Rennsport is set to challenge the sim racing titans of Assetto Corsa, iRacing, and rFactor 2 this year. But which cars have been confirmed
Here’s everything we know about the Rennsport car list.
Rennsport Car List
These are the cars confirmed for Rennsport so far:
- Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo
- BMW M4 GT3
- Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo
- Porsche 911 GT3 R (991.2)
- Porsche 911 GT3 R (992)
- Porsche Mission R
As you can see from the list, most of Rennsport’s cars are GT3 racers, positioning the game as an Assetto Corsa Competizione rival.
These cars will be familiar to anyone who has played Assetto Corsa Competizione as it's the official GT World Challenge game.
One exception is the electric Porsche Mission R concept. Previewing Porsche’s vision of an electric customer race car, the Porsche Mission R’s power is sourced from two electric motors generated over 800 kWh (over 1,000 hp) combined.
That’s enough juice to enable the Mission R to hit 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. It was also designed for virtual racing as the cockpit doubles as a racing rig for esports.
Developer Competition Company has confirmed the Porsche Mission R will be drivable in the Rennsport closed beta, although the electric concept already made its racing game debut in iRacing last year.
Other car types are expected to come to Rennsport. In a Q&A with RaceDepartment, Competition Company revealed plans to add "hundreds of cars” to Rennsport in “three or four years.”
As for the release date, Rennsport is targeting a December 2023 release window. However, you can try out the new sim racer for yourself before then.
Competition Company is inviting players to sign up for a closed beta starting in June. If you aren’t lucky enough to get an invite, an open beta will follow later this year allowing all players to access Rennsport.
With Unreal Engine 5 graphics, a new esports platform, and modding support, there's exciting potential for Rennsport to shake up sim racing.
