For the sake of wishing and hoping a dead horse may have free rein in this thread.

Sticking with the Porsche issue, I would like to make a request to improve the Parking Lot.

 

Car makes that are already featured in the game (such as Honda) would be in bold or a different color in the Parking Lot. Cars of makes not featured in Gran Turismo 5 (such as Porsche) would be italicized or in a color that doesn't stand out as well.

 

This will help determine which nominations are more likely to make it into Gran Turismo via updates, as PD already has the licensing to those particular brands.

Top Gear Technologies -- Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust (also referred to as Hammerhead-i Eagle Thrust)

 

hammerhead

 

Key Features:

  • Battery powered electric motor
  • 0-30mph in 6 seconds, top speed of over 60mph
  • Innovative diesel generator hybrid system (technology later stolen by the Fisker Karma)
  • 9-hour range
  • Faster than its competition; the G-Wiz, Chris Hoy's next door neighbor, and Hannah, the fastest girl in the Top Gear office.
  • Three abreast seating similar to the McLaren F1
  • Springy bumper to absorb impacts
  • Moustache

 

Overview

The Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust represents the start of an exciting future for the electric car, born from a desire to shake off the compromises of existing electric vehicles and to deliver a superior car for less than the price of its key rival, the G Wiz.

The Eagle i-Thrust is a brand new design, created and built entirely in the UK, and boasts an extraordinary combination of unique styling, sports car handling and an innovative propulsion system that harnesses a familiar battery-based electric powertrain in league with the dependable power of a diesel generator to provide maximum range and efficiency.

 

The Eagle i-Thrust’s distinctive looks were created entirely in-house at Hammerhead’s Technology Centre in Oxfordshire, drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences outside of the car world, including sharks, fighter jets, leaves and the actor Peter Bowles.

The bodyshell itself is made from aluminium, chosen not only for its low weight but also for its crash characteristics and quality appearance, both of which are clearly superior to the glassfibre or plastic typically employed to form the bodies of the Eagle’s key electric car rivals.

 

The Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust uses a dependable Wales & Edwards 96 volt electric motor allied to a well proven 12 volt batteries. However, in an innovative move typical of this ingenious vehicle, these batteries are kept topped up by a smooth and adequately powerful diesel generator promising greatly enhanced range and usability.

 

This rapid development time was possible thanks to the adoption of well-proven technology for the i-Thrust’s chassis, utilising the familiar and dependable backbone structure from the TVR Chimaera. The immediate benefit of employing this respected sports car chassis is that it brings with it all-round double wishbone suspension, immediately lending the i-Thrust a sporty and dynamic ‘race car’ feel that is further enhanced by the retention of the donor car’s direct acting rack-and-pinion steering system. This ingenious combination is typical of the lateral thinking and prudent use of well-proven parts that typifies the Eagle i-Thrust, in this case boosting efficiency without compromising the high levels of grip and progressive handing behaviour that keen drivers expect.

 

One of the most innovative features of the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust is undoubtedly its radical three abreast seating layout, inspired by the both the practicality of the Fiat Multipla and the sportiness of the legendary McLaren F1. Chief amongst the problems posed by this radical layout was the question of how to accommodate the central seat atop the central backbone of the chassis underneath. The solution proved to be elegant in its simplicity, whilst also giving the i-Thrust one of its most distinctive design features – the unmistakable HeadBox™ which gives the central passenger an unrivalled view of his surroundings.

 

The Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust is an innovator in the alternative fuel vehicle market. Unlike many of its key rivals, the i-Thrust combines sportiness, power, and efficiency in one affordable package. The future of the electric car is here, and it is the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust.

I understand your point, but at the same time don't want to appear to discriminate in this thread.  If the community votes for several "more likely" cars and a dead horse also makes it through, maybe it'll send the right message, instead of the constanted nagging that used to happen.

Manufacturer: Chevrolet

Car: Monte Carlo 1970-1988 / 1995-2007

Country: U.S.A.

 

The Monte Carlo has a rich history, with NASCAR in particular. Chevy has more wins in NASCAR than any other manufacturer, with the Monte Carlo providing the majority of those wins. Monte Carlo's were & still can be the car of choice at hundreds of "local" tracks around the country.

There aren't too many people that can't recognize one when they see it.

This would be a nice addition to the Chevrolet New Car Dealership.

 

 

Race how you expect to be raced.

Dodge

Charger SRT8

2008 - present

 

This car would make a great edition to the dodge dealership, and would look cool with the Dodge Challenger SRT8 that is allready in the game. The cars powerplant is a 6.4L Hemi V8 that is more powerful that last years 6.1L that graced all the SRT badge cars.

This car would be at home on the race track, would also be fun to race against the Challenger SRT that is there.

Manufacturer: Renault
Model: Alpine A110-50
Year: 2012
Conceptual rebirth of the legendary Alpine A110, nice race car, it would be a good improvement for Renault's garage dealer that has just a few cars. Seems to be a very light and smart model to drive, not just powerfull and with the best grip, in summary, guarantee of lots of fun with a great history!
