    Mid-week release for Porsche Pack 3, so time might be scarce for trying it out. However little time you have though, it worth's giving the new toys a spin. Porsche Pack Volume 3 follows the first two DLC packs dedicated to the Porsche brand, introducing a selection of seven different vehicles. The pack places an emphasis on modern-day Porsche racing cars, including the entire 991 GT3 racing line and the latest 2016 Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid, while also featuring two of the German brand’s most iconic racing cars, the 908 Lang-Heck and 917 K.

    Volume 3 also brings players one of the most coveted modern road cars of the modern-day Porsche line-up, the Porsche 911 R, completing a perfect mix between road cars as well as modern and historic racing models.

    The Porsche 911 RSR 2017 model, which was expected to be available in this pack, will not be included, as this is a completely new model for Porsche. It will be replaced with the Porsche 911 Turbo S as this is a top requested car from the Assetto Corsa community. Players can expect to see the Porsche 911 RSR 2017 model arrive early next year as part of a free update.

    So what's the final lineup ? More than 20 Porsche cars, in all the flavors you might desire - they are there:

    PORSCHE PACK VOLUME 1

    PORSCHE PACK VOLUME 2

    ..and finally:
    PORSCHE PACK VOLUME 3

    Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017
    6.jpg

    Driveline layout
    Rear-wheel drive
    Displacement 3,996 cm3
    Power 485 hp (357 kW)
    Transmission Porsche six-speed sequential dog-type transmission
    Tank 100-liter fuel cell (FT3 safety fuel cell) and fuel cut-off safety valve in accordance with FIA regulations

    The Porsche 911 is a sports car icon. Each one was developed for superlative performance. Just like the youngest member of the family: the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. A pure-bred race car. Developed in the untouched countryside of the Stuttgart region. In a district of Weissach. In Flacht, to be precise: the home of the very own Motorsport Manufaktur. A place where the art of engineering and heart and soul are one and the same thing. It is here that the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup receives its finishing touches. For use on the most demanding race tracks in the world. Infused with the combined expertise accumulated from over 30,000 racing victories and more than 60 years of experience in motorsports. For ever greater heights of performance. The same is true of its latest incarnation: based on the seventh generation Porsche 911. It's even faster, even more durable, even more efficient and even safer. Born in Flacht.

    Porsche's racing history confers obligation. Not only to strive for the next victory, but also to keep on improving. Like with the 911 GT3 Cup. Thanks to its ongoing development, it has become one of the most competitive race cars in customer racing today. And it has proven to be one of the most successful for some time: with more than 3,500 examples made, it has been the car of choice for the Porsche One-Make-Series since 1990 and is the most produced and most sold racing car in the world – not least because of its outstanding versatility.

    The new 911 GT3 Cup is due to make its first outings in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and in North America. Over the course of next season, it will participate in further One-Make-Series around the globe as well as in various GT and endurance races.
    Why? Because the 911 GT3 Cup has what it takes. Especially the newest generation. Thanks to an updated appearance with new front and rear aprons, four-point LED headlights and taillights in contemporary design, it unites certain qualities more than ever before: the character of the Porsche 911 sports car icon and new technologies from motorsport. source

    Porsche 911 GT3 R 2016
    9.jpg

    Engine layout
    Water cooled six-cylinder Boxer engine (rear mounted)
    Power 368 kW (500 hp)
    Power transmission Porsche six-speed constant-mesh gearbox (sequential)
    Brake system Six-piston aluminum-monobloc racing brake caliper at front, Four-piston aluminum-monobloc racing brake caliper at rear
    Steering McPherson strut at front, Multilink independent suspension at rear, adjustable motorsport dampers, anti-roll bar
    Safety Safety Welded-in roll cage, FT3 safety fuel tank, fire extinguishing system

    Powering the new 911 GT3 R is a cutting-edge four-litre flat-six unit which is largely identical to the high-performance production engine of the road-legal 911 GT3 RS. Direct petrol injection, which operates at pressures up to 200 bar, as well as variable valve timing technology ensure a particularly efficient use of fuel. Moreover, the normally-aspirated engine offers significantly better driveability and a broader usable rev range. Power from the rear engine is transferred to the 310 mm rear wheels via a Porsche sequential six-speed constant-mesh gearbox. As in the GT road-going models of the 911, the driver changes gears via shift paddles conveniently positioned on the steering wheel.

