    I was reading up on the latest jeuxvideo.fr "news", when I noticed this unusual batch of screenshots from VideoGamesZone.de. From what I can infer, they were uploaded there by user David Martin along with other GT5 shots from the E3 trailer. I don't recall seeing them anywhere else, and their lack of visual quality raises questions in my mind. With that said, however, you'll notice shots of the third-gen Mazda MX-5 (which, if I recall correctly, has not been in any GT game before), and another shot of 9 cars on track at what looks like Monaco (too many cars for GT4 on a track that's not in GT5 Prologue). If these are GT5 shots, though, why is the quality so low, and where the heck did "David Martin" find them?

    There's a chance I have mixed up my facts, or these just slipped under my radar. Hopefully, you guys can clear things up. Take a look:

    A few quality cars to add to the certainty list. Nice find.
    But why a race that only includes Mazda MX-5s?

    This seriously can't be GT5...GT3 maybe?

    GT has always included MX-5 only races. Roadster Endurance for example.

    As Jordan indicates, that MX-5 wasn't in GT3.

    They're very clearly GT4 shots (the convertible driver is the GT4 Motor-Carriage/Model T driver) but, as Jordan says, too "busy" to be GT4 in-game.

    That said, I recall seeing the NC MX-5 images before. It's not a forgotten part of the old Vision GT video (which everyone only remembers for the Motegi Speedway pit scene) is it?

    Excellent! Thanks guys, I'll close, rename, and move this thread to the appropriate forum so as not to confuse anyone.
