Rennsport may not have been fully released yet, but there are a number of cars we know will be in the game.
Rennsport is set to challenge the sim racing titans of Assetto Corsa, iRacing, and rFactor 2 this year. But which cars have been confirmed so far? 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
- Porsche 963 LMDh/GTP
- Porsche 911 (992) Cup
As you can see from the list, most of Rennsport’s cars are GT3 racers, positioning the game as a rival to Assetto Corsa Competizione.
These cars will be familiar to anyone who has played Assetto Corsa Competizione as it's the official GT World Challenge game.
Beta 1.60 adds new car class
The latest update for Rennsport saw a couple of new circuits, updates to the game's physics model and a new car class, TCR. Players were also able to start races via a rolling start.
Porsche Mission R Concept
One exception to the GT3 rule 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.
Rennsport Car List Expansion
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.”
Rennsport closed beta update adds new car
As part of the first major update to the Rennsport closed beta, the Praga R1 was been added to Rennsport. With its faultless design and breakneck speed, the R1 joins an already exhilarating car list.
On top of the R1, the closed beta update includes a new track, new animations, and a new track limit detection system designed to enhance the realistic racing experience. You can see the full list of changes here.
As for the release date, Rennsport is targeting a 2024 release window. However, you can try out the new sim racer for yourself before then if you sign up for a beta key and get chosen by the developers.
Competition Company have been running a number of closed beta sessions, and it's only a matter of time before an open beta launches. You can still sign up for a closed beta via the Rennsport website.
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!
