Forza fans, if you love Porsche, we’ve got fantastic news for you: Starting today, we are bringing two additional Porsche models to Forza Horizon 2 as part of the just-released Forza Horizon 2 Porsche Bonus Pack. This pack features the 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS and the 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Whether you have already purchased the Forza Horizon 2 Porsche Expansion or you haven’t yet experienced the glory of the famous German marque in the game, these two awesome Porsche models will be made available to ALL Xbox One Forza Horizon 2 players at zero additional cost.


If you want to get these two Porsche models, the only way to do so is via the Forza Hub app on Xbox One, which you can download for free. Once you’ve got it installed and loaded up on your Xbox, look for the “Two Free Porsches!” story on the front page of Forza Hub – click that story to open it up and then click the button in the story that will take you to the Porsche offer. From there, you’ll head to the Xbox Store where you can grab your pair of free Porsches and get a taste for what makes Porsche such an amazing addition to Forza Horizon 2.

The Porsche Bonus Pack will ONLY be available until Friday, July 24; afterwards it will be gone for good. So do yourself a favor and download Forza Hub and grab your free Porsches before it’s too late!


If two Porsche models aren’t enough, and you’re looking to take advantage of all the cool stuff Porsches can do in Forza Horizon 2, you can always take the plunge purchase the whole Porsche Expansion, which features 10 stunning Porsche cars, including modern classics like the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, and includes access to exclusive Bucket List challenges, additional Xbox Live Porsche Expansion achievements, and more!


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.
