    Disappointing.... So slow to dish out the Silvia's (No 14 or 15 so far). S13 in game doesn't drive too well and I expect the smaller engine 180sx to be inferior

    Would have been 10000000000x times happier if Sport was just GT6 with a graphics/sound boost

    After being loyal to the franchise since the beginning, I've lost enthusiasm

    PS5 version will be my last hope... If it's a let down gonna say my thanks to PD for the good times and move on to support likely the Assetto Corsa platform

    I've said for a long time that all PD had to do was slap Sport mode & Livery editor in to GT6 and it would have been a hit.

    The DBR9 would probably get slaughtered by the current GT500s. It's better off in Group 3 along with the McLaren F1.

    Although i agree this 500 is not a duplicate.

    But thats what they are doing.

    Smaller engine? The 180 SX will come with nearly 200 BHP. That's about 30 BHP more than the Silvia currently in the game.

    Wasn't sure if the 180sx is going to have the CA18 (assumed) or SR20 motor in game... I really tried to like the S13 (500+ tuning miles) but couldn't come to contentment >> I presume I'll fall to the same predicament with the 180sx, although I like the looks better

    All in all, in regards to GT Sport, it was the first GT that I didn't buy at release date; mainly because online reliant (no off line play) and limited tracks and cars. I had waited until they released update with FD3S RX7 to buy the game

    Sport is a Beta version at best (kinda like GTprologue)... With all the other racing sims out there that offer better sound, tuneability, etc., The next GT on PS5 better bring it!!!!

    It is actually a GT1 car. GTE didn't exist when it was racing. GTE cars are closer related to GT2 class than they are GT1.

    Regardless, it doesn't have a place in GTS but it is better suited in the Gr.3 class because the Gr.3 class already has a mixture of GT3, GTE, GT1 and GT2 machinery.

    The 180SX gained the SR20 whilst the S13 was still on sale.

    With so few cars, an added track would have been nice, but for a wind down to GT7 it's not bad. I much prefer the sleek DBR9, and missed the later Silvias.

    So with the next Gran Turismo just over the horizon, when can we start wishlisting?

    DBR9 and 180sx are a nice addition, but definitely the Fiat 500 is out of focus.

    A lot of GT6 premium cars waiting for the inclusion but they chose... that thing

    If that was to be the case we'd still be waiting for the game to be released. Or would you like the hundreds of PS2-era models to be ported over as-is again?

    The featured cars of this update aren't my cup of tea either, but it's better than them just cutting support and going radio-silent until it's time to promote GT7.

    Thank you for the new car additions. Please :bowdown:give us classic tracks already. I know I will not be purchasing a PS5 until it drops in price significantly. Yes I am aware pricing has not been officially announced. :yuck:

    Several years ago, roughly about the time GTS was revealed to not be a "classical" GT game.

    We don't need a wishlist scenario again

    Suggestions were already bad enough

    Check this out, three new cars to try at ALL the tracks. Two will be driven, for the first time, in GT Sport. Amazing!

    I wish the Fiat was swapped out but a nice update nonetheless

    Have some examples of badness? As far as I recall, what people moped about the most was lack of communication and taking many of the good ones to heart. The Livery Editor was one that was rather high on the list, and the lobbying effort paid off.

    If I wanted variety in Group 2, I'd want some DTM cars, especially since they're merged with GT500. Or even the old 4 liter V8 ones.

    Not to mention a variety of fictional machinery, including a Beetle that looks more the part of a DTM machine and a Peugeot RCZ with the engine in the middle. I figured the DBR9 would end up in Group 3 anyway.

    A part of me likes the 500 1.2 addition. I have a thing for small economy cars being thrown around tracks...

    I just posted this in the Online racing thread

    To add about the variety in GR.2, there are. Three cars from the real GT500 series. :p

    Is this the time I brought up this piece of GT500 jobber again?

    Because it was hopeless against actual GT500 cars even after handicaps.

    Okay, so PD have done it again. They have modelled the same model but different car.

    A Silvia and 180sx are very much the same car. Interior is expected to be identical. The fact that they actually updated the climate control and wheel to be correct is pretty impressive!

    One is the Abarth the other the Lounge.

    I thought it was PD modelling the same car but a different spec like they did with the Mini and a couple other cars.

    This 180SX has several other more than visual differences with the S13 Silvia K's Dias Selection. For one it uses an SR20DET instead of the CA18DET, it weighs a little more, has larger brakes, an LSD, amongst other changes.

    Wouldn't really call GT a sim. As far as sounds go, GT Sport is WAY better than we've had in the past. It's a huge step up, and I'm sure it will only get better. Anyone that bought GT Sport expecting a classic GT didn't do their homework before purchasing.
