We're probably going to get that Nissan before anything else.

Just a trend I've noticed with PD's slight bias towards Nissan...

As the list of nominations grows (blatant hint to all) and we get to the voting stages, we will be looking to give a clear indication of what cars the forum community wishes to see in the game, whatever the brand may be.

I think Nissan has been a devoted partner and should receive a lot more praise for their willingness to grant PD seemingly unlimited access to not only their catalogue of cars, but the inner workings of their r&d department and motorsports divisions.

Not to mention the real world development work PD does for Nissan. I believe it to be a rather unprecedented relationship between a game designer and the subject matter of his work. I don't believe many others get the same level of real life input that PD gets from that working partnership. If it means a better game to have a few extra Skylines to ignore, I'm fine with it.

To be fair though, even if it's yet another Nissan, that fat fendered beast is a beauty as well as being a sorely under represented class of car from the chapters of racing history. I wouldn't mind seeing a DLC Pak of 10 various makes and models of cars like those at all. Wouldn't even care if I drove them, I'd load them up just to look at... ?B)

Ok, a car I would have liked to have had for real and which I feel would be a good add to  the game.

The Renault 5 GT Turbo

1988-1991

Renault's original "Pocket Rocket".

France

http://www.renault5gtturbo.com/R5Desktops/11.jpg

The little Renault was affordable, but able to run with the big boys.  It started Renault on the Pocket Rocket  path so it had significance.  It was raced, though not in the major events.  Would be good match to the Civics, Golfs, and such in the game already.,  We need more variety in this class, in my opinion.

Besides, I'd love to drive the little thing. 

edit:  A (no doubt modified) 5 GT Turbo vs a R32 Skyline video I found.  Enjoy.

The Hennessey Venom GT:

Manufacturer: Hennessey Motorsports

United States

Super Car Classification

2012/2013

Available in spyder and coupe.

This car envisions everything to the extreme. From a Highly modified LS7 block (twin turbocharged), to the all custom frame and suspension, this car leave nothing to reserve. With a Whopping 1200+hp and 1150 Torque, it is estimated to reach a top speed of over 274mph... and is completely street legal in all 50.

I suggested having four votes per year, centred around the times when the forums have good support, so that would mean after summer holidays are over, in September, for the first one. That also gives us enough time to figure things out and to build up enough in the Parking Lot, and to figure out the voting process, a bit. Depending on how many categories of cars we have, we probably will need more than one vote per quarter (because of the voting system here), so we need time to spread that out, too. (Hey, we're learning on the job! )

However, it is OzDaddy's call.

Glad you asked, Go-jet.  As MasterGT has said, we are looking at a quarterly voting schedule with the first regular voting to happen by September at the latest.  If the list of nominations reaches a sufficient quantity before then or we learn something on the job to prompt an earlier vote we'll get started earlier.

Now I said "regular" vote for a reason.  We are looking at the possibility of setting up an initial vote using a selection of cars from the previous Wish list.  This will give recognition of the effort people put into posting there and give us a good start for the Essential List.  It will also be a good trial run for the voting process and let us iron out the kinks.  More details of the initial vote to follow at a later date.

As you can see, we are organizing some things as we go along, but the aim is to keep moving forward and making this a useful exercise.

Impala SS 409:

Manufacture: Chevrolet

United States

Classic Muscle Car

1963

hardtop or convertible

This is one of the most iconic musce cars, all thanks its amazing performance for its time. it owned the street, strip, and held its own against the mopars in nascar. the 409 (after some small tuning) could push this heavy car down the strip in under 13 seconds. with the dual 2 barrel carb setup stock horsepower was 425, and 425 lb/ft of torque. some say the first muscle car was the 64 gto, but the first true one was the '63 ss 409
