My definition of a kit car:

 

A person or company who takes a normal road car, and replaces/upgrades certain componets, including (but not limited to) the engine, suspension, brakes, body panels, or the interior. The car's name may be altered slightly, or given an entirely new name by the tuner.

 

The car may be a one-off, or the upgrades can be applied to multiple examples of the original car.

Manufacture: Fiat
Model: X-1/9
Years: 1970s
The Fiat X-1/9 was my first auto purchase and I'd like to see them bring that model into the game. It was similar in size and design as the Pontiac Fiero, another car I'd like added. Both of these were nice little sports cars in their day although not powerful supercars they offered a feeling of supercar driving to the not so wealthy. Please bring these cars to the competition.

This looks awesome:

Weber F1 "FasterOne"

 

via autoevolution.com

 

"Weber announced technical specifications for it’s latest F1 sports car, also known as the FasterOne.

Engineers from the former BMW and Sauber Petronas Formula 1 team gathered up and built what appears to be the world’s fastest production car, having a power-to-weight ratio of 0.96 hp per kilogram. It weighs 1,250 kg and it is powered by a twin-turbo V10 engine with very large intercoolers that produces 1,200 hp and 1,250 Nm of torque.

It has an intelligent all-wheel drive system and carefully studied aerodynamics that enables it to reach 100 km/h from a stand still in just 2.5 seconds and 300km/h in 16.2 seconds. Also, it’s top speed is said to be over 400 km/h.

Pricing information is not available for now, but the Weber F1 FasterOne will be launched next month and it will be built only at order, so expect a six figure sum if you want to own one of these."

Manufacturer: Nissan

Car: 100NX (1.6 and 2.0 GTI)

Country: Japan

 

The Nissan 100NX, also called NX1600 / NX2000 in the US is a fantastic FF 2 door coupe, a main competitor of the Mazda MX-3, Honda CR-X del Sol and Toyota MR2, that competed succesfully in SCCA racing in the early-mid 90s.

Acknowledged for it's great handling and completely unique looks, with targa roof and sunk-in headlights, this car deserves to be included in GT5.  With a relatively light-weight chasis, the 2.0l version holds up very well against similar coupes of the era.

Also, they are great to drive! I own a 1.6l and it's the best fun I've ever had in a car.

 

Please vote for this car to be included, it's an unknown gem!13adb9b71a93a50efcd4722384672537-87292ef50e5f37a9cc2a8f6fa6ae6562.jpg

Re: The Essential GT Car List

Manufacturer: Oldsmobile

Model and Year: 1954 F-88 Convertible Concept

Class: Concept Car

Country of Origin: USA

 

1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible Concept Car

 

PD hasn't added many concept cars since about GT3. A few here and there, for sure, but there are still some beauties that are missing. This one was hidden away, literally, for a few decades.

 

This is the car that in 1954 could have 'killed' the Corvette. So, Chevrolet, being GM's big sales and profit division, campaigned to GM to 'kill' this car. When Chevy was coming out with its 6-cylinder sports car with its 2-speed 'powerglide' transmission and side curtains, here was a sports car from Olds with a big old V-8 engine with power windows. So, GM said, 'no' to Oldsmobile on building this car.

 

In 1954, the F-88 was a Motorama Dream Car, and was one of only two (or an unconfirmed possible three), ever created. After spending decades as a collection of parts stuffed into wooden crates, the F-88 was reassembled.

The F-88 seen here is literally the only car left of its kind and was sold to John and Maureen Hendricks (Discovery Communications founder) at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, for $3,240,000.

This acquisition made automotive history and is in the cornerstone of the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum, in its own special room on a rotating display, worthy of the F-88, and this car seems worthy of being in GT.

I love the Shelby and also the ford and the Mustang is the perfect fusion of these.

The Mustangs are the American's cars history and for me Gran Turismo have to add at the car list  the Shelby Mustang.

Be interesting to take the entire list of 'Essential' cars, count them up, then, given PD's current modeling speed, predict by what millenium they would all be done by!

 

I predict there will be no gasoline left by the time PD finish, and ALL racing will be done virtually!
