Hey Rob there is a small typo in the RT 12 section:


Powered by a twinturbo-charged 3.8 liter flat six engine, the RT 12 boasts 685hp of power, making it a sensible decision that the Rt 21 is also available with all-wheel drive.

By the way, aren't we supposed to get the 730 HP R version of that car?

These cars are a real pull, well done Lucy, Andy or whoever for securing the licences to these. One way to get around ea hogging the licences :a04:

Really, really looking forward to driving these on the track. Will follow the development of these cars with great interest.

As said in the other thread. Really Great News! A really important step, because - who don't love RUF's / (Porsches)...? :cool:

Don't know if these sentence is written in the correct posture... Sounds a little weird...:a23:

I'm not fully informed if there is a RUF GT3 Team.. could u fiddle a (real or fictive) GT3 Ruf together to race with the Z4?

Sean Powless

pls start modeling the yellowbird first, with colour option black XD

(what I dislike the mustard colour....)

of course I'm sure SMS is busy with other cars for some time, maybe like the ginettas, which I think are also mysteriously absent from the subforums? and all those lotuses...lotii...lotus'....

perhaps due to some of mister Garton's tea getting into the system....

Eric Zehnder
01-11-2012, 19:51
Looks like we can now put together some really interesting multiclass races. One of these could be the GT3 alongside the BMW Z4. One could go alongside the other Group race cars from Ford and BMW. The newest ones would probably be up there with the Pagani Huayra, etc.

This does bring up a good question which is how do you make these cars play nice with each other? Most racing games just make sure they're on equal ground through arcade-style tuning options and upgrades. If the performance is meant to be realistic it shouldn't change between classes.

I guess you could just categorize the different cars into classes so you know when the Ruf Yellowbird is in stock form it's regular, in GT3 form, in Group A form, etc.

Great licence announcement and will do pCARS the world of good I am sure. I'm guessing RUF don't have any full racing versions there won't be any in pCARS which is a tad bittersweet, however I am sure the fact that Porsche are in the game at all is a small feat in itself, so cudos for that.

Hey Ben, the RGT-8 is pretty darn close to GT3 specs and the V8 would work for GT3 class, so dont give up any hope of a racing derivative just yet :)

Hi,

I´m missing something, or there are no post´s about the great cars soon to appear in Project Cars ?

SMS posted in the main page that we will have Porsche´s in this case by RUF, in my opinion better then the original ones.

3 cars, just the right kind, I can´t wait to try them:

1987 RUF CTR “Yellowbird” based in the porsche 911 Turbo, from the same year, i think.

2012 RUF CTR 3 based in the very good cayman.

2012 RUF Rt 12R

2012 RUF RGT-8


So, I would like very much to read all your comments, about this cars :)

RUF Yellowbird - coming to Project CARS - drool

I am pleased to see classics coming to the game more than modern cars although this yellowbird may also a little bit overpowered for me.

If this game has to be a racing game with many overpowered (for my control method that his) racing cars then I 'll stick with the 80's - 90's hardware , not above.

Its RUF (/roov/ with a trilled [r]) not "rough"

By the way I think PCARS visual appearance (game cover etc.) should pivoting around the Yellow Bird.

It's something we can't do without permission from Ruf for sure. But we shouldn't be afraid to ask.

Asking is one thing, them giving it away for free is another :) i would prefer them to spend some of that money on Alfa's

Benjamin Fischer
21-05-2013, 09:57
Maybe to trade it for an other Ruf would be an option...just speculating here ofc. I'm sure SMS has picked up this idea at some point already and we will see if they want (and are able) to do it.

FLX81
21-05-2013, 10:56
I really, really hope so to. A RGT GT3 would be the most desirable car in the game for a huge amount of people (all Porsche fans, to be exact) for a relatively low amount of work. And since the RRRE Ruf GT3 is the RT12R, we would have something unique there, too. :)

Unless Ruf are asking for a frivolous amount of money, I see no reason not to do it - imho it would be borderline negligent not to, since it would also give us a replica of a real life cup series on top of GT3/GT/E variety. I would love to get some dev comment on this, but my hopes aint too high... Unless somebody gives Andy a beer or two (for which it is a bit early, admittedly).
