Cars - Porsche 911 GT3 2007 - Outdated Model and Texture Issues (1743494)

This is not the first time we’ve experienced glossy unfinished and bugged black textures in cars’ interiors in the “all-new” FM. Glossy headliners, glossy lower interior textures and glossy door sills, you name it FM got it!

However, it is a real shame when you have a super outdated, disproportionate & inaccurate car model yet again with the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3. So many beloved cars are truly neglected in this game!

Aside from the skyline and the physics (FAR from perfect when you see a Valkyrie AMR super bouncing its wheels when driving like no downforce) - what does this title bring to the table?

I request you to please rescan, remodel and fix the vehicle’s graphics for the sake of FORZA fans who remain hopeful.

As a 997 911 fan, looking at this thing hurts me on a personal level. Body line is ruined, entire front end is ruined, rear end is broken, not a single thing on the car is actually correct. They had entire 12 (TWELVE) years to get a random 997 911 and scan it, they even had the 997.2 model which they could use to model a fairly accurate (but still not spot-on) 997.1, but they chose to do neither. This is the Vauxhall Monaro situation all over again, except they had more time and a less accurate model to work on.
Can people finally stop defending this? It’s a display of the myriad of things wrong with Forza Motorsport…


I don’t know the differences between this model and the real-life one. We may have haven’t had this car in Forza since FM4, but I don’t know what’s wrong with this.

I even found out that someone showed the proof of how bad the 996 GT3’s model in Forza games actually is, I can notice that the rear end of the car in-game is flat. But sadly, it’s under the “Fixed car models” discussion by MatateusanR5., which was later unfortunately taken down by ManteoMax.

Also, that Porsche GT3 is the 2004 model year, if you’re wondering. I bet the title typo of this thread is mistaken as 2007.

GT7 had the same 996 Porsche GT3 but they had the most accurate model ever, even if Porsche is new to Gran Turismo world since GT Sport.

Meanwhile, Gran Turismo’s creator, producer, director, and PD’s CEO - Kazunori Yamauchi, owns this Porsche IRL.
