In addition, the Series 13 update includes fixes and improvements to various aspects of the game, including rebalanced League rankings in Team Adventure, some car fixes, and more. For these details, check out the full release notes on the Forza Support site.

Would make quite interesting ingredient for one more Halo Showcase Remix.

That one buddy on the left who you just see the top of his head and the corner of his chair, every time I look at the picture, for a second I think he's a muppet with a really big orange nose.

This appears to be the 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6 (which was added to FM7 in April last year) in a Horizon 4 setting. A candidate for the Classic Racers division.

Probably numerous reasons. The first being race car. Who’s to say they aren’t bringing in the 928 at a later date?

I’d prefer this over the 928. But just as you would prefer the 928, it’s out of our control. Lol.

I hope the ranked overhaul will be good.
And I hope they put 3 showcase remix events into next month so we can finish the star card.

Because the 928 is a dead end.

And the 906 Carrera isn't? We already have a derivative of the 928 in game anyways (968). I don't mind either of them being part of the game, but your answer is just a bit dismissive. Half of the cars in game older than 2000 could be called a dead end.

The 968 is a derivative of the 924/944, not the 928

My interpretation of #TorbenTuesday:

0+1 on the monitor and the last names of Italian designers = Italdesign Zerouno

2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS
2018 Gunther Werks 400R (Porsche 993)
1970 Porsche 917lh
1966 Porsche 906
1951 Porsche 356 SL Gmünd Coupé

1110 in binary = 14 in decimal, it's written inside a track, it means updates to the Route Creator are coming not in the Series 13 Update, but in the next

graphs = rebalancing of Ranked Adventure so that the average Joe can make it to League 10 for the Star Card

dots = still a mystery
