    There's a Cayman series in the US where many of the cars have historic Porsche liveries.

    SaWeet! :)

    Way to go PD, GTS Crew!

    Gotta Love it! Based off trailers, Videos of Footage, and much more. The game is looking to shape out to be very good from my point of view!

    Excited :cheers:

    Nice to see the 919, probably the last gen of the P1s...

    So happy with the Cayman. It was my most wanted car after the Viper. If they nail the physics then hnggggggggggggggg.

    Hope they add an N-class Cayman in the future.

    And the new Dallara LMP1 built for SMP hit the track. Oreca about to announce an LMP1 too.

    Will be nice to compare those cars physics with those of Assetto Corsa. :)

    ...I am deeply hyped about the Cayman. Personally, I think it's the perfect, quintessential Porsche road car they have made in the last few years.

    I've heard AC has nice physics, but man those pictures look awful for this generation. If one thing GT nails, it's the cars actually look like they're on the road surface. Those pictures you can't tell where the tire's contact with the pavement is.

    Of all the hardcore sims Assetto Corsa feels the closest to GT Sport in terms of feel and the ability to lean on a car. In certain conditions it does look good, but with so many iconic cars, it is often disappointing to look back at replays. I play AC regularly online and always find it curious how the fictional Highlands track is by far the most popular. I guess it shows even amongst hardcore sim racers the driving enjoyment and uniqueness of a track is more appealing than realism.

    At least they actually have those real world tracks to begin with. Here's hoping on the DLC.

    Might be veering off-topic, but I'd rather 'GT Original' tracks to most of the boring F1 Tilke designed ones.

    Yup, that graphic detail you said about the tyres is on console... In PC version it's perfect.
    And while you are driving ingame you really feel the weight of the cars (GT Sport beta given me a more floaty sensation trough wheel and controler)

    One good thing about assetto is image clearness, didn't see it in any racing game till now.

    But i personally prise a simulator for his physics / FFB /sounds / track acurracy.

    In in this, i didn't find any sim better than assetto corsa for the moment on console...

    I really hope that GT Sport has improved his physics and FFB from what I've tried with the Beta version.
    Because it's fun,but really basic physics.

    Eye-candy it is for sure!
    No doubt that together with driveclub, GT Sport will be the best looking game.

    Lucky for us it isn't an either/or scenario when it comes to track creation.

    Comparing Assetto Corsa and Gran Turismo in terms of physics is pointless as AC is in a different league. It may not be the prettiest title but it has the most important aspect of a driving game, or sim in it's case, which is physics and FFB absolutely nailed. Nobody does Porsches like them either.

    I know. Makes me wonder what all the fuss is about since I've been driving them in AC for what now seems like ages. Still at least PD have got something right. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is my favourite and most driven Porsche in AC.

    Exactly. Same can be said about graphics and carporn though, only its the other way around.

    Physics in Assetto Corsa are trash. Much much worse than GT Sport, I will tell you that for a fact. Playing it on a controller is terrible, makes the original Project Cars look good. Project Cars 2 absolutely MAULS it in every aspect. Maybe it's different on a wheel, but I guess I'm too ignorant to see Assetto Corsa any other way.
