    The trees, armco barriers next to the track and the car seems to be jumping over a crest as the suspension is raised for what is almost certainly a GT3-R. Could also be Watkins Glen but that doesn't have a jump on the straight after the esses.

    Regarding that Porsche pic, i see 4 exhaust pipes, or is it just me? If thats true, its some Turbo S. Which would make no sense. And also Turbo S does not have that tail fog light....Confused.

    Edit: Ok yes, i guess its the GT3 R after all.

    Well, Nordschleife holds a place in everyone's heart. It a special track. It's a good track too drive on a lonely boring day. Just clear the mind a bit and get in the flow. The length of the track also helps because you don't encounter the same corner every 1.30 minute. Anyway, that doesn't say that people dislike other tracks, tho. Nord is just a good alternative to pick a real car and go cruise in real life around the town or so.

    I am wondering were AMS 2 stands in about two years. It's the only sim that makes huge progress at the moment and it's good for the competition. If there's any. I think rFactor 2 is the direct competitor, but there's nearly none progress at S397. Kunos has ACC which is only GT3/Blancpain. AC is done. pCars 2 is done. F1-franchise is just the same every year. LFS has no marketing and 99% of the simmers don't know it exists. iRacing is a great competitive MP- game, but not a sim.

    I am hoping that S397 and Codemasters will get some kick under the arse by seeing all the quality stuff and progress Reiza makes with AMS 2. And finally start sorting it out and do something. Otherwise, and no complaints, we will be still racing AMS 2 in 2030. Where you can tailor the base game with the DLC you like, like a car or train-modelshop.

    Keep it up, Reiza!

    @Ivysaur ACC will get GT4 cars in summer. Should be cool too, also their 1.x Updates come regularly and improve the game a great deal every time. I just love all those sims for different aspects.

    Yes, I‘m a big Kunos fan too but unfortunately the VR in ACC is very bad...

    Maybe I‘m too old and I have bad eyes. Really can’t see anything, no trees...

    The "70s" version in AMS has bias-ply tires, versus the more modern tires on the '80's one (and now we have the current/modern tires on the OldStock already in AMS 2 (that was not in AMS). It's the ridiculously bad bias ply tires that makes the one I am asking about fun and worth having in AMS 2 :)

    The current plan for the weekly releases is - as far as I know - thursday or friday for Beta and friday or saturday for the regular EA version. So any possible unforeseen delays aside it should be no later than tomorrow (assuming the Beta has been/will be released today).

    I think that's in the hands of the market. If enough people get introduced to AMS 2 and are impressed, Reiza would have the revenue to get licences for the "regular" GT's that so many other games have. Why would they not do that, since we all know for better or worse, that's what the majority of today's sim racers want to drive. AMS could then become a known quantity instead of a niche product. Isn't that what we all want?

    Nice what the community can find out within these small details presented into one screenshot. So I guess Nordschleife it is? :p

    Not in everyone's heart, I don't like it and never race it in any Sim.

    When will the updated land on Steam? (Could be also Limerock Park, but 90% sure it's Nordschleife)
