    I think he means things like the Chevrolet Corvette Gr.3 and things like that. And Vision GT.

    I feels like I can just, reach out and touch the leather on that wheel, or the headlight of the McLaren.

    I'm afraid you have indeed missed his point mate.

    I have loved GT fantasy tracks since day 1 (GT1) and am looking forward to some fantasy tracks in the latest installment of GT around the corner.

    However, the moment I read about the official FIA partnership I immediately had visions of being able to drive at tracks like Hungaroring, Yas Marina, Shanghai or even older tracks like Imola, Istanbul or Hockenheim.

    Throw in the announcement of the the upcoming weekend events along with the Nations and Manufacturers Cups has sort of left me a little confused as to why there hasn't been more new FIA tracks mentioned.

    Is Interlagos it?

    I guess some of us feel that PD isn't taking full advantage of this partnership with the FIA, especially since the majority of these games are heading more into the direction of 'Race Cars' over 'Street Cars.'

    I know one thing that's going to draw my attention over every aspect of the game, and it's going to be the photomode. It's a feature I look forward to the most in any game with impressive visuals.

    I think the point being raised by some isn't so much the fantasy cars — it's that the scales are massively balanced in their favour. Here's a list of the cars you can see being driven in the real world (not counting VGTs):

    2017 Acura NSX GT3
    2009 Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4T Sport
    2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition
    1987 Audi Quattro S1 Pikes Peak
    2011 Audi R18 TDI (Audi Sport Team Joest)
    2015 Audi R8 LMS (Audi Sport Team WRT)
    2015 Audi TTS Coupe
    2016 Audi TT Cup
    2011 Aston Martin One-77
    2012 Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3
    2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S
    2011 BMW Z4 GT3
    2014 BMW M4 Coupe
    2014 BMW M4 Coupe Safety Car
    2016 BMW M6 GT3
    2016 BMW M6 GT3 (Walkenhorst Motorsport)
    2013 Bugatti Veyron 16.4
    2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
    2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS

    2009 Ferrari 458 Italia
    2013 Ferrari 458 Italia GT3
    2013 Ferrari LaFerrari
    2015 Ford Focus ST
    2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback
    2016 Honda Civic Type R
    2017 Honda NSX
    2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track
    2015 Jaguar F-Type R
    2013 Lamborghini Veneno
    2015 Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4
    2015 Lamborghini Huracan GT3
    2014 Lexus RC-F
    2009 Lotus Evora
    2011 Lotus Elise
    2015 Mazda Roadster S (ND)
    2010 McLaren 12C
    2014 McLaren 650S Coupe
    2015 McLaren 650S GT3
    2014 Mercedes-AMG GT S
    2014 Mercedes-AMG GT S Safety Car
    2015 Mercedes-AMG GT3
    2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
    2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
    2013 Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG 4MATIC
    2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X Final Edition
    2012 Nissan GT-R
    2013 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 N24 Schulze Motorsport
    2015 Nissan GT-R LM Nismo
    2017 Nissan GT-R
    2010 Peugeot 908 HDi FAP – Team Peugeot Total
    2015 Peugeot 208 GTi
    2015 Peugeot RCZ GT line
    2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
    2011 Renault Megane R.S.
    2016 Renault Sport Clio
    2016 Renault Sport R.S.01
    2016 Renault Sport R.S.01 GT3
    2014 Subaru WRX STI Type S
    2012 Toyota TS030 Hybrid
    2015 Toyota 86 GT
    2015 Toyota SF-R
    2015 Toyota SF-R Racing Concept
    2014 Volkswagen Golf VII GTI

    Removing the two safety cars, and considering the near-identical M6 GT3s and R.S.01s, that's 62 cars. Knock another off if the 2012 GT-R is indeed absent now that the 2017 is in. That means there are roughly 2/3 as many real-world cars as there are fantasy ones. No other GT game has had even close to that sort of ratio — unless we count all of the Race Mods in GT1 and GT2 as fantasy cars, which I suppose is sort of accurate. :p

    This is a very, very different sort of car list than any previous GT game. It should not come as a surprise that some folks aren't as excited about it as others.

