    In my personal opinion, these are, hands-down, the Best-looking and the Worst-looking standard cars in the entire game:
    BEST-LOOKING STANDARD: Ford RS200 Rally Car '85
    [​IMG]

    The model is very smooth and the decals are crystal-clear.

    WORST-LOOKING STANDARD: Hommell Berlinette
    [​IMG]

    Just look at the tail-lamp housings on this thing! And the rest of the car doesn't look much better. This car is definitely in the biggest need of a premium upgrade come GT7.

    Which proves why I haven't played GT6 in a while :)

    I forgot which cars are or aren't paintable.

    I don't mind the Standards (though I hope they don't appear in GT7), even with the zoomed in jag-fest that exists. With that said, they should have cleaned those up before sticking them in the GT6.

    Back in 2005 we would have said "look at the detail!"

    Other than the Swedish rally logo, the decals are FAR better than most standards in the game. Especially the Pirelli, Shell and Bilstein logos.

    The C4 ZR-1 is a great car to have in GT6, i am spending a lot of time driving it on this track that i made. Tuned but with a stock exhaust and transmission, makes a beautiful sound above 6000 rpm.

    I actually prefer the other C4 in GT6 for its 100 kg lighter weight, but the ZR-1 is the better car when modded up and tuned.

    At first I didn't recognise what on earth that was with the lights up. Never paid that car any attention whatsoever (except in GT3 when it was my main rival in so many races)

    I got bored at work today and read the whole 133 page story of the Standard gt6 car on this thread.
    Some ups, and downs, overall an 8/10. Mikhial K seems to be popular for those comparison pics. Would love to see more of that

    Sometimes I think how much it's a shame that some of the most iconic cars, like the Charger, in GT6 are left standard. Meanwhile kei cars and even duplicates, like the 1989&1991 Miatas, received the premium upgrade.

    Word of advice to PD: make better decisions when you choose cars to get the premium treatment. Think about the cars people really want to see premium as a a whole, like this Charger, the Supra, and a few others

    I definitely dig what your saying, but in the end at least we can drive them. I'm praying in GT7 a lot of these standards get converted to premium. I might be one of the few though that want to see all these cars in GT7, hopefully if they bring the standards over they clean them up dramatically. Jersey in the house!:cheers:

    I can't imagine they would port them over as-is onto the PS4. That would be absolutely shameful.

    Yes, driving these standards in GT6 is definitely better than not having them at all. The experience driving a standard car though, it's just not the same as driving a premium car.
    Hate to burst your bubble but last year, Kaz did say there would still be standard quality cars in GT, and a few (how much is a few?) will become premium.

    Keep in mind that they have to get an example of the car in its STOCK form to get scans of for the rendering process. With the Charger coming from America, and stock-level Supras becoming harder and harder to come by, it'll be hard for polyphony to find a collector with the cars needed.

    So how are every other car game developer able to get these cars accurately represented in their games?

    Factories probable have those cars in stock form, and they are partner with PD. PD dont go from houce to houce and ask owner to picture their car. I think that factory have minimum one car that stays in.

    Simply put, because they are considered slow. When tuned however, they can give fun not found in faster cars. ;)

    Gt is game about all cars not just fast super cars. Am enjoying to drive, slow cars like Nissan Micra, WW Lupo, Fiat Punto. Also wagon cars like Impreza, Audi RS6 avant. And that is what I like in GT, game have every day cars in game not just 300+ km/h cars.

    Also, some of the slower cars, such as Honda Civic and Mini Cooper, are considered popular. ;)

    What do you mean "even duplicates"? Would you prefer it if they just upgraded one of them and left the other with their old low-res models, even though the bodies are exactly the same?

    I didn't say that all Kei cars aren't worthy of an upgrade.

    Kei like the Honda Beat, Suzuki Alto RS-Z, and the Toyota Sports 800 are definitely worthy of premium. They have some history and are fun to drive, and the Alto hasn't been updated since GT3. Kei cars like the Daihatsu Moves, the Honda Today and Mitsubishi Minica don't have as much thrill as the other ones and are less worthy of a premium upgrade.
