And if yow wonder which cars are included in the pack, here is a detailed review:
1970 Porsche 914/6
1970 Porsche 914/6 was created in collaboration with Volkswagen more than 45 years ago. It came as a substitution of the VW Karman Ghia. Powered by a 2.0-liter flat-six engine that drives the rear wheels, the car generated more horsepower than the largest VW flat-four. In addition, the 914/6 GT also competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970, ending first in its class and sixth overall.
1982 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3
1982 Porsche 911 Turbo is known as 930 in the United States. It features the emblematic for the company and specifically for the 911 design with flared wheel arches and whale-tail. This one is powered by an air cooled flat-six engine, which produces 296 horsepower (218 kW), and is mated with a four- or five-speed transmission.
1987 Porsche 959
Some called 1987 Porsche 959 is a supercar. Back in the days it was a big "something" because all of other cars in this era were far behind. The car was exclusively built in only 230 units and there are some really interesting facts here. Each of the 959s cost more than $500,000USD to build, but was actually sold for far less than the half of this amount: $225,000 USD.
In addition, the 959 produced 450 horsepower (331 kW), which was a record at that time. The horses were generated by a sequential twin-turbo engine. 959's even won its class in the Paris-Dakar Rally.
1989 Porsche 944 Turbo
1989 Porsche 944 Turbo has the best performance figures in the 944 lineup. It is driven by a four-cylinder 8-valve 2.5-liter engine, delivering 250 hp (184 kW). It also features larger brakes, larger sway bars, a limited-slip differential and ABS. This model can also do a quarter mile in about 14 seconds, and the 0-60 mph sprint in 5.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 162 mph.
2003 Porsche Carrera GT
Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003, the Porsche Carrera GT is the first concept car since the last 959 rolled off the line in 1988. Here Porsche has utilized lightweight materials like carbon-fiber for the chassis, magnesium for the wheels and titanium for the pushrods.
As a result the Carrera GT had almost zero rotational inertia. The 5.7-liter V10 powering it, produces 605 horsepower (445 kW) and can hit 124 miles per hour in less than 10 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph.
2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0
This is a car most of us have witnessed being born three years ago. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 has this amazing performance assisted by the 4.0 displacement of the flat-six engine. It also features enhanced air-flow, titanium connecting rods, and a single-mass flywheel.
2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S
Porsche 911 Turbo S is something Porsche should be proud of. Its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six unit produces 560 horsepower (412 kW). Even better, the Turbo S is equipped with all-wheel-drive and liquid-cooled Haldex hydraulic device, which enable tighter and more stable turns at slow or high speed.
2014 Porsche 918 Spyder
918 Spyder is considered a hypercar. The reason for this is its power estimated at more than 900 horses (662 kW). What's interesting here is that it comes from the 4.6-liter naturally-aspirated flat crank V8 and its hybrid electrical system.
In addition, the car has been built almost entirely from carbon fiber. The 918 already set a production car lap record at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. What is more, it shattered the production car record at the Nürburgring by 14 seconds. All in all, it is a representation of world' newest highest performing vehicles.
2015 Porsche Macan Turbo
Although it is a SUV, the Porsche Macan Turbo is one of the best-selling models in company's line-up. It is beautiful and powerful at the same time, and no one did expect to see such amazing SUV in the beginning. This is why it deserves a place in the Porsche's Forza Horizon 2 Expansion Pack.
2015 Porsche Cayman GTS
At last, the 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS which was recently announced is also featured in the expansion pack. It features a mid-engine design, no back seats, less weight and improved balance. And it is the perfect car to be featured for Xbox one competing. Who will chose it?
