    Imagine Kaz dropping a teaser with Eau Rouge (Raidillon actually), seen from the bottom curb, blurred by a water droplet...

    No. You're probably thinking of the Dodge Copperhead which was just called the Dodge Concept car.

    Or the Chrysler Phaeton.

    The Prowler debuted in Gran Turismo 4.

    The Concept Car was a Chrysler IIRC and it was definately a car that looked very, very similar to the Prowler but I think the Prowler had not been released by Chrysler yet, hence the name Concept Car. It was definately in GTI & GTII


    Edit: According to the info I found you are correct. I could swear that I almost always used a very light weight Chrysler or Dodge (Plymouth?) that had a v6 engine. It was purple, a roadster, and had those small front motorcycle fenders that turn with the tires on the front. Now I am going to have to drag out my old Playstation and the original Gran Turismo and hope I can find my memory card so I can see what I was driving. Old age sucks!!!

    Since PD has been adding more cars from the 1950's in the recent months, I think it's safe to say that we might get one or two the next update. Most of which they've been adding have been new to the series such as the D-Type, 356, and the DB3S so the trend might continue with some more of the Pebble Beach winners showing up. The Abarth Biposto Bertone has been the only returning car from Gran Turismo 6.

    List of 1950's cars in GT6:
    - Abarth 1500 Biposto Bertone B.A.T 1 '52 Premium
    - BMW 507 '57 Premium
    - Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (C1) '54 Standard
    - Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Racer Concept '59 Premium
    - Citroën 2cv Type A '54 Standard
    - Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupé '54 Premium
    - Subaru 360 '58 Standard

    From this list, I see the chances of the 507 and or the 300 SL returning very likely for a few reasons. They both are premium cars in GT6 and they both have their modern day counterparts already in GT Sport (BMW Z8 and Mercedes SLS).
    As for the rest, the standard cars are less likely as always but of which I think the C1 Corvette has the biggest chance because the C2 and C3 Corvettes have already been added to the game. I could only see the 2cv and the 360 come back mainly for the reason Subaru and Citroën currently don't have any "classic" cars in the roster.

    I'd see the Subaru comeback because of the kei cars, 500 and Mini '65

    Unless I'm mistaken, haven't all of the formerly standard cars added to GT Sport been Japanese? If that's the case, then the Subaru 360 '58 has a very good shot of getting a premium facelift.

    Off the top of my head the ‘61 Jaguar was previously standard. There may be more.

    Is the original leak speculating on the cars & tracks. Or does their data indicate these additions are coming? I understand it could be more difficult to predict rain. The code may already show it’s implementation. But we don’t know,l when it will be released to the public.

    You're right about the E-Type. I still think Japanese standards have a far greater shot at being upgraded to premium since there seem to be more examples compared to their non-Japanese counterparts:

    '65 Toyota Sports 800
    '66 Honda S800
    '92 Honda NSX Type R
    '98 Honda Civic Type R
    '98 Honda Integra Type R
    '83 Toyota Sprinter Trueno
    '91 Honda Beat
    '92 Nissan R92CP Race Car
    '97 Toyota Supra
    '97 Toyota MR-2
    '98 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 22B

    I keep forgetting about the '91 NSX being the premium in GT5/GT6.

    Let's see if Kaz works in a logical way (& they were able to negotiate on a reasonable price with the track management)... Crossing fingers...

    Well if this a pattern that continues then I guess the 360 may have a better chance as well since they added the S800 and the Sports 800.

    My guesses for standard JDM classics making the jump to premium:

    Subaru 360 '58
    Nissan SKYLINE 1500Deluxe (S50D-1) '63
    Mazda Cosmo Sport (L10B) '68

    And less likely given that Isuzu is currently not featured in GTS:

    Isuzu 117 COUPE '68

    I think he specifically means modern race cars, at least that's what his post history in recent update threads seems to suggest.

    I know you've gotta take into account modeling time and such but it's getting a bit ridiculous now


    NFS gets a Polestar 1 and we get a Toyota Tundra, you love to see it!!1!11!

    NFS gets a polestar with a scaffolding tower on it and the same marketing as Far Cry: New Dawn

    Don't really feel too left out, to be honest.

    Personally I'd like a Caterham, great for racing.

    Oof, good point actually...

    Ignoring the...questionable modifications it's still a pretty nice car that'd be a nice addition to the game.

    I'd love to see a Caterham too but I'm not confident PD will provide

    I've thought about the Cosmo making a return for sure. The Wankel event is ripe for that no doubt. Also, would it be interesting PD were to model the '68 as in 1968 Cosmo ran in the "84 Hours of Nurburgring":

    I wonder if there will ever be a Datsun category? Fugu Z is technically a Datsun.

    Only because I dislike the Fairlady and Bluebird names. :lol:

    All this talk about the Mazda Cosmo and the other Japanese classics has got me excited. I adore the Cosmo so I’d be thrilled to see it return in super-premium form.

    However... I want to see this more than anything:

    I still remember the day I finally amassed 320,000 credits to buy this beauty in GT4. Something about it just fascinated my 5 year old self.
