After the exclusive EA and Porsche licensing contract ended back in 2015, we've been seeing games including Forza Motorsport, Assetto Corsa and Gran Turismo Sport embrace the Stuttgart brand. It's no surprise, then, that developer Slightly Mad Studios will bring Porsche to Project Cars 2 when it arrives later this year.

Patrick Long's unique experience of Porsche's new race cars and his personal collection of classics allows him to give developers broad knowledge regarding what it takes to accurately recreate these iconic Porsches in game.

"Critical feedback and what is needed to improve a car on the road is something I do day in and day out," said Long, "Doing it from a simulation aspect with AJ and the Project Cars guys, that's unique for me.

In addition to Porsche, Project Cars 2  will also be adding a brand-new IndyCar element to their game, featuring several Indy tracks including the Indianapolis as well as race cars ranging from the modern IndyCar Dallara DW12 to Parnelli Jone's red, white, and blue Ol' Calhoun racer.
