Adding reward cars to the car dealer and Free Play/making featured tours permanent

*Please delete if this is a duplicate topic/idea

With the rise of so-called “exclusive reward cars” for Forza Motorsport, what worries me is that they’re not available as rental cars in Free Play, and that their respective tours and even the showcase event will eventually expire, which could potentially lead to fears of the “come and go” mechanic seen in the Festival Playlist of the Horizon games, where if you miss out on a particular season, it will take a while before that car can be obtained again.

And since Forza Motorsport has no Auction House, that would mean there would be absolutely no way to get them if you ever miss out on them (it’s also pointless in Horizon as people take advantage of the Auction House for otherwise predatory means of scalping cars).

Another is that if you sell or remove these cars from your garage, you won’t be able to get them again.

Given this is a live service game, with free cars coming monthly, I started worrying about this when I didn’t see such cars available to purchase and to use as rental cars in Free Play, and a Youtuber once told me that even if you get them as a reward for completing their respective tours/events, they still won’t be available as a rental car.

List of exclusive cars

2020 Acura #6 ARX-05 DPi
2020 Audi R8 V10 performance
2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
2015 Ferrari 488 GTB
2017 Ford GT
2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
2010 Lexus LFA
1995 Porsche 911 GT2

Here are three solutions to ensure all players don’t miss out on these cars:

  1. Have the cars available in the car dealer and as a rental car in Free Play in advance as soon as players unlock them.

  2. Going back from suggestion number 1, once their featured tours and showcase event expires, make the cars available to everyone in both the car dealer and Free Play, and add the tour to the base Builders Cup experience.

  3. Make them available right away from the get-go on the car dealer and Free Play, only having them as an easy and free reward once the events have been completed.

That way, for completing these tours, at least you get a free car, but for those who can’t, and willingly won’t, the car(s) will be available for you to buy and/or rent.

Situations may happen to players, with common examples being work-life balance, and occasionally being away from home, where there is no access to the game, and with that, the likelihood of missing out on these cars are very high.

They already confirmed that spotlight cars would be on autoshow for everyone to get

Also is not proposital, its a bug of the game

Just saw this thread but could you show me where they mention it’ll be available in the autoshow for everyone?

He’s referring to the spotlight cars. The cars to worry about are the rewards after completing each tour.

Remember Motorsport 2? Remember how completing a series gave you a car that you could then purchase in the Autoshow but it was locked before completing it? That’s exactly how this should work, no more timed exclusivity, and all post-launch Tours should also be added to a “Bonus Tour” section.


I thin it will happen enventually, i think they are just trying to get more tracks into the game before do that

One such tweet by the official Forza Motorsport Twitter/X account suggests that the Audi R8 V10 performance (and Acura ARX-05) will no longer be obtainable after the Open Series and Track Tours expire, so this has brought some attention to light, and why Turn Ten need to address that.

As of writing, I did finish these two tours and got these cars, but I’m trying to speak for everyone else who can’t, or voluntarily won’t be getting these cars due to whatever circumstances (be it life happening to people, or being far away from access to the game).

Upon checking the car list in Free Play, it says that 528 cars are eligible as rental cars, but at least seven (the six reward cars from completing tours, and the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Forza Edition) are missing as cars you can buy and/or rent.

As far as I know, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Forza Edition is a loyalty reward for having played a previous Forza game (either any Motorsport or Horizon game) some time during the first week of the game’s launch.

This makes me hate “come and go” mechanics even more.


I really hate FOMO. If I buy a game, I should be able to access everything by playing at my own pace and not miss out on cars because I didn’t play enough or at all in a given week or month. The only kind of missible things I’m okay with are things like nameplates and such.


Because of the apparent freezing/crashing that some players are still experiencing when playing events/tours in the Builders Cup, I think this feature suggestion makes even more sense by the day.

When I played the Open Series and Track Tour on my Xbox Series X, I didn’t experience any crashing/freezing whatsoever, but yeah, I would still like to speak for everyone who’s having these problems, especially those playing on other platforms.

UPDATE: The Audi R8 V10 Performance has disappeared as the Open Series Tour from the past version of the game has expired, and Turn Ten have not fixed or addressed “come and go” mechanics.

I hate this mechanic in all games. RogertheAtheist is spot on when he says that one should be able to play at their own pace. People have lives away from gaming.

I missed the Open Class reward car. Why? Well I did not know it was going to expire. Where in game did it tell you? It did not until the new Open Class event was added and then a countdown timer appeared. Once that happened (and of course only after I had opened the game) I realised that I had to complete the premium performance event to even access it. I tried to get through the events but as I had to keep restarting due to the FPS dropping into the 20s I had to give up on it.

‘Play our game when we tell you to, how we tell you to and you will get a reward. We have your money so now we are in charge.’

Well I suggest you put that where it is not very sunny.


Honestly… I have always found Motorsport series of games to pretty much be a grind… to make credits or win a car to add to your garage. One can never make a enough credits to buy a car because many times you need to buy cars to race an event series. So your always burning credits. It’s like bailing water from a boat with a hole in it. You can never get anywhere credit wise to purchase a car you want to buy and not have to buy it to race.

For that reason… I was not going to buy another one… but they added the MidOhio course to the tracks to race on. I heaved and hawed about it for a while and decided to buy it again. Spent a lot time there in my youth watching racing.

Ir takes about 7-9 hours to get through a tour to win a car. You get credits for leveling up from time to time but nothing to write home to mom about. The winnings per race are fairly paltry as well. It’s pretty much like the older Motorsports game. I just do not have that kinda of time to play to win 1 car.

I will give them this though… the cars drive a lot better in this version of the game. I no longer see the rear end of my car out the left or right side window of my car when I turn a corner.

There needs to be a better reward system above and beyond what’s currently being done to keep me playing. Horizon has the wheelspins as you level up where you get extra credits and sometimes a car as you level up.

It appears that most players have the same opinion. I very rarely race against anyone with a level higher than “1”.

What makes matters worse other than time-limited cars is that they even got rid of the entire Track Tour and all of its race events, never to return even as part of the core Builders Cup experience.

The spotlight cars are still there though, but not the reward cars, so to those who missed out, this gives you an incentive to vote for this suggestion.

Time-limited cars are annoying enough, but career mode events as well? This has me even more worried.
