Editor’s Note (March 2, 2023): We’ve updated this blog to remove mentions of some cars that will not be available in the base Forza Motorsport game. We’ll share more in the future when those vehicles will be coming to Forza Motorsport and how they can be obtained. We apologize for any confusion.

Forza Motorsport - Developer_Direct, presented by Xbox & Bethesda - YouTube

Forza Motorsport’s Driving Experience is a Generational Leap in Immersion


If anyone is wondering what changed on the list above - six #NewToForza cars went missing:

  • 2018 Audi #44 R8 LMS GT3
  • 2021 Cadillac #31 Whelen Racing DPi-V.R
  • 2019 Ginetta #6 Team LNT Ginetta G60-LT-P1
  • 2017 Oreca #38 Jackie Chan DC Racing Oreca 07
  • 1983 Porsche #11 John Fitzpatrick Racing 956
  • 2019 Porsche #70 Porsche Motorsport 935

Very disappointing :frowning:


:cry: They advertised four of these vehicles and two in depth during Forza Monthly. Hopefully they’re free when they do come to the game.

Yes, I hope it’s only a matter of delaying this content for two to three updates after launch and not locking it in DLC…

Looks like Licensing strikes again

Bizarre (imo) to announce the cars only to pull them before the release with a note that they may be available later.

It happens though, some agreements can break at the last second (See: FIAT Group)


Well this is awkward :thinking:

Could be licensing, could be a competitor snapping up an exclusive deal, could be a strategic business decision, who knows.


That list is far too random to be exclusivity deals with competing games. I doubt it’s licensing, either, because there’d be a lot more missing.

I really hoped they wouldn’t, but that reads to me like they’re setting up a Festival Playlist for Motorsport, and those are going to be the first offerings.


It is likely licensing:

  1. They’re all Racecars

  2. Racecars usually have something roadcars don’t… Sponsors

No one but Porsche sponsors the 2019 935. It was a one-off concept homage that was built on a GT2RS chassis and never saw competition. Also, sponsorship decals have never stopped a car from being included before. But, hey, let’s keep right on believing that it’s anything but Horizon’s garbage bleeding into Motorsport, just as feared.

Wrong, if you’d actually bothered to Google the car, you’d see that quite a few brands sponsored that 935 (including Martini, who wouldn’t be on the car for obvious reasons), also, there are 77 935’s

And you know that because?

NASCAR and Formula 1 games have all included cars that don’t have sponsors for a variety of reasons, most related to tobacco and alcohol advertising laws; in those cases, they simply alter the livery on the car to remain as close to the original as possible while removing the offending sponsors. No one is going to cut a car just because one of the sponsors doesn’t agree, particularly in a game where those liveries can be altered. They’ll send the car out in bare carbon-fiber, or in show car/test car liveries first.

Keep trying.

Hot take: The “removed” cars are pre-order/deluxe/VIP pack items but said SKUs haven’t been announced yet.


I’ve thought that, and that’s not much better of a scenario, particularly for a game that desperately needs to show that it’s grown beyond the nonsense.


Not the DPI and the Audi :sob:
They better remplace these cars by cool ones

Pretty sure they’re all going to be paid DLC. Licensing isn’t always the answer, contray to what people usually think. I mean, more often than not, it is, but I doubt its the case here.

Lancia appearing in the one of the Horizon streams prior to launch was a bit different as probably only one percent of the people who watched the initial Horizon 5 reveal ever saw the stream Lancia appeared in. While for these seemingly removed cars from Motorsport 8, well, they were shown to at least a million people. Probably more. Can’t backtrack as easily with viewership numbers that high, though they are trying.

Those cars probally will be put in a update or will be that usual day 1 DLC Pack

here is the queote from the website with BOLD in the most important parts

They will be coming in the game but probally as day 1 DLC or as a free update car (GOD, I HOPE ISNT LIKE FH5 PLAYLIST I HATE THE PLAYLIST PLEASE DONT DO IT)

It wouldn’t be so awful if they were more transparent, but of course we get that classic turn 10 radio silence that they’ve become infamous for.