    Adopted from its production sibling, the 911 GT3 R features the distinctive double-bubble roof, and the wheelbase which had been lengthened by 8.3 centimetres compared to the previous generation. This ensures a more balanced weight distribution and more predictable handling particularly in fast corners corners in comparison to the previous GT3 R. By applying systematic lightweight solutions for the body, add-on parts, and suspension, the engineers significantly optimised the centre of gravity position of the GT3 R compared to the predecessor model. The lightweight body design of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car featuring intelligent aluminium-steel composite construction has proven to be the ideal basis for the race car. The roof, front cover and fairing, wheel arches, doors, side and tail sections as well as the rear cover are made of particularly light carbon-fibre composite material (CFRP). All windows – and for the first time even the windscreen – consist of polycarbonate.

    The aerodynamics of the 911 GT3 R also follows the example of the road car. The distinctive wheel arch air vents on the front fairings increase downforce at the front axle. Measuring two metres in width by 40-centimetres in depth, the rear wing lends aerodynamic balance. From its 911 RSR big brother, the GT3 R has adopted the concept of the centrally-positioned radiator. By eliminating the side radiators, the position of the centre of gravity was improved, the radiator is better protected against collision damage, and the venting of hot air through louvers in the front cover was enhanced.

    This is the car for Porsche's return to top-class motor sports at the FIA World Endurance Championship. The 919 Hybrid.

    Unlike a 911 GT, at first glance it’s not your typical Porsche. That’s because of the strict FIA WEC regulations on vehicle design. As a result, the latest racing car has the futuristic look of a Le Mans Prototype.

    The FIA World Endurance Championship is where motor sports history is written. This is where those at the highest level of motor sports pit themselves against each other on renowned race tracks around the globe. The race series, which replaced the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup in 2012, is considered one of the toughest in the world, and brings together sports prototypes and Gran Turismos on eight long-distance circuits. After a 16-year absence, Porsche is since 2014 back in the racing car line-up for LMP1, the highest class, with the 919 Hybrid.

    Porsche's choice of combustion engine was born out of an efficiency-optimised approach: a highly compact, turbocharged four-cylinder 2-litre engine with direct fuel injection. The combustion engine is supported by two energy recuperation systems. Years of experience in designing Sports Cars helped to reduce the weight of individual components even further. The sports prototype is made mainly of carbon. In addition, the engine made of high-strength aluminium and the use of magnesium and various titanium alloys also helped to achieve the ideal system weight.

    Porsche 908 LH
    3.jpg
    Despite winning the 1000km Nürburgring, the 908 was anything but convincing in 1968. The older and smaller 2200 cc 907 had started the season with dominating wins and later delivered better results than Porsche's first serious attempt in the prototype category. Meanwhile, the older 4.7-litre Ford GT40s Group 5 Sports Cars were winning races on the faster tracks, with the Ford P68 being a failure, Ferrari remaining absent, and the Alfa Romeo 33 still utilizing a 2000cc enigine. With the minimum production requirement for the 5000cc Group 5 Sports Car category reduced from 50 units to 25 for 1969, Porsche decided to go one step further and build the required 25 examples of a new 12-cylinder car, the Porsche 917. This risky investment should take about a year, though, and the 908 was supposed to deliver results in the meantime.

    The 1968 24 Hours of Le Mans were postponed from June to the end of September due to political unrest in France, setting the stage for a showdown between the 908s and the GT40s. The Porsche 908 LH Long Tails were the fastest in qualifying and the early stages of the race, but it showed that Porsche had not taken advantage of the additional time to improve the 908. Troubles with the alternator caused delays and even disqualifications as the new Porsche team leaders had misinterpreted the repair rules. Once again, a V8-powered Ford won, and a 907 Long Tail came in second in front of the sole surviving standard 908. In addition, Ford won the 1968 International Championship for Makes.

    Porsche 917 K
    12.jpg
    The Porsche 917 is a race car that gave Porsche its first overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Powered by the Type 912 flat-12 engine of 4.5, 4.9, or 5 litres, the 917/30 Can Am variant was capable of a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, and a test track top speed of up to 240 mph (390 km/h). The highest official speed ever clocked for a 917 at Le Mans is 362 km/h or 224.4 mph.

