Here’s a closer look at the two Porsche models in this pack:
2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS
A 611-horsepower engine crossed with an elegant leather interior. At the time it was the most powerful production car ever built by Porsche, coupled with looks that would cause a sailor to blush. It was the top of the line version of Porsche’s latest 911 and features stunning looks along with twin turbos, an adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and the kind of power that demands attention. No wonder so many reviewers have referred to Porsche’s latest masterpiece as “Beauty & the Beast”—it’s at once a stunning piece of automotive eye candy, and objectively one of the most terrifyingly powerful cars to be released in years. Yet, despite its grunt, the GT2 RS manages its power well. A few turns in the GT2 RS is all you need to be convinced: this is a smooth-driving and easy-to-handle car at low speeds and one that will peel your face off at the limit.
2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
When Porsche left LMP racing in 1999 to pursue development of an SUV, the racing community missed the German innovator and dominant multi-year champion. It begged the question, “what is Porsche doing building an SUV?” Well, not only has the Cayenne been a profitable venture since its release, the SUV market has never been the same. Running errands and picking the kids up at soccer in a 500 horsepower twin-turbo driven 4.8 liter makes more than a statement. The Cayenne Turbo’s top speed is above 170 mph and its 0-60 time is just over four seconds. Coupled with an all-wheel drive system that keeps all that power under control on any road condition, it is now OK to use “SUV” and “performance” in the same sentence. Compare its ability on the track with any other SUV and you will see the Cayenne is still in a class by itself.
If these cars aren’t enough, and you’re looking to take advantage of all the cool stuff Porsches can do in Forza Horizon 2, check out full Porsche Expansion, which features 10 stunning Porsche cars such as modern classics like the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, and includes access to exclusive Bucket List challenges, additional Xbox Live Porsche Expansion achievements and more.
