Im sorry. It is like Desscythe17 wrote!


Yeah, that's the kind of problem you can run into with unplayable cars... I came from Nova, via Commodore and Taunus to Peugeot 403, and I still think - considering body contour and rear lights - that it's meant to be that one.
Does anyone have a suggestion...? There aren't many cars with this kind of rearlight units.

I'm afraid that's impossible. It's just a static background and this is the only angle at which you get to see the car.

I think the car looks a bit more modern than the 403, but the taillights on the 404 don't match.

Maybe, or the successor the 404.


The 404 has a different rear end:

Maybe it helps to mention that I found this cab in Rome. BTW I think it could be a Peugeot.


Yes, you're right!!!
It's a 1960 Peugeot 403.

The rear styling and rearlight units of the Trabant are totally different from this game car.
The Opel Commodore I mentioned earlier is close, but now I think I have found the one:
1970 Ford Taunus:

Moreover, it makes no sense in a 3-car game to have a Trabant alongside a Volkswagen Golf and BMW 3...

I'm sorry but I still think it's closer to the Trabant than those two big cars you mentioned. Also, I don't see why it doesn't make sense it's in this game? The Trabant was a very popular German car, and I think it has been produced over a very long time. So there's a possibility that it is this car. I mean, the roofline and taillights are very similar.

Why not? This game was released in 1993, and Trabants were very common back then. I still think that Trabant is the closest, unless someone can find an exact match.

... and you're kidding too, aren't you...?!!!
Trabant is a German car make, but you cannot compare apples with pears!!!

But it does match? I know the game image is very unclear, but the roofline and vertical taillights look a lot like the image posted above.
I've looked around the web, but it's impossible to find a better image of this car.
The car on the image probably isn't as square as it looks, as the VW Golf in this game is also really square. That's why I think it's a rounder Trabant.

Trabant is an East German car make, but this game car looks nothing like a Trabant!!!

Yes, you're right... I had not yet noticed that this is a German game.
The rear styling is like the Opel Commodore, although the rearlight units are a bit different, but I cannot find any other car that comes closer...

It also makes sense to use an Opel Commodore (their largest luxury sedan from the 60's) as a taxi cab.
