    I used to collect retro cars magazine(UK). My '83 Corona made it into Reader's Rides years ago. One of the staff members had/has a Project Renault 8. I'm thinking of changing the color to that deep red/maroon.

    There needs to be fast club circuits for small cars like the R8 Gordini. Putting around at Tsukuba is pedestrian compared with Thruxton or Goodwood.

    I agree. I just got done doing 15 around Oulton Park Fosters in an Escort RS1600 RX and it was great fun. Small cars can be fun if they did it right.

    True. If Tokyo EXpressway Outer Loops were wider, those are the closest we get to those old school fast circuits. Brands is another, but still can't compare to the mentioned above.

    Unfortunately the closest equivalent in the game is actually Tokyo Central, but the corners are all blind and the walls expose the shortcomings of the penalty and collision model.

    That's the one! Good to know my memory is not going just yet :lol: Gran Turismo 2 actually had the '83 and '85 model, but I don't think it has High Sonic Toning either.

    I have a feeling you might be waiting a lit bit longer for these cars as there is no Kaz teasers yet and also we are coming up to the Easter weekend

    Yup, High Sonic Toning is not available in the final version of that game.
    But it was available in the beta version, and someone had restored that color in the final version, as one of mod contents that is called "Gran Turismo 2 Plus".

    If it takes a long time, the circuit will most definitely be Spa, because Spa is one big and expensive boi...

    No. It's not too late for a silhouette teaser if these cars are coming this month but we have no idea when the cars will come.

    Any time between now and Soon.

    I really have no idea. Might not get one this month.

    I can't wait for these cars to drop. I'm really hoping we get them before the end of the month. I'm eager to run an AE86 lobby. A Swift vs. Fit event would be tits in a blanket too.

    If I had to think of next classic muscle car returining, it would have to be the 1969 Camaro Z28 since we already have both of the classic Mustangs back and the Dodge Challenger.

    I'm not sure if other cars will be included in this batch of leaked vehicles but I think this is likely.

    You never know with PD but it seems a little early for a tease. I would think they’ll get the Easter weekend over with and reveal something next week.

    The Porsche 962C will be a fantastic addition to the roster. I will certainly try the Endurance race at Circuit de Sainte-Croix C II with it. Really enjoy that race but the Le Mans event will have to be first.

    Does the upcoming 962 C have a PDK?

    Well its an 80s racecar so I don't think so.

    Edit: Wait a minute, Porsche did have PDK 962s racing around in 1986.

    Actually the PDK transmission started out on Derek Bell’s 962 in the 80’s. It was heavy, unreliable, and couldn’t handle the 1000km races. But it was effectively a sequential transmission before they were a thing, and laid the foundation for what Porsche uses today.

    As for the 962C, I’m pretty sure those all used the dog-leg 5 speed manuals, so I would expect that.
