    I think I’ll be fine with this update sitting on 4 million. I usually just drive street cars

    I’m with you on this one. As a die hard Gran Turiamo fan, I thought (incorrectly obvs.) that GTSport was going to dawn a new era. A new era of racing and with it a new approach to the car roster.

    Event series and their racing counter parts should’ve come first before showing off premium old title as well as old vehicle classics; I really couldn’t give a stuff about most of these average standard cars.

    GTLM, GTE, Blancpain, 24hrs of Spa/ Le Mans, Porsche Cup, Super Trevor etc are truly great racing events with great vehicles that I think PD missed the boat on to be frank and honest.

    I’m not a huge BMW fan but at the same time would love to drive that new M8 GTE, the same for the Ford GTE.

    I’ll keep playing of course but it does leave me disappointed.

    All the talk about how odd the lack of new racing cars is only adds to my suspicion they are keeping a new batch of Gr3 and Gr4 cars back for next years FIA seasons.

    With the glut of new or updated GTE and GT3 cars announced for the next season by the likes of Audi, Aston, Bentley and McLaren and a few strange long overdue omissions from GT Sport, such as the 488 GT3 and the Ford GTE, let us see what we might get before or during the start of next season. Introducing such new cars during the last season wouldn't have made much sense. Now it is over we still have a bit of time before the next one starts. PD would have to be crazy to let probably the most important race class in the game go stale after one season. Especially after a first season that proved a great success with the FIA Championships. If we don't get any by then, then PD will have made a big error and would have me worried.

    Hopefully Kunos and Simbin do not have exclusive or timed licenses on the new models of those class of race cars for their upcoming, officially licensed GT3 and GTE race titles, respectively. Fingers crossed.

    Didn't Kaz already say they were looking into adding new real life Gr.3 cars for existing brands that participated in the FIA championships? This is probably gonna be a thing for next season.

    I very much like the look of this. Got some great curves and it has, for me personally, the body design that would accommodate a diverse amount of livery styles that would suit it, regardless (within reason) of what the community creators come up with.
    Looking forward to getting hold of it ! :)

    Kinda reminds me of Mad Max (the original) in a way. Might look great with something that evokes the look of that film's cars perhaps!

    Anyone else think that Polyphony have been a bit suspiciously quiet about this update? I mean, the silhouettes dropped ages ago and as of right now the update trailer still hasn't dropped. We already know the cars, and a track, but I've got a slight suspicion that there "might" be something more.

    Of course, it's all speculation and tinfoil hats, but I'm just getting my thoughts out there. I've been wrong before. :D

    We already know major Sport Mode matchmaking changes are coming this month, so the bulk of the update will likely consist of rejigging the regional servers. https://www.gtplanet.net/major-changes-coming-to-gran-turismos-sport-mode-this-month/

    Good points and I'm with you here however, that's exactly why PD is putting more emphasis on these cars rather then the up to date cream of the crop Race Cars.. Simply put, those cars highlight PD's main advercary's products, like Assetto Corsa and Project Cars 2 where 24hrs of Spa/ Le Mans, Porsche Cup, Open Wheel etc. cars are the most abundant and emphasized.

    It seems like PD's focal point and gimmick is to the regular - citizen cars, as PD's got that market stocked up. Makes sense to me, especially with the gap we have prior to the next World Championships.

    I know Forza is supposed to be strong in this regard as well but I can't speak for it as I've never played it.

    For me, I'm at a point in this game where I don't get too excited on what cars or tracks we're going to be getting anymore.

    You can give me all the cars and tracks in the world but, I'd be far happier if we were to finally be able to adjust our Field of View (FOV) in any View Mode or to be able to adjust our seat and view point more in Cockpit View.

    Is the title of the latest update article correct? It's inferring Tokyo Expressway South Loop layout(s) will arrive on December 5th, but is it definite? Otherwise it may come at a later date in December. Just wondering :p

    The Tokyo layout was confirmed to be a part of the 'December Update' during its showing on the Fia Event livestream.

    Also, the article writers were there, at the event.

    Unless you want to continue your pedantry by saying 'oh maybe the update on December 5th won't be THE December Update' somehow (even though the new cars are confirmed for the date), I think we're done.

    Those are fair points about waiting and I hope so; you raise other cars and I completely agree, 488 and what about Bentley?

    Well then that would be a Christmas Update then, and as you quite well put yourself, would be called a Christmas Update. Not 'The December Update'.

    Your pedantry isn't just boring, it is incorrect and illogical too. And no, don't try to cover it up as a 'joke' by adding an emoticon in an edit lol. You've tried to be clever and a pedant and been shown to be incorrect.

    I hope you enjoy driving the new layout(s) tomorrow in the December update.

    What? The P1 GTR is at least also in Assetto Corsa, Project CARS 2 and Forza (several titles).

    A Christmas update might be the reason why they skipped October?

    I mentioned the Bentley, as an updated version was announced too late for it's inclusion in GT Sport last season. Also a legit Corvette GT3 or GTE and NSX GT3 wouldn't go amiss.

    So, for us petrolheads I think: The more they put cars in the game, the more we need, the more they fix the issues, the more we pretend. Thats true...

    I feel the exact same way about it, I mean it's the first update that we get the 7 cars plus the track all confirmed before the trailer drops and PD didn't release it yet. Suspicious...
    But I'll be honest, I'm not expecting more than these stuff (along with the sport mode changes).

    I know a lot of people will complain no matter what PD add to the game but I personally have enjoyed every single track and car that has been added and I’m looking forward to the Tokyo South and the cars that will accompany it, all in all thanks PD for the continued support.
