One of the best racing games! The Evolution mode really adds a nice element of money management that helps make you think when rushing through stages and crashing your car. As your car gets banged up, your car's performance starts taking a hit, but if you keep repairing your car before every race, repair costs start adding up, and you're losing lots of money.

everything is working okay but where is the intro and also all the images that are supposed to show in the main menu doesn't work so can someone provide me with a link to restoring all these files?

There is a patch where the game can be run at any resolution, with lots of fixes.
Just installed, works fine on my 2K display :)

If your game is crashing specifically on Normandie track, try turning "Lens Flare" off on advanced graphics options menu. It worked fine to me.

Try deactivating compatibility mode if you have Win10 to avoid game crashing during races.

I L O V E D this game as a kid, and now I'm in love with the soundtrack!

I loved this game! I own it but I don't feel like looking for it or it may not run on Win10 anyway. Thank You.

I'd like to recommend -anyone- with some amount of know-how to visit PCGW when you're trying to handle old games. It never hurts to keep that site bookmarked!
As for me, I want to know how to make a custom portrait for the license. I know you can do it with basic images, but my knowledge stops there. I think it's a BMP?

@valmord autobahn, alps and switzerland they are not bonus tracks, they are tracks released when completing the "evolution" mode (which is basically the career, you buy your own cars, fix them to be damaged and eventually buy upgrade parts).
I love the "classic" part of the career, the 356 and 911 are perfectly represented

@Jay: On the executable, right click, Properties, "Compatibility" and change it to like Windows XP Service Pack 2. That should do it.

When I try to install on Windows 10, I can mount the image and run Autorun.exe, even running as admin the screen just disappears so I don't know how to install it.

I am using windows xp - I don’t have an option to run as an as admin? Is there something in the registry confused because I used my code VS the one on this site?

Hey all- I lost the cd for this game I owned back in 2000. I tried the file and before I saw the code was included here used the one listed on my original cd case. It worked and the game loaded. I shut it down and ever since it says incorrect cd, please insert correct disk. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times and I cannot get back to installing the proper code for this site download. Any tips? Thanks!

Just A Mod Guy 2020-04-05 0 point
you guys can use vmware to get windows XP or 95 to play this games! thats what i did this most of them.
XTriCKs 2020-04-01 0 point
To play the damn thing, open the .bin file with a ISO tool, I prefer PowerISO. Extract the files in a folder, run the Autorun.exe, after installation right click Porsche.exe, go to compatibility settings and set run in Windows 7 or XP XP3 mode, and as an admin. Have fun.

Why is there no gameplay music,intro videos available for this game?
If you have a perfect original copy of this game please upload it.

Downloaded the package called the essentials and worked all fine for me in windows 8.1

I remember you have to delete a file named gimme.dll in the games main directory to get it to run in newer Windows versions.

The peak of the NFS franchise. A perfect mix between realistic physics, simulation, car management and arcade simplicity.
It's like the combination of the good games: NFS2, Underground and Shift into a single game.

(win7 x64) run as administrator and use Windows compatibility mode as window xp sp3

Works great on WIN10, but you have to input the emulator command right after running the shortcut or else it crashes back to desktop.
1. Start the game by clicking the shortcut on your desktop
2. IMMEDIATELY press ` (the key left to the 1 on your keyboard) and type in /ECHO WINx486 emulate true = 1
3. If you typed it correctly, now the game runs in compatibility / emulator mode

I'm on Windows 7.
I tried everything in a whole afternoon. Doesn't work.
Balesky 2019-06-09 0 point
I tried everything, nfs essentials, compatibility patches, fixes, etc. Nothing. The game crashed every single time I go into a race, I'm on windows 10 64bit btw.

- mount .cue with winCDemu
- start cddrive:\\setup\Setup.exe
- write cd key (nxt)
- set custom type and set destination folder ("d:\games\nfs5") (nxt) (nxt) (nxt)
- IE GameUpdater installer (CANCEL) !?
- add desktop / register later
- copy patch (Need-for-Speed-Porsche-Unleashed_Patch_Win_EN_Patch-35.exe) in to game directory (d:\games\nfs5 ?)
- run the patch (d:\games\nfs5\Need-for-Speed-Porsche-Unleashed_Patch_Win_EN_Patch-35.exe)
- install, yes, ok
- copy "Need-for-Speed-Porsche-Unleashed_Mod_Win_EN_Additional-Cars.zip/NFS_5_Cars/" content into game dir
- overwrite all files
[wide screen and full hd monitor hack] - it doesn't work for me, and every time it is frozen with dx7 render, so i use nGlide
- download this: https://bitbucket.org/fk/porsche-graphics-hacks/downloads/ (1.0.1?)
- read the readme
workable with thrustmaster f430 wheel (auto-center: by the wheel)

Have to say, NFS Porsche is without a doubt the best game ever. I like Flight Sim as well, from MS, but nothing holds a candle to Porsche! Thank you for this!

Thanks for the upload! I can't find my copy. To those who wondered where to install the patch, I just pointed to the NFS folder in the program files where windows put the EA folder. Running on Windows using W95SP3 compatibility setting.

I did not get to play this game in windows XP, even installing the game correctly and applying the patch. But after a moment I have an idea and I run the executable of the game in compatibility mode with the option "Windows 95" enable so the game runs perfectly. But for this works must be the patch installed.

Really would have liked if someone would have brought newer graphics to this game. Same engine, nothing to tweak here, but newer graphics...

”Got it installed and extras too but it kicks out on Normandie same as my old copy.
Not sure what's been fixed then. So disappointing as I gave it a last chance.
Anyone can help with this?”
I think you should play around with the in game graphic setting or your graphic setting, reset it, or whatever. Also sometimes resetting your progress may fix this, stepback a bit. Sometimes you need to drive carefully.

Crashes right after the intro video during 'loading', switching back to Windows.
Why? How to fix?
