Default 928 Finally Comes to Forza

http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/entertainment/a10323108/forza-motorsport-7-car-list/

I'm so glad that Porsche got out of that miserable licensing deal with EA. The new Forza 7 coming out late this fall will have a full garage of P-Cars on launch, one of which is the 928 GTS.

Which is good news/bad news, because while their sound crew has been pretty good at modeling engine and exhaust sounds, they haven't quite nailed the V-8 yet.

My thought here probably does nothing other than expose my ignorance, but it makes you wonder why they couldn't just "sample" the real sounds and apply those recordings to the game....

Revealed in the latest Forza Horizon 3 patch. Appears to be a VIP reward car for mid August's VIP event.

Your welcome.

Sonnuva...I'm neither a VIP nor good enough at the game to win challenges. Can you typically buy reward cars in the marketplace?

Either that, or I'll be waiting for Forza 7.

There is an online auction system built into the game. You can bid on the car if anyone opts to sell their reward.

^^^ Looks good but why on Earth would they go with the 7" lights on a GTS.

Finally!

People have been yelling about it forever on the forums. I'd given up TBH.

Now the real question, will the games allow you to swap in an LS engine?

Yes. The LS3 is available in the game and is labeled as a "6.2L V8" engine conversion. Same 430 HP too.

Painted the GTS to look like my car with chrome wheels, just like how i bought it back in 2001.

I went an checked, I don't have the game installed on my computer.

Still displaced from Harvey so a 50GB+ download isn't happening.

Well, I didn't have the wherewithal to get it in Horizon, so I just waited for FM7.

I don't care for the rest of the game's mechanics, so my FM7 game plan may just be 928-related hot laps.
