In 2006, Daewoo was already dead for a year; its a Chevrolet Kalos, not a Daewoo Kalos.


In South Korea (where this game was made) it's a Daewoo.

Anyone?

I'm genuinely curious, as I'd love to see an Avanti in Forza.


Ric Reed, who also owns a clothing line.

Avanti may be owned by someone else entirely though, since there was a separate make that made them after Studebaker died. No idea who has them now, since their website hasn't been touched in five years.

So? The Infernus is an NSX in this game, a Countach in GTAVC, and a Murcielago/Zonda in GTAIV.


But there is no Lamborghini in San Andreas. While I know, GTA has cars switch real life identities all the time, the fact that there is both a Impala & Crown Vic in GTAIV, and the one you think it looks like is the Impala, doesn't exactly strengthen the "It's a Crown Vic" argument.

Still, it is such a generic 90s sedan blob that it could be many different sedans from that decade. If you want to think it's a Crown Vic, go ahead. I disagree with this site too, but if the overwhelming majority feels it's not a Crown Vic, than it won't be one on the site.

Out of sheer curiosity, I googled 1994 Luxura.

A C6.R in 1994? It looks like one on the box, but the resemblance is most likely coincidental.

Maybe Sega was...inspired by the 4th Gen Camaro. No clue what that in game one is. I want to say F50, but that came out a year later. Unless images/doodles/concept showpiece was making the rounds a year earlier, or it went into production in 1994 as a 1995.

Feel free to post resemblances though. Some fake designs are based on real things, so they can help find out what something is.

Yes, Chrysler you own them and everything associated with them. But you did not make the AMX. Do not take the glory. You can have your own glory with 'Cudas and Chargers.

Evidently, the game can't let you have CVT & a race mod at the same time, so if you want it, you'll have to switch the drive train with something else using a cheat device. .

The good thing is, if you had this in FM3 (Wasnt an unicorn back then) when you import your FM3 Profile, all cars you had then which are now unicorns, are transfered too, so at least, i can have a very good bunch of unicorns.


Actually, not all unicorns transfer over. Just this, the Gallardo SL, the S204, 69 Camaro SS, RX-7 Spirit A and HKS Evo. The rest must be bought on the auction house. Still, some unicorns are better than none.

Personally, I find information on cars we don't get in the states (even in rebadged form) to be interesting. The
"Forbidden Fruit" thing. Takumi probably sees Clios everywhere he goes. They never came to the U.S., so even the most normal and basic Clios are interesting to me. Heck, saw a Alfa 156 a while back (IN THE U.S. On diplomat plates) and flipped out. Those of you who live in places where the 156 is common don't do that. But for me, it was special.

Also, Forza 3 had 35 Porsches. This, just 4.


And only the new exciting ones. Forza treated Porsche with respect to their heritage. EA is just like "Look! New Porsches! They are fast, expensive and shiny! Very shiny! Ooooooo...."

I realize that the vast majority of people probably don't care about the heritage, they just know that Porsches are fast and fast cars are cool, therefore, Porsches are cool, so I kinda get EA's reasoning in not putting in vintage 911s. Don't get me wrong, I like the new stuff, but put a 2012 911 next to a 1973, and chances are I won't even look at the modern car.

But man, why does Porsche itself agree to this cheapening of their image?

How does Tanner have a 2010 Alfa Giuletta in San Francisco? How does Vito own the world's only Lincoln Futura before it even existed? I try not to let things like this bother me unless the game is trying to be "SUPER REALISTIC".

Still, maybe there's a mission where Jack steals it from a car show or something.

Maybe technical problems, with the psysics, the damage...im sure they have a reason.


Upon seeing that it has open/fenderless wheels, this is probably why it isn't playable. T10 have said that the physics engine doesn't really work with open wheel cars. Whether is causes it to slow down, damage issues or something else altogether, cars like this and Caterhams, Atoms and F1 cars can't be raced in Forza 4.
