    1000 cars is insane.

  • theturk

    170 premium models – does that mean only 170 cars have fully modelled interior views?

  • theturk

    How many Skylines and Lancers are going to be added to make up a 1000? :sick:

  • easy

    if you managed to read properly, you would’ve noticed it actually reads 170 Premium NEW models

    emphasis on new 😉

  • Faheem

  • StigSmash

    LOL i laughed so hard reading that comment.

  • I heard that if they take one model of car and then have like a GT version or a version with a different engine or whatever that they count that as more than one car. Is that how it works? Because then you may find that there are a lot less car models and so on.

  • Ozzy

    finally the godfather of racers is back and wannabes like forza can only look up and aspire to what is the best racing franchise ever.

  • Faheem

    You’re not the first person to bring this up. Although I haven’t seen the car list yet there have been some comments on the web regarding just that… chances are there will be far less models than stated. 🙁
