Update car modeling

It’s been a major point of discussion amongst fans for a while now, many of these iconic Japanese tuner cars in Forza have incredibly outdated, or just downright inaccurate, car models (looking at you S15), and some even have taken steps back, as they’ve had all aftermarket bumpers and kits removed as early as Horizon 2, and never had anything added back (The Nissan R32 being the prime example).

With the Horizon series now well into it’s fifth title, and getting ready to celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary of the first horizon game, it’s rather unfair that these fan favorite cars have been neglected a proper model update, while other more unknown or or unused cars in the series have had full revamps. The cars that have been well overdue an update are as follows (by brand):


2000 Nissan Silvia (S15)
1999 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R
1993 Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R
1994 Nissan Silvia K’s (S14 Kouki)
1992 Nissan Silvia K’s (S13)


1998 Subaru Impreza 22b STI


1998 Toyota Supra (MK4)
1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex (AE86)


1997 Mazda RX-7


1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI

This list was compiled by not just my opinions, but from many other members of the Forza community, and even some rather popular Forza YouTubers (a few who have well over 1 million subscribers). This, as I have said before, isn’t just a new issue, but been a topic of discussion going as far back as Horizon 3.

We are asking the devs desperately to update these cars, as for being some of the communities most used cars (taking a look back at the early Horizon 5 season that showed what percentage of players drove a car from a specific country) are from Japan, as it brought in a 25% community usage, when the next biggest group was Germany with a 9%, it just seems as if the devs aren’t listening to it’s community, when that is what the devs said they would like to pride themselves on…

I hope this post is able to gain some traction for this, and that the developers please listen to this years long suggestion and request.

Why are there not more votes?
This is a major issue


Please please remodel your hella old car models. Cars like the s15 silvia, r32 Skyline or R32 Golf look nothing like their real life counterparts. They are way to boxy and low poly.

To the community, please add all the cars that need remodeling and give this thread an upvote.

The whole game needs a serious update/remake. It still builds on stuff they did 18 years ago when Forza Motorsport 1 came out. For example the GUI/menus, car parts, tuning system, etc. It’s not necessarily bad, but it is outdated, other games have evolved way past that point. In Gran Turismo you can adjust the turboboost, add weight and shift it front/rear, build your own rear wing, etc. Why can’t we have that??

Here’s a video on it:


Some of the car models are from the XBox 360 days.


They need to stop being like ‘we have a model for this car’ and being more like ‘do we have the best possible model for this car? If not, get a new one’


Yes, please!

Great idea for a solution to this problem!



Thanks for the feedback!

Oh yes, another suggestion about car models, I love to see that! It needs way more attention too

Please, could you put the laser lights from the BMW M3 G80 that you’ll recently added in the latest update onto the BMW M4 G82. It adds an extra bit of aggression.

Thank you!


I think you should make it into its own suggestion

I agree, if you look at Gran Turismo’s car models they are probably 2x more detailed and accurate than Forza’s. Ok they take longer to make but I don’t mind waiting.
