HmmNo, I mean the last NFS Heat, after the end of partnership, still have the most. The benefit - NFS is a very popular game, accessible and bright platform for advertisement. Porsche isn't locked, Need For Speed cars list is appealing to Porsche fans and future fans.
I see benefits only in Porsche didn't get involved in anything limiting them to certain things, such as GT. As for PD, they can use whatever they can buy from the brand, 100 percent not against that, since PC as simulator is gone, I'm all into GT 7.
As every LeMan race for a race car brand for the entire history of racing where Porsche is one of a key figure and gladly aim to stay the same even in virtual.
You are now pretty much saying what I was saying. However, having a full car list of Porsches, is not required in the PD/Porsche partnership.Maybe Porsche underestimated the power/potential of Polyphony Digital.
Just a reference, but how important GT to Porsche if...
I'm not sure, and actually never saw, played Forza and been into it, but I remember there was something with Forza and Porsche through EA licence, and their cars appeared in the game somehow. But this a not clear memory about what it was...
Not in the UK.Beemers are bikes, Bimmers are cars...
If Porsche have any common sense (and I've worked with them enough to know they have) they will continue to ensure that their products appear in as many titles, across as many platforms as they can.The obvious answer to that thread is "maybe not special but at least larger than in GT Sport " given by the trailer published in June with the featuring of 3 new Porsche cars to the franchise.
And I easily bet that Porsche is now more interrested to a partnership with Polyphony Digital for Gran Turismo, than appearing in the long lost and stupid Need for Speed franchise.
Nor do I suspect it is a hard rule in the US either. Before I joined this forum the only place I had heard them referred to as "Bimmers" was Car and Driver (and Automobile, which was usually Car and Driver defectors); and I just assumed at the time that was like the German spelling or something.Not in the UK.
Not sure. Those strakes/slats/vents, where the side are, looks a bit like a racing version of thisAnd the 917 Living Legend has a pretty prominent appearance in the trailer too. Any word on what the Porsche on the front cover is?
Wow. Double the sales. That's a tough battle.That would be Need for Speed, not Gran Turismo (yet).
80 million+ vs 150 million+
What are those Porsche concepts called? I'd assume the Porsche on the front cover of GT7 is their Vision GT, even though I'm pretty sure the Vision GT hasn't been shown off yet.Not sure. Those strakes/slats/vents, where the side are, looks a bit like a racing version of this

And Need For Speed gets mainline installments much more frequently than GT does. Gran Turismo has only ever gotten mainline installments twice for each console generation, not including the odd side games and spinoffs like the Concepts and Prologues, and Tourist Trophy.Yep, it's a big difference. NFS does have the advantage of age and being multi-platform.
They're from the Porsche Unseen concepts on Porsche's website.What are those Porsche concepts called? I'd assume the Porsche on the front cover of GT7 is their Vision GT, even though I'm pretty sure the Vision GT hasn't been shown off yet.

Polyphony should also get Magnus Walker to feature in the game and include his special "277" as well.Well, in the Porsche 718 thread, the next 718 will be all electric and based on the Mission R. Guess that cover car has a high possibility of being the 718 concept.
Add the classic Porsches and all the above mentioned possibilities of FormulaE, Porsche Cup esports and we may see a fair chunk of events devoted to Porsche. Wouldn’t hurt if it does happen. If it’s done well, of course.
