Its not really a problem with AC car naming as they are named as the real cars are, car manufacturers name cars in such a weird way that people that dont know the actual cars wont understand what they really are.

Here is the Porsche naming code just to confuse you some more confusions.  ;D
https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/porsche-model-name-type-number-12087.html

Original GT2 model was made for GT2 race spec but then road and trackday cars were made based off the race car also named GT2 using the other codes after that to signify road, trackday and race cars.

Quote
GTS (e.g. Cayman GTS)

GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport and is originally a homologation class from motor racing. The 904 Carrera GTS received this epithet for the first time in 1963. In 1991, the 928 GTS revived the tradition. The GTS suffix is currently used to designate the especially sporty and exclusive models of a Porsche model series.

RS (e.g. 911 Carrera RS 2.7, model year 1972)

The RS (stands for RennSport[=racing sport]) and is a street-legal model that has been derived from the motor racing version. The designation is, however, also used for particularly sporty models, e.g. the 911 RS America.

RSR (e.g. 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 model year 1973)

The RennSport Rennwagen (RSR) [literally: racing sport racing car] is a purely competition version and is not street legal.

S (e.g. 928 S, model year 1979; Macan S)

S for “Super” or “Sport”: a version with a more powerful engine. Today the S consistently stands for “Sport” and, in addition to the extra-sporty engine, additionally includes enhancements to the equipment compared with the basic model.

Yeah im a porsche fan.  So was aware of most of it.

 I guess in Assetto what I'd like to see is a category selector. I think in single player you can select "similar cars" when starting a race.  But the server manager doesn't appear to have this.  It would be nice to just select GT3 or GT2 etc etc with race cars.

I havent tried many of the pp2 cars yet but that 919 would make an awesome season car. I think there is due to be an audi LMP1 car and toyota LMP1 car at some point so maybe one to hold off a bit. But the strategy it gives with kers at a track like Spa is so good for racing. Its not a real hard car to drive but going through power modes and also using manual overtake button lets you use strategy against opponents, save power up early part of the lap then attack in the last sector against people that may have used it all up by then. In defence you can use it in spots where you may be vulnerable then save it up in sections the car behind cant really make a legit move. Then both are trying to find ways to get around the other person and I see why there is so much passing in modern WEC. Seems what F1 really needs is some more kers energy rather then drs which can really add to the racing.

The 911GT1 is also a great car, not sure if its in a similar era to the Mclaren f1 or if it would compete against it or the coming Maserati GT1 car. There are really so many options already that you could run lots of fun seasons with only more official content to come in the next few months. PP3 is on the way soon then there is a fair pile of non Porsche content early next year.

I added an LMP1 option to the poll.

McLaren F1 was indeed a direct competitor to the 911 GT1. Would be interesting to see how closely matched they are in game.

I agree that the 919 could be a good car to use for a season. For something so damn fast, it is surprisingly driveable. Would have to have Circuit de la Sarthe in the season with either of these options though  8)

I did put up a server with all the current ingame prototype and older gt cars at Spa.

Not a season idea, but a one off type of thing. ???

I'd like to do the 1965 Australian Grand prix. ;D
26 laps of Longford.

Sure, most cars were Brabham/Climax's or Cooper/Climax's, but the Lotus 25 would make a good comparison. ;)
It's open wheel but no d/f, so it's not that unfamiliar to tin-top enthusiasts.

Just a dream.......
