Its a mix of Renault 25 by its large size and wheels

And of its north american relative, the Eagle Premier

Here is the 604 American, the headlights are very similar to the car from game.
FR Mrcarguywolrd

2018-02-18 04:16
I say this, since I did not find any pictures of the 604 taxi, but if of other Peugeots, then it is a 604, but they were inspired by the Taxi that the Tagora has.
It could also be that at the time they used any car that is resistant as a taxi, like many other Peugeots, nothing more that would have to be fixed in Films between 1978 and 1986 in France, especially in the streets of Nice.

Although it can also be a mixture between the American Peugeot 604 of 1979 and the Tagora.
FR Mrcarguywolrd

I guess is an mix from two cars.
I found a picture of the Tagora
Taxi Parisien says, it used to be a taxi in France at some point in the late 70's, only the front lenses were changed because of the real brands in the vehicles of the game, as happened with the Ford Mustang of Miami, other is equal to the car of the photo, even the wheels of the car are the same as those of the game.
It is not a Renault 9 or Allianz, it is not a Renault brand, it is Talbot, because, they are small cars, the Tagora is a longer and bigger car like in the game.

Yep, but this is the US version of the 604 due to the twin headlights.

IMHO, front and rear — Volkswagen Atlantic/Jetta A1, side — Ford Taunus TC2 or TC3.
Or actually a Datsun Bluebird 910.

Renault or Talbot. Final decision. I mean, how many people agreed for Bluebird? 1? 2? A Bluebird in France would make about as much sense as an Austin in France.

Martin Edmondson just told me this was the same model as the taxi in Stuntman, which was also used as a crushable car in the Stunt Arena according to the designer.

Looks like if we ever have any vehicle queries about Driver or Stuntman we now have a contact! :D

It doesn't really look like a Renault 9 or 11 apart from the grille. And not a single angle of the car looks anything like a Talbot Tagora.

Some of you guys need to learn to look at the entire car, rather than just focusing on tiny details like the door handles and the wheels. Those things are changed to make the in-game car look generic. The general shape of the vehicle is what's more likely to be influenced by real-life cars.

So far, the closest suggestions have been the Audi 100/200 and the Toyota Crown.

I vote for a Tagora.

It doesn´t have the 3rd little window behind the rear door, but the main lines (like the hood) are from the Tagora.

Well i think Renault 9 is sensible as this is set in France. Also the albot Tagora looks absolutely nothing like this car. Thats all i'm saying for now.
US ProwlerX

2007-10-13 18:05
At this point, it doesn't matter any more. I've done my best but it really just doesn't make any sense how this car can possibly be a Talbot Tagora. The front end doesn't match and the body is very much comparable to the Renualt 9 even though the developers could have possibly made it bigger to resemble a Tagora. So there's no use in going on with this debate any longer since everyone has clearly said enough. Nothing will change.

Not to dredge up this long-running debate again, but i believe that it is a Tagora. If you even pay attention to the car's proportions, not to mention it's wheels, you would be able to tell the difference. For one thing, the wheelbase is much too long to resemble either the Renault 9 or 11. Both of those were compact cars, but this one is clearly a midsize vehicle. Just look at the side profile, the Tagora clearly matches the car depicted in terms of size:


Renault 11:

Tagora was not used a lot as taxi, it was expensive and they did not sold a lot.
In addition of that, the Tagora and Solara had a 3rd side window, unlike cars like Peugeot 305/505/604, Fiat Argenta, etc.
