    I can definitely support the possible idea of Lotus returning to GT Sport.

    It's totally not because of my name, noooo...

    Hypothetical: If Lotus did return to GTS, would the F1500T-A be renamed to the 97T and put in the Lotus dealership? Would there be a duplicate of it in the Lotus dealership, or would nothing change at all?

    I do hope they come back. After seeing the Elise '11 was supposed to be in the game, it made me want to see Lotus coming back even more.

    Had a lot of fun driving the car back in GT6.

    Isn't the reason they're not in the game essentially them trying to pull a Spa? Forgot where I read this, but I remember someone saying that they saw PD going and hiked the price.

    I think the specs would be slightly different but I knew Lotus would return, but when...
    The track I would love to come is between Zolder or Road America

    The Esprit V8 is a car that's sorely missed, its really good in GT6

    I hope they make a return, Lotus cars are always great drives.
    I'd love to see the 98 Esprit instead of the 02, that back end is just prettier to me

    I’m not surprised GT haven’t made custom GT3 and GT4 cars for all manufactures. It’s be cool to see all makers compete in on FIA. It would be weird considering they are all newer cars so it would be harder for DeTomaso for example. But it’s also weird both custom VW don’t have the base on game so why have a Viper, or a Corvette gr.4 instead of something that makes more sense like a challenger, or a Malibu or impala

    The Lotus 97T would most likely be a standalone car as the F1500-T isn't 100% the same car. That said, there's a whole range of lotus race and road cars that would compliment GTSport

    I think the most appropriate Chevy for Gr.4 would be the Camaro.

    I would love to see a Gr.4 Evora.

    The Lotus Elise 111R 2004 is my favourite car of all time, & has been ever since I fell in love with it in Gran Turismo 4. From GT5 Prologue onwards, it produced some of the greatest online racing I've ever experienced, & I really love the handling especially the way the car rotates (which aspect GT games always nailed; Assetto Corsa on PS4 fails miserably in this area). I can only dream of owning one in real life, so would dearly love to have it back in GT Sport again.

    Lotus & PD; shake hands & make up already!


    :cheers:

    Lotus hoping to be back in the game would suggest that PD isn't agreeing to the licensing terms, and not the other way around. Possibly another Spa situation.

    If I remember right, the weight distribution of that Lotus was something like 35/65... which makes me miss the ‘ Weight Ballast’ tuning ability GT5/GT6 had. You could radically change a cars handling with that, most often, improve it.

    IMHO, the handling in that car was perfect already, & just how I like it. Plus, I hardly ever tuned in past GT games, as I much preferred racing in Tuning Prohibited lobbies. I can only remember entering a tuning lobby twice in GT5, & never did in GT6. Most of my racing was done in Shuffle & Spec lobbies back then.

    Speaking of Geely, would be nice to have this in Gr.4, that face can scare anyone out of the way.

    Lynk&Co would make sense for GTS (or any racing game, really) since they’re all about those millennials.

    After Lotus though, of course.
