I think if they can get the license for the RGT then they can get the license for the older 911. And it would be a wasted opportunity not to use it. I'd be more excited to drive the old 911 than the RGT personally. And I cant imagine they sound the same.

I agree: I didn't want to jump to conclusions too quickly with regards to having a new car in game though!

I don't think they'd dare use an old 911 sound for a modern RGT car with you waiting in the wings pal. If it's genuine that Codies are there then I think it's relatively safe to assume more Porsche content. Here's hoping.
Car list looks to be shaping up really well. Hopefully there's more 'leaks' to keep us busy

Has to be for older Porsche .The new one is used all over Spain and Europe so subject for the modern versions  sound recording shouldnt be that hard to seek out

Tuthill Porsche is literally 10 minutes down the road from Prodrive.  They could do old and new in the same day

Not to mention how many things of interest are potentially in Prodrive's facility. Can think of at least one RX car they may need sound for.

I REALLY hope that particular car makes the cut: would be a natural successor to the Focus RS RX.

Yes, just 10 mins away. Reality is, they don't have any cars to record that aren't customers cars. Which is why we went elsewhere. It's all so simple eh.

If there really is going to be a classic 911, with bespoke custom recorded sound set... well this may just be my ultimate driving sim.

Lots of cars have their own genuine recordings, having this 911 in game would mean a very cool, pretty rare Group B Porsche, loving it :)

Looks like the *very* car being recorded here.

Some footage of Hayden Paddon driving a BDA (it should be similar to the Escort in DR2) in New Zealand. Its a nice comparison to the latest Dirt show.

Looking at this, the handling seems remarkably similar to real life, and way beyond Dirt Rally or 4.

And I think Paddon actually won this event, beating the times of even 4wd cars. WRC drivers are crazy.

This is what springs to mind when thinking about NZ. Fast chambered roads with open lush hillsides.
The stage Codies opted for is more inside forest areas it seems?

Yeah it is, Curborough isn't that far from Banbury (where Prodrive are based).

If I told you to imagine a British rally you would think of welsh mud, and probably not the dark red dust of Somerset

Theres a a lot of variety in rallying

Prodrive confirm they are running the Porsche at Turweston for CM:

It will be interesting to see what the other New Zealand stage(s) in game are like. Would be cool to have some more open roads rather than more coastal roads. But what we’ve seen so far looks pretty fun!

My dad was talking about doing the silver fern rally at some point in the future. I doubt it will happen but it would be amazing to do! Also got the Roger Albert Clark rally next year to look forward to!

I think they are using the same approach as in DR, model one 20-30km stage that is divided up in 2 "long" stages in the game that is there after reversed and cut up to divide into more stages.

The fact that everything is the same stage/area isn't really ideal for diversity within the same location.


This is speculation on my part, but we haven't really seen/heard anything else so it's a fair assumption.

I hope they go for the Greece model instead. Where the two stages were quite different and didn't feel they were connected. Wales did the same to some extent.

Whilst true, they were geographically close in both cases. The Welsh stages were both sections of Hafren and the two Greek stages were in the same valley IIRC. Although both were excellent (hoping they make their way to DR2 eventually).

Would it be nice to have a super-long stage using the entire route, if it is broken into parts, as well as smaller bits?
That wasn't possible in DiRT Rally due to engine limitations IIRC.

I would hope for double unique stage miles. I mean DR was an experiment. This is a fully fledged release and they came under a bit of fire for limited stages. I can only imagine the would've listened to that
