This is an attempt to provide the developers at Rockstar a more organized set of ideas for their upcoming installment of Grand Theft Auto.
Thread Topic: GTA V VEHICLES
Disclaimer: Yes, I know that Rockstar won't spend money to get the licensing/naming rights to the following vehicles. So, when I write "Corvette" I am just suggesting a Corvette-like car (such as the Coquette from IV)
Overall Theme: Build on GTA IV's cars, add some planes, trains, and automobiles. Basically, I thought the look, feel, & sound of the majority of GTA IV's cars were good. Just please fix the physics and add a more diverse array of vehicle options. Also, please bring back vehicle customization, limitless taxi-cab missions, limitless vigilante missions, limitless paramedic missions, and limitless firetruck missions. And please add more to the smorgasboard.
I'm sure that alot of the vehicles on your list will be returning - you're probably right about them not going the distance in getting the licensing taken care of, which is probably why they use their fictional names lol. Most of the vehicles that appear in-game are modeled after real vehicles...the Ruiner that's in GTA IV is modeled after a Chevy Camaro...there MAY be a Mustang type of vehicle in GTA V - we got a glimpse of it in either one of the screenshots or one of the trailers...the footage shows what looks like the rear end of a 60's-70's era Mustang, but that is all that's shown of the car - no front/side view shown yet...maybe in the next trailer or batch of screenies.

The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.
I have to once again stress the importance of taxi-cab missions. They are by far the best way for players to learn the massive maps (while making a little extra dough and unlocking cool stuff). It was also a great way to enjoy the scenery. Without it, it makes the maps too discouraging to learn.
Please, please, please, please bring back the taxi-cab missions. Please make them available early on in the game. Please make them unlimited. Please give bonuses for reaching certain stages in our cab driving careers (consecutive passengers, total passengers, areas discovered, etc.).
PS. The unlimited vigilante missions & fire truck missions come in 2nd & 3rd place as far as importance to learning the massive maps. Please remember to add new types of work-related missions (tow truck, parking patrol, etc.).
