The day has finally arrived. Porsche cars have returned to the Forza Motorsport series on XBox 360 with the availability today of the Porsche Expansion Pack for Forza Motorsport 4. Pony up 1600 Microsoft Points ($19.99 in real world money) and you'll get 30 new cars, 20 new events, 10 new achievements and a Porsche-only Rivals Mode. Developer Turn 10 says that seven of the cars (scroll down for a full list) are all-new to the Forza series, which brings the game's fourth installment – including all of the vehicles released via downloadable content – to a grand total of 625 cars.

We know what you're thinking. Twenty bones is a lot to drop on a single chunk of downloadable content when you've already paid $60 for the game itself and another $30 for the Season Pass, the latter of which has already filled your virtual garage with dozens and dozens of extra cars to drive. That's all true, and no one would blame you for passing on this Porsche DLC, especially considering that Porsches were included with the price of the game in Forza 1, 2 and 3.

Consider this: 959, 962, 911 Sport Classic, GT2 RS ... Those are just four of the thirty cars from Stuttgart that you'll be passing up the opportunity to drive (digitally) if you say no to the Porsche Expansion Pack. So now that you're armed with all of the info, you can make the decision that's right for you while we go download our decision.

Scroll down to check out the official gameplay trailer that shows all 30 vehicles in action, as well as the full list of all 30 vehicles included in the Porsche Expansion Pack.

      This looks insanely awesome, but call me crazy, I've got a real problem with paying for something that should have been included from day 1. I understand that EA was being a dick, and held the rights, but Turn 10 should have been a good sport and given us most of these cars for free.
      • 3 Years Ago
      where is the new 911? disappointed to not see it.. knowing T10, it will probably be the halo car of an upcoming pack to justify a purchase. i'll pass for now.. i don't play enough to justify another $20. with LCE + season pass , i've got $110 in it... i'll wait another year or 18 months until all of the remaining packs are 50% off.

      Once again the GT5 player frowns upon reading this......

      I bought the LCE plus the season pass. I gladly paid for this as well. It's not my ideal Porsche expansion pack. Only one car from the company's first twenty years? Seriously? But it's Porsche, so I got it. The game is incomplete without it.
      • 3 Years Ago
      98% of this pack is carryover from FM3. I WAS stoked to hear Porsche was coming back but after sifting through the cars, no thanks.
      • 3 Years Ago
      This will come as heresy to some fans, but for me there is more value in additional tracks rather than additional cars. Obviously all of the cars handle in a unique manner, but not so much as to make a track a completely new experience. Add tracks, give the cars away for free.
        Red Giant
        • 3 Years Ago
        Yes! I would definitely pay for more urban tracks
        • 3 Years Ago
        Not heresy at all...people have been asking for more tracks since FM2. What ever happened to classic tracks from the 1st game, like Blue Mountain, Alpine Ring, Tokyo, Rio, New York (full), Pacific Shipyards, etc? Release a pack like that...and I'd gladly pay $20 for it.

      So $20 for a bunch of cars that were left out of their recent title due to a legality/contract issue that we would've otherwise had included in the game disc as with previous versions!? More corporate greed BS. Sorry, i've moved on to other games that don't attempt to wallet-rape me every chance they get.

      BS, 20 bucks for 30 cars??? didn't they give you 500 or so when you bought the game for 60 bucks? That works out to 12 cents a car. So this bundle should cost $3.60. I'd even consider paying $4.00 bucks for it. But 20, no thank you greedy bastards!

      When is the "Platinum Edition" coming out? I refuse to pay for DLC when I've already purchased a game, so I've been patiently waiting for the final edition that includes all this DLC and playing Forza 3 in the mean time...
        • 3 Years Ago
        This is what I'm doing too, I still have several events from FM3 to complete anyway.
        • 3 Years Ago
        My thoughts exactly. I'll hold out for the "Ultimate Edition", or whatever they wind up calling it. If I can't get the game plus all DLC packs for $40 or so total, I'll keep right on playing Forza 3 and enjoying my Porsches that I don't have to pay $20 extra for.

      Why the F do I have to pay more when I already bought the damn game?
      • 3 Years Ago
      what was name of that other game?
      • 3 Years Ago
      well seeing as they just copy+pasted all the Porsches straight from Forza 3 without bothering to add any new ones, I'll just play that game if I wanna drive a 911 rather than dropping $20 on an 'expansion pack'
