    Well, maybe they didn't like that idea as much and had a rethink. A..... 7 year long.... rethink...

    Remake of the Ford GT90 or a redesigned, re-imagining of the Ford Indigo Concept Car could be fun :D.

    I honestly think that this is an interesting idea. After all, Ford does love to be promoted in racing games such as Forza.

    Where are these “Fordzilla” teams competing, anyway? Forza?

    What ever happened to the designed by the GTPlanet community car? Send that one in.

    I'll design one that can race in GT4, GT3, GTE, LMP/Hypercar, Indy car, (V8)Supercar and WRC. All with interchangeable and removable parts that can be done quicker than changing an Audi R8 transmission from Le Mans 2000. ;):sly:

    Looking at their Twitter it’s mainly Forza and GT.

    Real talk: The first AAA title to feature early '70s pro stocks (or modifications to turn regular Pintos, Mavericks, Camaros, Vegas, 'Cudas, etc. into reasonably accurate replicas) will get my money.

    And then they turn it into an all-electric CUV.

    Well. In their defense, the Lexus LFA took 10 years, just because someone said "let's carbon fiber it" lol

    Make the Ford Indigo or GT90 a commercial release.
    Or just give us a GT40 remake with a big fat V8 not the V6 and race it at Le Mans :gtpflag:

    So it's gonna be a cyan and magenta batmobile with 4k res and ray tracing?

    I wouldn't ask gamers to design a game, let alone a car.

    Cool. I propose forced software patches and OS updates at least weekly. These will be a minimum of 200GB and will take three hours to install. You will be unable to use the vehicle until updates are complete.

    To be fair, if you manage to get in a rear-end collision while on a drag strip, you probably have far greater problems.

    Also, you can only tune into one radio station and won't be able to adjust the seat unless you buy the season pass DLC that unlocks the rest of the cabin controls after 6 months.
