It’s been only a month since Forza Horizon 2 added the Porsche Expansion Pack, which features 10 of Stuttgart’s best cars, including the 2003 Porsche Carrera GT, 1986-1989 Porsche 959, 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, and the 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder, and the racing game franchise is now offering two more vehicles from the German carmaker. For free!

It’s called the Porsche Bonus Pack, and it features two turbocharged models from completely different segments. One is the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the 611-horsepower beast that was Porsche’s most powerful production car at the time of its launch, while the other one is the 2015 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, one of the world’s quickest SUVs, with a 0-to-60 mph sprint of just over four seconds.

How do you get these awesome cars? All you have to do is look for the “Two Free Porsches!” story on the front page of the Forza Hub app, click that story to open it up and then click the button that will take you to the Porsche offer. From there, you’ll go to the Xbox Store where you can grab your pair of free Porsches. Make sure you hurry though, as the Porsche Bonus Pack is only available until Friday, July 24th.

Getting this free bundle will also unlock three achievements from the Porsche Expansion Pack: Porsche Owners Club, Horse Power, and This Is My Porsche.

Why it matters

Given Porsche has an exclusive partnership with Electronic Arts, it’s great to see than Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have managed to get two more cars Forza Horizon 2, taking the grand total to 12. Gamers finally get to enjoy a wide range of Porsche sports cars and supercars, as well as both the Macan and Cayenne crossovers in turbocharged forms. Hopefully, more Porsche updates will follow to include classic sports cars such as the original 911, the 1948-1965 Porsche 356, as well as the Panamera sedan, so gamers can have access to Porsche’s entire lineup of vehicles.

Here’s a closer look at the two Porsche models in this pack:

2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS
A 611-horsepower engine crossed with an elegant leather interior. At the time it was the most powerful production car ever built by Porsche, coupled with looks that would cause a sailor to blush. It was the top of the line version of Porsche’s latest 911 and features stunning looks along with twin turbos, an adjustable suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, and the kind of power that demands attention. No wonder so many reviewers have referred to Porsche’s latest masterpiece as “Beauty & the Beast”—it’s at once a stunning piece of automotive eye candy, and objectively one of the most terrifyingly powerful cars to be released in years. Yet, despite its grunt, the GT2 RS manages its power well. A few turns in the GT2 RS is all you need to be convinced: this is a smooth-driving and easy-to-handle car at low speeds and one that will peel your face off at the limit.

2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
When Porsche left LMP racing in 1999 to pursue development of an SUV, the racing community missed the German innovator and dominant multi-year champion. It begged the question, “What is Porsche doing building an SUV?” Well, not only has the Cayenne been a profitable venture since its release, the SUV market has never been the same. Running errands and picking the kids up at soccer in a 500 horsepower twin-turbo driven 4.8 liter makes more than a statement. The Cayenne Turbo’s top speed is above 170 mph and its 0-60 time is just over four seconds. Coupled with an all-wheel drive system that keeps all that power under control on any road condition, it is now OK to use “SUV” and “performance” in the same sentence. Compare its ability on the track with any other SUV and you will see the Cayenne is still in a class by itself.
