    Such a cliche thing to say.

    No. There is so much more to Porsche than the 911. 924, 928, 944, 959, 968, Carrera GT. 550 Spider, 718, 787, 904, 906, 908, 910, 917, 935, 936, 956, 962, RS Spider, I could go on.

    If you want to call all those souped up Beetles go ahead, but that is plain ignorance.

    -sigh- >.> No need to ask this question. Kaz already said he intends for Porsche to feature in Gran Turismo when their contract with EA expires, BUT he doesn't know when it will expire. If you want to know that, you'll have to ask EA.

    Are there any legal experts here who would know how to wrestle the Porsche license from EA's hands?

    I want Porsche, but not for the (annoyingly easy to spin) 911. I want their Can-Am and LMP cars!!!!

    Gotta be joking...but I'll play.

    It's not an over powered Beetle...you should be tarred and feathered..lol

    Platform RR is the same, but even since the "901" it's been a extremely and vastly different platform all around for those that don't know. Just because the same guy designed them and has their name attributed would be like saying a Shelby Cobra is the same as a Shelby GT500 or 350.

    You would be interested to know the differences and heritage if you knew the lineage. ;)

    Its not an annoying easy spin car as some game physics portray the Ruf without some extensive tuning and what it received a bad name for in the 70's-80's turbo's. Yes some dirt on the rear tires will certainly put this into a spin that makes a blackhole envious.

    I dont see why PD doesnt take the same approach as turn 10 did. thay will get back what thay paied EA + tuns of profit$$. Even if thay charghed 30$ for a DLC pack I bet every single person who ownes GT6 would buy it'. What car lover doesn't love Porsche?.:bowdown:

    We have no idea how that deal went down though. It was certainly a lot more complex than just dumping a bag of money on EAs desk and EA saying here you go, Porsches for you. Given they haven't been able to get them again for F5 suggests it was far from that simple.

    Maybe because this time around with F5, the bag of money thay wanted was WAYYYYYYYYY!! to big $000,000,000 and turn 10 said hell no!.

    Maybe, maybe not. My point was we don't know the specifics of the deal and how easy it would be for PD to just pay up and do the same. It's unlikely to be that simple, even if they wanted to.

    i hear (and sorry if anyone brought this up) that the NFS franchise and Forza have special rights to PORSCHE. But Gran Turismo being like the BIGGEST car game in the world, you would expect a PORSCHE.

    But it would be nice for some added confirmation.

    I love Porsche, and it makes me love NFS TBH and seriously if they (PD) finally get their license, I would be very happy.

    Well, i reported this topic to the moderators but apparently they don't think the same way as me, that if this question ends up being one of the ones that gets asked it'll be a waste of a question since it has already been answered.

    Never mind Porsche.

    At this point, I'd be extremely happy just to have one or two new Rufs in the game.

    No just new RUFs, but Race Modded RUFs too, to make up for the lack of some great racing Porsches.

    i agree. RUF's are great! If PD could have a licence with them, i really wouldnt mind not having Porsches.

    It'll take about 5 seconds to answer, then he can move on to the next one. Not wasteful enough to justify reporting it, but I still lament the high number of votes for this question. Oh well... >.>

    Why and how is it wasteful to get a confirmation? It doesn't hurt anyone, and it would be nice to see.

    I thought Kaz already said that they have a good relationship with Porsche and wish to include it after their contract with EA expires.

    That's all the confirmation I want.
