    They already affect the car performance but they are not yet optimized correctly, still in a early state.

    It is now official !

    [​IMG]

    Project CARS will include four of Ruf’s icnonic German sports cars, bringing both a true classic and three current RUF models to the title.

    1987 RUF CTR “Yellowbird”
    Based on the Porsche 911 3.2, the 1987 CTR „Yellowbird“ is one of Ruf’s most iconic models.

    2012 RUF CTR 3
    20 years later, Ruf continued their famous CTR range with a new model as the third-generation CTR was unveiled in Bahrain in 2007.

    2012 RUF Rt 12R
    The Rt 12R is based on Porsche’s 997 platform as Ruf once again cut no corners to create a stunning driving machine.

    2012 RUF RGT-8
    Based on the brand new Porsche 991 model, the RGT-8 will be the first Porsche 911 body car to not be powered by the traditional flat six engine.

    The developers also announced that they recently received a contact from a big German manufacturer interested in having their cars in Project CARS, the developers havnt said much more than this but the speculation is starting to rise @ the official forums !

    More info @ the official website!

    Hey there guys got some huge updates on Project CARS:

    Project CARS funding had a huge boost recently and now they are almost €150,000 from reaching the goal of €3.75Million euros! No info has been released yet of what will happen when the value is reached but theres a big chance they will close the funding and also the access to the Pre-Alpha to those that havent registered yet!

    Recently it was announced that a major German car manufacturer offered Slightly Mad Studios access to their vehicles, no info has been disclosed about who this manufacturer is but since RUF and BMW are in, it leaves us with Audi, Opel and Mercedes!

    Also the 1980 Ford Capri Zakspeed Group 5 is almost ready to be ingame, according to the developers theres a high probability of having this beast ingame this week. Check the amazing looks of this car below, even in a pre-alpha state with missing textures and ambient occlusion it already looks amazing with such refined details like the fully modeled engine!

    Another member jumped into the trailer making bandwagon and made something pretty sweet . Check out "Drive it" by plm5!

    Anyone interested in joining or upgrading should do it in the next couple of hours, since the founding is very close to complete now.

    I love the Ford Capri, it's awesome!

    Release is in 2013, the announcement i made is for the access to the Alpha builds as a member. It's similar to the kickstarter projects, you pay to have access to the SMS forum to talk to the devs, play/test the builds see how the game evolves, etc.

    For prices of toolpacks see my first post.

    With normal rates it may take less than a week to complete the founding, but if a Senior Manager upgrades or buy a toolpack it's a matter of minutes. Remember that once the founding is complete no one can buy a toolpack or upgrade an existing one. Only 16000 euros are left to complete founding.

    Depends only if you want the full game when it comes out or to keep the 25€ discount you have already.