    As I always say, even a real car is just a fantasy inside your console...

    I find it incredible that Peugeot almost only exists in Gran Turismo! For that reason I am very happy. Seeing that beautiful RCZ in several variants I simply could 't be happier. I remember an interview when Peugeot's VisionGT car was released that Peugeot had chosen a partnership with PD because of their quality and innovation. It could be the reason why Forza, PCARS2 and AC have difficulty in getting the brand in. Peugeot could license a couple of cars but they wanted more. I simply wonder how far this partnership goes and what it means for the their models in the future? Will we see the new 508 coming to GT with a Gr." version included? Surely would be nice but it is very hard to find any decent information and confirmation on the models and what is included in the partnership. Will be interesting to see how Citroën is going to fill up the categories as well.

    PD seems to have negociated quite a lot of freedom of what they can do with the cars and that I find a valuable asset :tup:

    So much for adding nothing constructive :lol:

    I away like new things. I will have pcars, Forza and probably f12017 if my ich is that bad for a certain rl track. Fantasy tracks in GT have been some of my favorites. I hope this track and car list grow as time goes on.

    Yup , fantasy content in GT is one of the things that add to the game's charm. I love PD's tracks.

    Looking at a rally shot, I started wondering if they were planning to have every manufacturer represented in that class like in Gr.3. I started thinking of how cool it would be to have a rally NSX, but then realizing the Civic would probably be the more obvious choice. Then I came across the screenshot with the NSX on dirt and I am fully on-board with that!

    I believe there still possible chances classic cars will be in GTS. I mean why PD put the S1 Quattro and let it alone without friends/cars from same era to play with? From seeing that, I could see PD intention to add more cars (and hopefully tracks) after GTS is released. Maybe 500 cars in total is still in doubt, but there will be more added cars in GTS even it is less than 500 imo.

    Their fantasy tracks are nice always, but i'm not a fan of the concept cars. Anyways would love to see at least one drift specific track like Ebisu.

    Honestly, having fantasy tracks to learn and race on is a breath of fresh air. This stigma about Sim/Simcade containing only RL tracks needs to end. it does get tiring racing the same tracks on 4-5 different games (and not even from the same series)

    Personally I like racing on tracks that have a motorsport heritage. I want to race on tracks that I have watched my heroes and the legends of the sport race on over my 40 years of watching motorsport and that I've read about in books. Fantasy tracks do nothing for me.

    My opinion about the new original tracks is this: As long as they are fun to drive/race on, it's all good for me. Take Dragon Trails for example. A really nice, fast and flowing circuit. Perfect for Gr.3 cars in my opinion. The whole setting is great too. And from all the footage we have seen from the new Kyoto track (sadly we only saw the small circuit) looks fairl decent as well. Just look at the circuits the Super GT races on, especially Sugo. The setting is somewhat similar to it. Can't wait to to see footage of the big circuit.

    GTS has more than enough tracks to keep me busy for a long time. And I like the one's revealed so far.

    I would welcome more tracks as DLC down the road however. PD have to make tough decisions though, because you have alot of people complaining that GT classics are missing (Trial Mountain, High Speed Ring, etc., etc.), and also people complaining that real-life staples are missing (Spa, LeMans, Tsukuba, etc., etc.).

    Who will they try to please.

    NFS Shift 2 has many awesome tracks too which i havent seen in other games. Sadly it isn't the best out here.

    PD has put random cars that have nothing really similar "friends" or cars to race with in every title so far.
    I heard they also put a Veyron in with....

    Yeah, they do that. Maybe they won't this time, but that would be out of character for them.

    Okay, thanks. As for cars I agree it is randomly put. However my point is that there is one classic car seen in GTS, which there is possibilities for another classics coming in the future through updates or DLC. How long it will take or many cars will come is remain to be seen. I'm not expecting too much, but that is my own prediction nonetheless.
