Quick Pic: Remember the Porsche 918 RSR Concept?

Y’all remember this shit? This dope ass thing was Porsche playing around with the idea of upgrading their 911 GT3R Hybrid race car that raced here and there by sticking the giant flywheel KERS system into the then brand spanking new 918 concept.

While it never raced, and seems to be long forgotten in the world of the 919 LMP1 car, I still have a major soft spot in my heart for this car, and wished it would have reached the race track at some point.

Flat-Sixes Down Under, Porsche Finally Comes To Forza Horizon 3

Patrick Hoffstetter April 20, 2017 Forza

With the EA exclusivity done and dead, Porsche and Microsoft have announced a new six year deal that will include the iconic German in Forza games going forward. This is great news for fans of Forza like myself, with this deal meaning that Porsche should be included on day one for all Forza games going forward.

Along with the car pack that dropped last week, which includes cars like the GT3RS, and the mighty GT4, all this month there will be opportunities for you to win Porsche’s free of charge through the limited time Forzathon events. It’s a great way to introduce Porsche back into the Horizon economy, and a great way to get old players back into the game. I can’t wait to see what this new partnership produces down the line, but for now I’m going to blast across the outback in my GT3 and see how far this thing can fly.

Like Forza Horizon before it it’s nice to see Microsoft providing some free games for us gear heads in the audience, especially those of us that like to challenge ourselves with a bit of a more hardcore sim than the Forza games.

Quick Pic: The New F1 Hotness

Patrick Hoffstetter February 23, 2017 Quick Pics

Well we have our first F1 car in the flesh, and it’s the new, anniversary flavored Sauber. With a lovely blue and gold livery celebrating their 25 years in the sport it’s one hell of a good looking race car. Features to look out for on these new cars are the new style front and rear wings, the lovely shark-fin, and of course those massive wheels and tires. Expect a full breakdown from me over in Formula Fun town once we see more cars break their cover.

Patrick Hoffstetter February 14, 2017 Quick Pics

Well we finally know what the long awaited Pagani Huayra roadster looks like, a project that feels as if it’s been in the wings forever. I think it looks stunning without the roof, and it looks every bit of it’s $2.5 million price tag.

What do you think? Has Horacio made a misstep, or is this another masterpiece from the minds over at Pagani? 764 twin-turbocharged V12 horsepowers are arguing against you if you dislike this car…

Project #MokotoNB Update: Daily Driving and Delivery.

miata mokoto project

When I first bought Mokoto last year I didn’t actually know what kind of Miata I was buying for $2300. Was it going to explode? Was it going to be the cheapest NB in the world? Or had I just found another one of the many anonymous Miata’s that trundle along the roads of this great country. But after crossing over 250,000 miles, I figured the old girl was up for a challenge. How about delivering food?
