Turn 10 decides to let go of some of the cars

Turn 10 will let go of 200-300 cars for the new Forza Motorsport. This means they have decided to follow the same footsteps as Polyphony Digital: Stop adding older cars and move on to newer cars and SUVs. Considering how popular SUVs are, Polyphony Digital started focusing on SUVs, and Turn 10 has a strong focus on SUVs, especially Turn 10 is American.

Well… have you seen silhouettes for the next update for Gran Turismo 7? Three old cars :smiley:

No, Turn 10 is not letting cars go, they’re simply going to restore them later with updates, just like PGG is doing in FH5 :wink:

And they still have zero SUVs in GT7 :smiley:



Or just nonsense talk?

Assumptions…The “reveal” video includes many older cars (mostly muscle cars) and a few older race cars. So far, not one image has shown any SUV, truck or otherwise.

Does that mean we’ll finally stop seeing the irrelevant 2000 Mustang Cobra R? At least we stopped seeing the 2008 Cadillac Escalade

Just curious, why do you feel the 2k Cobra R was/is irrelevant?

The more popular model from that generation was the Terminator…much rather have that than the Cobra R. The Cobra R is an oddity

…more than anything just grew tired of seeing it in Forza, it’s my mental marker for how much stuff they’ve recycled since FM2

Well, I hope they don’t ditch that Cobra R '00. I consider it a classic and a must-have :slight_smile:

Here’s the clarification:

Looking to the Future of Car Culture

Yamauchi also reflects on how players — “I don’t think it’s the majority,” he notes — respond to new features such as GT Sophy or new Vision Gran Turismo cars, with requests for their own favorite older vehicles.

“I think it’s because they take it for granted that car culture will continue into the future,” he comments. Noting requests for cars like the Toyota Chaser and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV, he states “If you do [only] that, it will probably end, easily. It is not connected to the future at all,” adding “if all you want is old cars that’s fine, but that will never last.”

With that in mind, Yamauchi also reflects on the changing face of motoring today. “The types of cars are changing a lot… In the past, car enthusiasts drove sports cars… Nowadays, car enthusiasts often drive SUVs… I think we have to cover such cars.”

Of course that wouldn’t be too radical a change for Gran Turismo, with cars like the Range Stormer Concept (which became the Sport), Mazda MX-Crossport (which became the CX-7), and Renault Avantime in previous iterations of the game, but perhaps we’ll see more of them in the future.

Yes, I know you are referring to that interview with Kazunori Yamauchi from GTPlanet, I’ve read it too :slight_smile: However, the fact remains that Gran Turismo 7 still doesn’t have even one SUV and their embracing the future means only adding more and more sci-fi VGT concept cars that people seem to like less and less :smile:

I’d rather not have SUVs in FM. They are no good for circuit racing and given the reduced number of cars likely to be at launch the series would be better off with professional racing cars.

Can anyone link to any YouTube footage of an SUV race on a racetrack, or recommend any professional SUV racing leagues to follow?
