I almost wish it were a bit harder, but the 959 is one off my all-time favorite Porsches so I'm not complaining.

I really wish I jumped in to the older Forzathon events when I had the chance :(

Is there any way of them being recycled? Really want that 918 Spyder!

Coolest cars (including the Halo Warthog) were available as rewards in more than one Forzathon in the past, but since this is Porsche we can't know for sure.

Haven't played this game in a while but jumped back in to get the 918. I should really start playing this again, once Forza 7 drops, it's over.

What?

In FH2 the 918 had the optional Weissach Pack wheels, but they were replaced with the standard rims in FM6. Are the former ones back now?

Obtaining the 959 in the next one will be super easy:

The 3 stars on three drift events are not that easy if you are not that good at drifting like me :( there is a car and tune I found though that made even a useless drifter a drift KING! I am not on my X1 at the moment so I will get back with the car and tune.

Not sure, maybe, it is a little to early to know yet, if you are flush they are going for CR4m in the auction house.

Or you can use an HE Drift car, plus there are great drift tunes for all of those too.

I'm not too good at drifting either, but thanks to the above combo I've 3-starred all the drift zones.

The Weissach Package has different wheels (R magnesium wheels).



Normal wheels.



You will find quite similar Weissach wheels in the wheel store.

The best drift car is the 1974 Toyota Celica GT with Don Joewon Song tune 230+MPH C-Class, if you cannot get three stars on the Drift stages then there is something wrong.



I had managed to get about three 3 stars drift zones a few 2 star and most 1 stars, but over two nights about two hours each night I got 3 stars on each drift zones.

I don't really bother with x class, as S2 is the highest the leaderboards go and X is the plebs class of choice online.

The 918 at top of S2 still gets beat out by the regera or centenario.

Are you on PC or Xbox?

I'm on X1 and I have the diamond notification achievement thing pop up and I hear the plinky noise, once I have completed an event/mission and then when I go to my garage the car is there, I don't check straight away I just drive to the closest festival and check.

There is a member here that works for Forza, however I am not sure how they would respond to a PM though.

The cars not showing up seems to be popping up quite a lot though which is worrying.

The best thing I can suggest at the moment is go on the main Forza forums and post there about it and also contact Forza and Playground on Twitter.

I will have a look and see if I can find anything.

I found this on the main Forza site

Reminder tips to ensure Achievements and gifts are unlocked:

1) Go to your Settings menu for HUD and make sure Notifications are turned On. If you have 550 cars in your garage, auction/remove one or two.
2) If you are playing on PC: make sure you have not disabled Connected User Experiences and Telemetry setting, and turn off antivirus programs (see Known Issues thread in the Support forum)
3) Reboot before starting the challenges - hold the power button on your console until it shuts off. Also reboot any Win10 computers connected to the same router.
4) Use the dashboard Achievement tracker to see if you are progressing through # requirements, or use a Bucket List with skills requirement.
5) Reboot again if you see an Achievement but no gift.
6) Make sure you are reading the requirements correctly, and ask the community for tips on proper execution. (If a "Race" doesn't work in online, try solo mode)

When Challenges show 'Complete' but no reward you can try (in order of least impact to most):
1) Waiting... it may be a service delay
2) Try completing another event to trigger the event send/receipt
3) Terminate and Restart the game
4) Restart the Console

If you are asking for help or explanation for why you're not receiving Achievements/awards, include the following in your post:
-The date/time you attempted the challenge
-Which platform you're playing on
-Confirmation that you have tried all of the above troubleshooting
-If the Forzathon menu shows the challenge as complete or not
-% of completion for the challenge as shown in the console dashboard Achievements section
-If you've had trouble with Forzathon before or if this is a new issue.

From this thread and post.

This is the car I was talking about. It is in the car pack but this one is a free version with a Duracell livery. I'm pretty sure the stats are exactly the same.

Why thank you :) I played around with the metal flake paint to get the color I wanted. Then I drove around and found myself next to the Maroondah Reservoir at sunset, and just HAD to take those pics ^^

I also tried turning the 959 into a rally car by raising it, putting offroad tires on it and converting it to AWD but tooling around Blizzard Mountain with it just wasn't that great, so I just reverted to the default setup. I did upgrade the brakes and tune them a bit to lower braking distance, 'cause this car can't brake for shit.

also works with the racing spoiler, which for once isn't the default one glued on top

Only 700k? That's quite a bit of cr (for me atleast)

Also that's a great deal considering some of the prices they're going for.

Amazon in the USA has all three, and most likely gamestop too. Didn't see any options for codes on canadian amazon, though.

finally got around to playing horizon 3, i feel they should make a new spinoff series that focuses on arcade racing. i want tap brake to drift sort of car handling + nos. they have done all the hardwork anyway so it shouldnt even be too difficult to make this a reality.

the game for what it is (sim/arcade hybrid) is really good but just not my cup of tea. hope who ever is making the next nfs is taking notes.

absolutely love the art style, very clean and vibrant

When I came back to the game today, I'd been awarded the achievement and Porsche, so I guess that had effectively worked as a restart... or it just took the game a little while to register things!

I was sceptical, but this car/tune worked wonders. Came with a bonus "Underdog" achievement as well, which is one I wasn't even aware existed!

It does bother me how bad I am in drift zones with anything RWD, though. Ought to work on that.

Well, as a hopeless drifter in every game, I bought a 74 Celica with DJS tune this morning and 3-starred 14 of the drift zones. So, it works well enough for my needs.

Next, i'm going to run it on the last few speed zones I haven't been able to 3-star.

I am not very good at drifting at all, I have been playing racing games for the past thirty odd years, starting with Test Drive on my Atari ST and through to everything else and I have always gone for grip and aero in cornering over sliding around them so I am pretty useless when it comes to drifting, I am now getting a little better though.

DJS is a drifter and he seems to be able to set the cars up very well, I have ABS ON and Stability Control and Traction Control OFF, I find the drift-ability on this car to be pretty progressive, I have learnt not to drive too fast into the (corners) Drift Zones as I used to drive in at a million miles an hour and end up spinning off.

Glad it works for you, I tuned up a 1971 Skyline 2000GT-R to level A as a drift car and I managed to get about four of the Drift-Zones at three stars and the rest at two and mostly one star, I always looked at the leaderboards and noticed that many at the top were 1974 Toyota Celica GT, I didn't know what tune though and took a punt on the DJS tune as I know he's a drifter and I managed to get all of the Drift-Zones three stared over two nights, about an hour or so each night.

I did this #Forzathon Drift Challenge at the Drift-Zone just outside the Desert Festival, it is the one I managed to get the highest score at, somehow being in the top 2%!

The 959 is great, shame there is no proper rally (Paris/Dakar) tune though, it simply won't be available with the parts in the current upgrades though.

I went for a metallic brown though and tried to find wheels that matched the prototype as the regular ones look too small to me.



That was until I found a Paris / Dakar one!



I have also managed to sell my Supra HE it went at a start bid of CR-2m I would have liked more but it's the best I would get in the current market.
