If you're a car enthusiast, Xbox One owner, and you haven't picked up Forza Motorsport 6 yet — you will definitely have to now.

Porsche is back once again in Forza Motorsport, nearly a half a year after the release of its sixth iteration, and the wait has been well worth it. Launched on March 2nd, the Porsche Expansion Pack comes packed with 21 cars that encompass nearly 60 years of the legendary manufacturer. Of those cars, you'll find the new 919 Hybrid that claimed overall victory at last year's Le Mans, a 718 RS 60, 959, GT1 racecar, 962c, 550A Spyder, the Flying Lizard 911 RSR, Penske RS Spyder, the incredible list goes on.

All cars are highly detailed and most allow you take an even closer look through Forza's "Forzavista" — a virtual walk through of the car that lets you open up the trunk and see the power that lies beneath.

As an extra bonus the expansion also carries a whole new campaign — the Porsche Anthology. Through this extra series, you are guided through the history of the cars from the Speedster and culminating in the 919 with races featuring appropriate competition and venues. Along the way you hear juicy tidbits about each car from iconic Porsche racing drivers such as Hurley Haywood, Derek Bell, and Patrick Long.

In addition, a new track is also gifted — Virginia International Raceway. VIR adds to the incredible North American circuit line up already featured in the game, and is a complete joy to drive with its old-school layout and flowing corners and elevation changes (even at night and in the rain).

Most importantly, you can test the three biggest hypercars out there — the LaFerrari, 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 and race them head-to-head.

The Xbox-exclusive package will set you back $20, but is an absolute necessity for any gearhead. If you don't have an Xbox One, or even have a PS4 and are eagerly waiting for Gran Turismo's next installment, do yourself a favor and pick up the system, this game, and this expansion — you'll likely never look back.
