell like hot cakes! List shows 5 cars ...but including race cars and road cars for the 911, 7 total. I choose these cars since it would accentuate existing cars and expand classes that are already limited in variety (namely FIA GT3). The 962 and 956's would also go well with the Group C or LMP cars.

    Edited to add this one as #6:

    Well seeing how "then" represents time, maybe at one time they were larger (that would be sarcasm)
    "Than" is used to compare two things...

    But anyways.. Look at it like this.. Porsche knows how to advertise. EA knows how to make games fun. Why not advertise in a fun game, rather than put it in here where it's all lap counts (looking from the eyes of Porsche that is.. Not my opinion)

    There is always two sides to the story.. The view from the people who ask-us- and the view from the people who give-Porsche- so it isn't so easy...

    people should stop buying any EA game that has a single Porsche there, in that way EA games will easily give up the licensing of Porsche :)

    Yeah just like people should petition PD by not playing online for any GT game...


    Tell me how that one works out..

    The Porsche brand will help the franchise grow, because of their rich history at the Le Mans & GT Championship series. Everyone will have to keep expressing their support for the Porsche brand, even if Electronic Arts does hold on to the rights for a little longer

    They're not even using them properly, plus I sense that the reason why they have had the licence for almost 20 years, because of how they fear the competition

    it is a great shame that the last game to have the Porsche 356 is NFS Porsche unleashed. I want to drive the legend in another game so badly.

    I seriously hope this question isn't one of the ones that gets asked, as he's probably sick to death of saying we want Porsche too, but can't *YET*, because of Electronic Arts.

    Maybe this topic should be locked.

    Maybe all of the sub-consciously obvious ones should be, as it will end up as a waste of time only frustrating Kaz.

    Rather than this, why not ask more questions regarding to how they work on such issues, now when will issues be fixed..

    It's like take your kid to work day. He (kid) doesn't care where you sit at work, but what you're doing at work..

    That isn't something a company will be willing to publicly divulge.

    At least I want to see is the Porsche 919 Hybrid (LMP1) in GT, doubt that EA has exclusive rights to it anyway:

    I would also add, "Is there anything we can do to convince Porsche to change their present stance?". Although... I doubt he would answer a question that condones instigation.

    Porsche can't do anything either, they are in a legally binding contract and if they break it EA will very likely create a lawsuit and a big legal battle.

    I think i read somewhere that Porsche themselves are keen for GT, but their hands are tied too.

    They have exclusive rights to the Porsche brand, which is every car they ever produced with a Porsche name/badge.

    I thought vehicle requests were to be kept in the specific forum? And besides, why waste a question to Kaz when he has already answered it...

    So, unlike how Quattro GmbH produce the S/RS/customer racing/prototype racing, DMG Mori (or whatever it is) couldn't be used as a scapegoat for it?

    I don't see how you guys still think this is a possibility after 16 years.

    I guess you gotta really love Porsche, to me they're just overpowered beetles.