    There are at least eleven variants of the 917. The original version had a removable long tail/medium tail with active rear wing flaps, but had considerable handling problems at high speed because of significant rear lift. The handling problems were investigated at a joint test at the Österreichring by the factory engineers and their new race team partners John Wyer Engineering and after exhaustive experimentation by both groups, a shorter, more upswept tail was found to give the car more aerodynamic stability at speed. The changes were quickly adopted into a new version of the 917, called the Kurzheck, or short-tail, with the new version being called the 917K. The 917K, and the special Le Mans long-tail version (called the 917 Langheck, or 917L), dominated the 1970 and 1971 World Sportscar Championships. In 1971, a variant of the 917K appeared with a less upswept tail and vertical fins, and featured the concave rear deck that had proved so effective on the 1970 version of the 917L . The fins kept the clean downforce inducing air on the top of the tail and allowed the angle of the deck to be reduced, reducing the drag in direct proportion. The result was a more attractive looking car that maintained down force for less drag and higher top speed. By this time the original 4.5-litre engine, which had produced around 520 bhp in 1969, had been enlarged through 4.9-litres (600 bhp) to 5-litres and produced a maximum of 630 bhp. The 917K models were generally used for the shorter road courses such as Sebring, Brands Hatch, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps. The big prize for Porsche however, was Le Mans. For the French circuit's long, high speed straights, the factory developed special long tail bodywork that was designed for minimum drag and thus highest maximum speed. On the car's debut in 1969, these long-tail (917L) models proved to be nearly uncontrollable as there was so little down force. In fact, they generated aerodynamic lift at the highest speeds. For 1970, an improved version was raced by the factory (although the John Wyer team still preferred the security of the 917K) and for 1971, after very significant development in the wind tunnel, the definitive 917L was raced by both factory and JW. These cars were so stable that the drivers could take their hands off the steering wheel at speeds which reached 246 mph. In 1971 Jo Siffert raced an open-top 917PA Spyder (normally aspirated) in the 1971 CanAm series.[6] There is also the "Pink Pig" aerodynamic research version (917/20), and the turbocharged 917/10 and 917/30 CanAm Spyders. Porsche 917s also raced in the European Interseries in various configurations. In the 1973 Can-Am series, the turbocharged version Porsche 917/30 developed 1,100 bhp (820 kW).

    The 917 is one of the most iconic sports racing cars of all time, largely for its high speeds and high power outputs, and was made into a movie star by Steve McQueen in his 1971 film Le Mans.

    2009 marked the 40th anniversary of the 917, and Porsche held a special celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (3–5 July).

    Porsche 911 R
    16.jpg

    Horsepower
    500 hp at 8250 rpm
    0 - 60 mph 3.7 sec
    Top Track Speed 200 mph

    Revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show on March 1, the 911 R shares most of its underpinnings with the GT3 RS, but removes the roll cage, rear wing, and associated bodywork for a weight savings of 50 kg. It also offers additional options for a lighter flywheel and removal of the air conditioning and audio systems.

    Only 991 vehicles were produced. It has an overall weight of 1,370 kg (3,020 lb), a high-revving 4.0 L six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from the 991 GT3 RS, and a six-speed manual transmission, while an air conditioning system and an audio system are removable options to save weight. The car goes from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 323 km/h (201 mph) due to a lower drag coefficient compared to the GT3 RS.

    Porsche 911 Turbo S
    11.jpg

    Power
    427 kW (580 hp) at 6,750
    Acceleration from 0 - 100 km/h (0 - 62 mph) 2.9 secs with Sport Chrono
    Top speed 330 km/h

    Introduced in May 2013, the 991 Turbo has a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre engine generating 520 PS (382 kW; 513 bhp) and 620 N·m (457 lb·ft) of torque. The S version has 560 PS (412 kW; 552 bhp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of torque, but the torque is pushed to 750 N·m (553 lb·ft) with overboost. Both vehicles have all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual clutch sequential transmission. The Turbo S can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds as claimed by Porsche but has achieved 2.6 seconds by many car magazine tests. New technologies featuring adaptive aerodynamics and rear wheel steer are new on these cars.

    But what better than a video to showcase the new additions:
