Resembles a late 80s-early 90s GM J-body, particularly a Pontiac Sunbird - I take the squished-in rear end as an artistic touch, no real car looks like that - and pretty pointless to have a boot that short when there's not even a hatch.

It is a decent model and it is free to use, I dont have much problem with the frequent usage of this.

To me it looks kind of lazy when a game contains assets you see in many other games. Also there is some inconsistency in various models' level of detail.

Not ripping on anybody though. Hiring someone to make 3d models for your game can be quite expensive.

Same 3d model as or

Automation - The Car Company Tycoon Game (2015)
To me it seems to be largely based on the Porsche 956. The cockpit shape is a definite match, unlike 787 or Jag.

Automation considers spoilers as separate add ons, so the base body has to have a slightly different spoiler-less rear end. Also, the rear is stretched lower because otherwise the underbody would be visible in Automation. Without these alterations I think it would be very close to the Porsche.

They didn't close Pontiac down so that Buick has a risk to get bankrupt. To me Buick lost its identity

I'm pretty sure the only reason Buick wasn't axed during GM's restructuring was Buick's huge market share in China. Otherwise it would have made more sense keeping the Saturn brand for dumping Opel designs in the US.

As for Buick's identity, the recent Opel based models are far more interesting cars than the beigemobiles they made in the 90s. The previous Regal/Century was one of the most faceless and bland vehicles ever sold. In my opinion Opel designs have really made Buick a more attractive brand than they were in late 90s to 00s.

I think the rear half is definitely not a DB7. The roofline is not as gradual as the DB7, but more radical like the Venturi.
The car is also more boxy than the DB7.

I see your point, but I think the sharper roofline and boxiness is a byproduct of the limited number of polygons.

The difference between sedans and coupes have never been the number of doors. Both can have 2 or four. It's nothing new or recent.

Honestly, this one wasn't intended to resemble any real-world model. It's just a generic 1990s car, designed to be a flexible base body in the game.

I know that this place seems to avoid MFG like plague, so I don't mind if you list it as something you think it shares similarities with.

AutoTracker wrote
Why did they list it as "90sSedanPatario" in the game files then? :??:

It's just a file name. Since the unlock year for this body is 1992, 90sSedan made sense. That's not to say this body can't be used to make a 2000s sedan in the game.

Volkswagen Transporter

Transporter came both as panel van and basic windowed passenger van. The Caravelle and Multivan were only available as passenger vans, which compared to the passenger Transporter had better equipment and nicer interiors.

There are multiple versions of this in the game, including windowless panel versions.
Ford Mondeo

Grand Theft Auto (1997)
Your top view drawing of the Mondeo has the side windows way too curved and slanted. What did you use as a reference?

The roof of the mk1 Mondeo is quite flat actually, and viewed from the top, looks just as flat as the Sierra's.

Also, you seem to ignore that the Sierra has additional rear quarter windows, which the Mondeo doesn't. Just like the Mundano.

All signs point towards Mondeo.

And what else? Cause a window doth not a Mondeo make. :/

Let's see... the whole car.

It's a Mondeo with the usual GTA1 altered proportions (shorter body, especially shorter bonnet). Looks absolutely nothing like a Sierra nor a Scorpio (except from the early DMA concept's front end... but that is not in the game)

Since you're "siding with Maxine", there's obviously no point in arguing with you.

So this is Freightliner. Most likely a 1995 FL Series but i'm not sure about the exact model.

That's the older bodystyle, from the 80s. Fits perfectly well in 80s to 90s setting.

Since this here seems to be the place for criticism towards the vehicle range in GTA V, I'll chip in my $0.02

There should be WAY more cars from the 90s and 80s. Modern era (2000+) cars are well represented, same applies for cars from 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Why are there so few 1980s and 1990s cars then?

There's a very thin line between a wagon and an MPV. Also, considering that there's a lot of overlapping between body styles, in my opinion, either are fine for the Prius v.

The Roosevelt may not be available to purchase in GTA Online, but it still exists in the game. Anyone who purchased it at the time and kept it, has it; plus it's available in single player.

Even the wheels. Why not just get a copyright and slap the Chevy logo on? You've pretty much copied the whole car. :/

There's a reason why the GTA series never uses licenced cars. Doing that would impose so many restrictions, for example not being able to blow 'em up or run over pedestrians in them.

Car companies don't want to see their products portrayed in a negative manner.
