What all new cars do you want to see in GT7?

Continuing my trend of wanting more 80s/90s sports cars in GT, here's another set of cars I'd be excited to see.

When IMSA came up with the GTS/GTS-1 formula in 1992 (Grand Touring Supreme, silhouette cars with template bodies, but constructed as lightweight carbon-fiber tub cars a la the GTP prototypes - as fast in a straight line as a GTP car, faster around most courses than the Camel Lights prototypes) there were a few prominent factory entries. The Cunningham Nissan 300ZXs, the Jack Roush Ford Mustangs, and the Rocketsports Racing Oldsmobile Cutlass Supremes:

As built by Rocketsports, these three cars had small-block V8s ranging from 6 to 6.5 liters displacement. They were driven during the 1992 and 1993 seasons by team principal Paul Gentilozzi, as well as Darin Brassfield, Scott Pruett, and Irv Hoerr, among others. I don't remember Rocketsports winning any endurance races with these cars, but they won plenty of the sprints.

At the end of the 1993 season, Gentilozzi was to go drive Nissans, so he sold the operation to Harry Brix/Brix Racing, a Camel Lights team. The plan with Brix was to continue on as the factory Olds team in IMSA, eventually running the new Aurora GTS-1 body that was in the works, but that wouldn't debut until 1996. But, the Northstar-based 4-liter twincam V8 the Aurora was supposed to run WAS ready by '95, so Brix dropped it in the Cutlass, and took the re-liveried Oldsmobiles racing.

The result of the Rocketsports chassis, Aurora V8, and Brix team management was a bunch of wins and the IMSA GTS-1 championship for Irv Hoerr in 1995. Irv did well in 1994 too, but finished third in the points behind Nisan drivers Johnny O'Connell and Steve Millen.

By 1996, the Aurora body was ready and was immediately plopped onto the former Cutlass chassis. IMO, one of the prettiest cars ever to run in a GT series.

The Aurora program was just as successful as the Cutlass, with several sprint race class wins, a class win at the 1996 24 Hours of Daytona (driven by the father/son team of Charles and Rob Morgan, as well as Joe Pezza, Irv Hoerr, and Jon Gooding) and a second IMSA GTS championship for Irv Hoerr. A Riley and Scott prototype running the same V8 as the Aurora would also take the overall win at Daytona that year.

From the late 1980s until the late 1990s, the Cutlass Supreme body was a stalwart American racing, seeing duty in NASCAR, Trans-Am, and IMSA competition, winning races and championships everywhere it went. The Brix efforts with the Cutlass and Aurora represented the last moments of motorsports glory for a storied marque before GM shuttered them, and I'd be thrilled to see them immortalized in a game like Gran Turismo.

The soul of gt isn't about the New cars..
Is about the old and the every day cars and the silly super hyper cars..
That you can drive it and tune it to race ..
The gt has lost his identity..
We are petrolheads because of gt..

The soul of gt isn't about the New cars..
Is about the old and the every day cars and the silly super hyper cars..

And this thread isn't about "new" cars either. It's about cars new to the Gran Turismo series, like it says in the very first post:
What all new cars do you want to see in GT7? (All new meaning never seen before in the franchise)
That could be a car from this year (or next) or a car from 1904. But it couldn't be the first-generation Opel Tigra, because that was in GT2.


As for the "soul of gt" being about "old" and "silly super hyper cars", the very first game must have missed out on that soul by a wide margin. There were no hypercars (silly, super, or otherwise) and the rest of the car list was almost exclusively vehicles under ten years old at the time (and mostly under four years old).

BMW e36 M3, I for a while had this as my favorite M3 generation. and I just want to complete the collection of M3 Coupes finally for GT. We had the e30, e46, and e92 in GT Sport. Time to complete it (not counting the new M3/M4 twins).
1639891216615.png



BMW M8 Coupe
1639891403574.png

Also, I would love to see the e31 850CSI come to GT. We had the 840ci in the past, but I think we should get the V12 version this time.

BMW M5 CS (F90) and every other M5 generation.
1639892706890.png


BMW M1 and the Pro Car version of course.
1639892798109.png


Other BMWs I would like. I won't be crying if they don't make it though. I'm happy already knowing the 3.0CSL (and possibly the racing version aswell) coming to GT7.
1. M635csi (e24)
2. M6 (e63)
3. M6 (f13), the GT3 version is in GT7, why not the road car?
4. M8 GTE
5. M4 (g82) & M4 GT3. Despite their beaver teeth grills, I still want the drive them.
6. 1M Coupe and M2 Coupe
7. Z4 sdrive35is (e89)
8. Z1
9. M135i (f21)

F355 F1 Berlinetta
1639893099617.png


Ferrari 575M Maranello or the 550.
1639892825320.png


The new J50 eventually. Since it's apparently a Japan-only model, it felt like a proper fit for GT.
1639892869384.png


I know the F8 Tributo is coming to GT7, but I still would love to have one of the 488s aswell, preferrably the Pista.
1639892999958.png


I already posted enough pictures here, so I'll just list the other Ferraris I want in GT7. Whether it's at launch of dlc, I don't mind waiting.
1. F50 GT
2. F40 Competizione
3. F355 Challenge
4. 360 Challenge Stradale or Modena, maybe both if I'm lucky.
5. 360 GTC Race Car
6. 575 GTS Race Car
7. F430 GT2
8. 365 GTB/4 Competizione
9. SF90 Stradale
10. 456GT
11. 612 Scaglietti

EDIT: Realistically, I probably see around 2, maybe 3 cars from either make in GT7 at launch. Maybe more would be in DLC, assuming PD is able to replicate the pace they had in GT Sport's 1st year of DLC.

3. SF90

And here are my preferred returning models:

1. SP1
2. 599
3. F430 Scuderia

Finally, here are my ideal Ferrari race car additions:

1. (Unnamed 2023 LMH machine)

Oh yeah, I forgot about the 488 GTE and GT3 Evo. GT7 if anything really should have those if Polyphony is serious about continuing Sport mode. Which would probably be dumb if they stopped now.

Anyway, my various new-to-series cars I want from Lamborghini.

Disclaimer, I should note that I don't expect any of the cars I list to be in GT7, not even as dlc. I just like making lists for fun.

Huracan GT3 Evo really is a must, because they added a R8 GT3 Evo.

3. M4 DTM (Hopefully licensing issues for DTM cars won't be a concern.)

Having a look at earlier posts. When you look down to around Kaz’ belly, there are a couple cars we’ve yet to see in the franchise. If this is their old storage, they’ve got the models and I wonder if they’ve ever got around to building them for future games. Also some others(BTCC Volvo estate, Nissan R381).
