<50 (?) cars in FM remain to be revealed - analysis and predictions [Update 2023/9/15: +27 cars]

People will disagree with me, but I’m quite happy the car list is being cut. It lends an opportunity to better tailor the upgrade and tuning system, the PI Class and Homologation system, the cosmetic modifications and painting system, and in general, the physics and handling models.

The problem is, if you’re a long time Forza player, you know that Turn 10 is not going to take any advantage of this, and you should realise the fact they are STILL using car models that are 16 years old is an indication they will not take this opportunity.

We should prioritise quality over quantity, and cutting the car count GIVES Turn 10 the chance to focus on that, but the incompetence since FM4, which is 12 years ago I might add, proves that they won’t.


Makes me believe that rally and off-road racing won’t be a thing at least at launch. Motorsport is in serious need of off-road and rallying, to be honest, and it’s only a matter of time when they will actually get to implement it. I believe SUV’s and some pick-up trucks will still be there at launch, but the rally cars, heavy off-roaders and trophy trucks will likely not make the cut until there is at least some form of rallying in the game.

FM8 has the potential to have an even larger and more diverse car list than Motorsport 7 post-launch, and it was expected that the launch day car list would be slightly smaller (over 500 cars) as opposed to over 750 (786 from Motorsport 7, in fact, minus these pointless Forza Editions). I really hope they don’t continue with doing Forza Editions for this game, as they are boring, uninspired and inflate the car list in such an unnecessary way (every car is unique, but not these Forza Editions).

I probably don’t see NASCAR and/or IndyCar happening because of their involvement with the Ponzi scheme that is Motorsport Games. They go as far as holding them up with licensing and yet their games, as well as their business model, aren’t doing so well.

Just really hope that not a lot has been cut to such an extent. I still dream of every car from FM4 making it to the game eventually though.

I’m predicting at least every Hypercar and Extreme Track Toy from FH5 (minus Forza editions and the Sierra Cars Alpha Pikes Peak) will make it to FM8.


This would be nice if you were doing a list with the cars who never appeared in Forza franchise with their probabilities to appear in FM.

That would be one hell of an undertaking :smile:

However, I could say that one of my lists serves that purpose to some extent:

There are all cars from the Suggestions Hub that have 100 votes or more (as well as cars with 86+ votes on the second, hidden list at the bottom). Those with the biggest amount of votes (highlighted in bold) are the most probable to be featured in Forza games sooner or later… unless they aren’t lost in some kind of licensing hell (e.g. Mercedes SLR McLaren) :slight_smile:

300 cars had a great run while it lasted. Now its time for Turn 10 to let these cars go.

So we have another FH5 update announced and another four #NewToForza cars to add to the list. That’s really nice.

But… four? Not really, since both Porsche Mission R and Porsche 935 were earlier revealed as content in Forza Motorsport (albeit the latter was later mysteriously removed from the launch list).

As for Lamborghini Huracan STO and the new Audi RS 6 Avant - both are “must-haves” for Forza Motorsport and I’m sure we’ll see them in the game at launch.

At this point, I hope a believable launch day car list is leaked.


We have six #NewToForza cars coming to FH5 with the Series 21 update. I think two of them perhaps could be added to Forza Motorsport: Cupra Formentor and Tavascan (or three if Turn 10 wishes to let us have some dumb fun on racing circuits in the Hummer EV :smile: )

As far as I’m concerned, the best would be to have only high-performance cars, supercars and hypercars. In addition, of course, to racing cars. Enough with vans and SUVs, there’s Horizon for those, they don’t give any emotion on the track.


Eh, no.

Forza was about being able to buy and a upgrade regular car and go track racing with it. Not to mention classic cars

Not everyone wants high perf, super or hypercars only.


You are right. As long as they’re cars, they’re fine. Above 1.5 meters in height, no thanks.

Oh yeah there’s a lot more that was revealed during that showcase, like the Maserati Ghibli Q4 or a Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing (i think)


What is the red #4 car?

Honestly, no idea

So Turn 10 does have the license to use Lancia. So, does that mean we can actually expect a return of the brand in Horizon 5 at some point? I know you specifically can’t answer this. I’m just wondering outloud rhetorically.

We’ll have to see, from what i know through my contacts, they could be limited to just track-racing (or it could be Toyota 2.0)

@SechsComic73130 Hmm… Where have you seen the Lancia? Because it’s not listed here, unfortunately :frowning:

I think that’s a Bluebird then, could’ve sworn it was a Lancia, whatever, i blame it on the Mandela Effect
