Five incredible models of Porsche

Porsche’s addition to Gameloft’s acclaimed racer gives you the chance to race in some of the most incredible race-cars ever created. There are five of these in total, each sporting the manufacturer’s distinctive style.

959

One of these five is the Porsche 959. This car has quite the history holding, in its time, the title of fastest road car available with a top speed of 195 miles an hour. Next there is the 718 Boxster S. This is the most recent model coming to Asphalt, having only been released in 2016.

Keeping things modern, the Cayman GT4 is another recent model. Released in 2015, this racer tops out at 183 mph, a speed that allowed it to secure a lap time of 7:40 on the Nurburgring.

The update also includes my personal favorite model of car, the 911 - to be precise the 911 GT3 RS. This high performance car is designed for racing, a fact that is clear to see from its sleek classic design.

Finally there is the 918 Spyder with Weissach Package. Before you even take into account the fine tuning delivered by Weissach, the 918 Spyder is already one of the fastest cars ever made… add this package, which reduces the weight and increases aerodynamics, and you have a super-supercar.
