PORSCHE has a long and varied history in motorsport, spanning 75 years and hundreds of racing competitions in various disciplines.
Also, it has featured heavily in almost every racing game with licensed vehicles for the last 30 years and has left a pretty indelible mark on the gaming industry as a whole.
Porsche vehicles have appeared in several Forza games, including the current Forza Horizon 5 and the upcoming Forza Motorsport, due out October 10th on Xbox.
So it’s no surprise that Xbox and Porsche have teamed up to create a line of extremely limited edition Porsche-themed Xbox Series X consoles.
There are 6 designs for the consoles and only 75 special edition consoles will be made – once the promotion is over these will likely never come back.
The designs are based on liveries used by Porsche cars in one of the most iconic motorsport events of all time, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Alongside the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Indy 500, the endurance race is considered part of the Triple Crown, one of the most prestigious achievements in racing.
Each of the consoles features an iconic design and comes with a matching controller to complete the set.
The six designs are based on the following liveries:
- Salzburg (1970)
- “Hippie” (1970)
- “Pink Pig” (1971)
- Porsche Racing Edition (1978)
- 911 GT1 (1998)
- 75th Anniversary / Porsche 963 (2023)
Xbox and Porsche fans interested in snagging one of these rare and unique console bundles will likely have to compete against thousands of others, but thankfully, entering is pretty easy.
Simply visit the competition’s official website, enter your name, country and email address, tick the box to confirm that you are over the age of 18, and you’re good to go.
The competition is only open to residents of the UK, Germany and the US, so it’s a fairly selective group of people who can enter or even win.
But given the rarity of these consoles, many will be rushing in as soon as possible and grabbing a piece of Porsche and Xbox history.
