    I can assure you that it takes significantly longer than two weeks to make a vehicle to our standards. If it only took two weeks to make a vehicle then we would have an awful lot more vehicles in the game and I would be having a lot fewer headaches about whether or not we're keeping to our schedule.

    I think a lot of the misconceptions the community (and myself I will admit) regarding the game are caused by the fact that the long term plans for the game really haven't been communicated with the community. This discrepancy is very odd, as the team has been doing a relatively good job in regards to communication of short term plans, but when it comes to long term plans we really haven't heard anything substantial for years. Given how long this game has been in development (approaching eight years from the first ever trailer, which is extremely long for a video game), a lot of us are really unsure as to what the plans are in the long term. It would be really great to see a sequel to this, as it's approaching four years old and a lot has changed, or even some sort of a long term roadmap (it would significantly improve communication, however it might be a bit too restrictive for the fluid nature of this game's development). If the communication of long term plans for the game is addressed, the community would be able to understand what the development team's vision is for this project in the long term, and thus allow us to understand why things are being done the way they are being done and why certain projects are taking so long. As of now there's definitely a massive gap in communication, and it's extremely frustrating having bought this game in 2015 expecting some sort of a complete version in the next few years and it now being 2020 with no end in sight and communication as to the long term plan being basically non-existent.

    Woah woah woah! Why is this thread getting so heated up? they're a small team of developers (all of which have lifes to live) and i am sure they are doing everything they can to bring us high quality updates.
    I mean, seriously, just calm down! When the update is ready. its ready.

    PS: i am not trying to act like "the voice of reason" here, and i am not trying to offend anyone. but its just that i really dont like where this is going with all the "UhH ReLeAsE CaR PlEaSe!" or "WhY Is ThIs TaKiNg So LoNg?!?111! UHHHH!" Making an update for a game like this is NOT an easy nor fast process.

    I'm just saying this, but to avoid all this you probably should've just put it in the game with nothing prior so none of this happened and everyone is happy.

    This appears to be another situation where the "shushing" is louder than what is being "shushed"... The community that is only on Youtube/Steam/Reddit will always rush everything, and once in awhile it'll spill over on here... People are generally a bit more antsy due to recent circumstances, but it isn't that bad...

    And yeah, we really need an Over the Horizon 2... The game has changed so much since then and we really don't know what's going on with long term goals at all anymore.

    The car will be released in the upcoming update, which will probably be in the next few weeks.

    I am seriously concerned by the whole "release car or don't talk about it" attitude I've been seeing from various community members as of late. As stated above, I really would like to see improved communication, especially in the long term, but if people seem to take communication the wrong way then the devs will probably hold off on revealing future plans, which would only make things worse. Just let the devs show off what they're working on and wait "until it's ready".

    Sounds really promising, seems like a fun car to throw around in the corners.
    Hopefully there will be a lot of configurations. I love making awful cars, and I can imagine this car in a ''cross'' configuration similar to the Focus Active with a base model gutless petrol 1.0 CVT with FWD.

    I didn't mean it like that, I just said that to avoid all the toxicity that has been happening.

    Patience is a virtue slowly disappearing from the world.

    Folks. Releasing the Vivace now as it is would be like eating your food as soon as they look somewhat finished, but nonetheless needs a bit more time to be really delicious and awesome. You wouldn't do that either, would you? They're not ready yet.

    I know I'm sounding selfish and impatient, but I just have one honest and respectful question:
    Do you think the car will be ready by sometime in April? I can easily wait that long at this point, this car looks like it will have so much to offer.
    Side-note: the i5 engine sounds incredible, I hope it doesn't get changed.

    All this impatience really reminds me of pre-release Alan Wake, although maybe not that bad

    Oh I can wait, as long as the car doesn't literally take multiple years to come out, but I doubt that with the team's skills. Y'know it kinda seems a bit toxic here tbh. Someone asks anything about the release only to be shot down by multiple people telling them to shut up, suck it up, and wait.

    So hyped for that car, and its also taking a bit longer because they will surely not only bring this new car into the game for the next update. I am sure that they are also going to put something else in this update like a reworked/updated version of other cars etc...

    Progress is pulling along really fast, and I like it!

    I have one question: How does the interior look so far?

    considering this will likely have a rear fender slot like the sunburst, I'll be interested to see if they make use of that by adding some WRC style flares?
