Project-CARS

Guys, I have a confession to make: I haven’t really been keeping up with news on Project CARS, for many months now. And for once, it’s not because of my unrelenting ability to put the minimal effort forward in anything that I do in life, as I coin new levels of laziness. It’s because when it comes to games like this, games that I do actually want to try my hand at, I do actually enjoy having a fresh experience and keeping news of it off my grid. But here’s something that I had to know about the game: The list of cars inside of it. And baby, it looks like Project CARS has all of them.

And I’m not kidding. Here’s the full list of vehicles from Slightly Mad Studios, which reads like petrol porn:

  • Alpine A450

            “Ooooo… Datsun… So shiny!” —–> That’s pretty much what I think the GT developers think…

            I’m a bit GT fan, don’t get me wrong. Looking forward to GT7, whenever that may arrive. But saying you have over 1000 cars, when 900 of those are actually just variations of Mazdas, Datsuns and Hondas doesn’t really count!

    No Ferraris and no Porsches. 🙁 Thanks EA for f$%&ing up and being stingy idjits with the Porsche licensing once again! Not sure what’s Ferrari’s excuse… Hmmm… Gotta admit – I am quite disappointed they aren’t in there.

    But other than that, it’s a great, focused list. None of the 1001 Mazdas, Nissans, etc. that GT famously pads its games with.

      ferrari are notoriously stingy with their cars in games.
      you hardly ever see them in games cus ferrari always say no.

      no porsche is curious though, they are usually quite enthusiastic about games.

        Porsche signed a deal with EA to have their cars exclusively in the Need for Speed game some something like eternity. So nobody else can have a Porsche in their games.

        They do have the RUF, which is basically cars built on a Porsche chassis.

    I wonder if they’ll have realistic modelling of the old Fords, for instance, if you use the escort, it has to break down at least four times before you go around the last corner of the first lap?

    Would have been awesome to include cars you can locally own and drive. Reason? To see what your car is capable of with tuning etc. I dont expect every single car out there, but at least the common popular ones.

      Yea. That is nice. GT has my first car, so it’s always one of the cars that I HAVE to own. Forza also has one of the cars I’ve owned.
      I love getting those just for comparison and because.

      • CypherGate

        May 4, 2015 at 09:14

        Exactly. Thats why I enjoyed Forza and GT so much cause you dont have to always choose the exotics and high performance sport cars you would never be able to own. Sometimes its just fun driving a car that you own, but upgraded to the point you cant in real life and to see the performance difference is somehow just awesome.

      thats what NFS underground is for. dropping top tier cars with your Nissan.
      or, was for. those cars are perhaps a little dated now.
      its also what fast & furios was for, befor it went all hollywood.

      but for a GT / circuit racer, its a little less relevant.

        Thats also true yes, but it would have been nice to have a kind of car simulation game with the cars u tend to see on the road. Not to say they should put in a 97 Honda 150i Honda Civic, but even The type R version like they did in GT etc or say the newer Polo version from 2010 upwards or the GTi’s from that year upwards. I know Project Cars is more GT Circuit racing. From the beginning it seemed to me that this game was going to be about the love of cars in general meaning variety. I didnt think it would be so focused just on track bred cars. Im still going to buy and play this one though cause it looks brilliant.

          all their focus on gt and circuit racing has lost my interest entirely.
          i remember one of the first trailers was of a mclaren driving on a road leading up to a lighthouse, views were spectacular and everything was just gorgeous, i was totally in love then, now though, meh.

            I totally agree, but we wont get Forza or GT on PC so Im kinda just getting it to play it on PC. When I do eventually get a new console (When that prices drops A LOT more) then ill look at getting Forza 6 or something.

            May 4, 2015 at 10:34

            forza almost convinced me to get the xbone.
            its still trying to convince me…
            the only thing stopping me: is forza really worth R5500 + game titles?

          • CypherGate

            May 4, 2015 at 10:43

            Exactly. What is holding me back from buying an xbone is the fact that it still costs too much for me. R5500 + the game is a bit much. Also Forza 5’s in-app purchasing helped secure my feeling not to buy it yet thats why im waiting on Forza 6. Hopefully their in-app purchasing is handled better to not force you to buy packs of cars that will help you further in the game. Its annoying. If they can drop the price to say…. R4500 or even R4000 then i would definitely look at getting one.

    I was really expecting a longer list than that. Especially with how long this has been in development.

    However I heard there’s over 100 tracks included which is insane (hope they’re not including tracks in reverse). Should rename to Project Tracks! 🙂

      100 tracks, if you include duplicates of tracks being driven backwards, with one corner missing or an extra tree.
      atleast, thats what the car list makes me think, with all the GT versions of the same cars making up the bulk of the list.

      35 actual tracks. With many variations of each taking it up to around 100 different layouts.

      But, with 35 actual track locations, it’s still more than any other racing game out there (and I’m including GT and Forza in that list). Yup, that’s how much ‘variations’ come into play in most racing games.

    GT and circuit cars. zZzZz…
    and there are only like, 5 cars on that list, but there are 5 different versions of each car…

    the list of cars isnt that impressive.
    even GRID 2 had a more impressive car list.

    this games content is looking more and more boring, the closer we get to release date.
    by the time it launches, all its going to have is its visuals.

    Ehh really ton of cars? Listen i been waiting like everyone else for years for this, and the list is a bit disappointing. But hey At least its better then the crap selection in The Crew. Sorry but Gran Turismo 5 had a ton of cars, hello trophy for owning 1000 cars, check. TDU 2 had more cars as well. Sorry But what kind of car game doesnt have Lambo’s and Ferrari’s. Still cant wait for PCars but car selection is a bit, weak.
