    Well, the big news out of Teaser Tuesday this week seems to be that the Wendover's tailights have been reworked, but there's something else that nobody seems to have noticed.

    This is our first glimpse of a Soliad badge - albiet only the outline of one. It looks to be shield-shaped.

    Yes because every single old car needs a derby version. But really you are more likely to see most of them during derby than normally on a street so makes sense.

    It really annoys me that on the #TeaserTuesday post for this week, literally everyone was commenting "I like this but can we have [insert car type here]" Like, just be grateful for what you have.

    Listening to "Descent Into Cerberon" while watching the spinning Wendover. Trippy

    It's definitely half-Oldsmobile, half-Pontiac. The fact that they are clearly working on the Bolide and LeGran at the same time all but confirms my theory of an 80's update.

    It always happens. Including official YouTube videos. In fact, I'm absolutely shocked that the 2 subreddit posts about it haven't really seen any of this.

    It isn't really worth complaining about. The game has a very wide audience, there will always be people who are vocal about wanting something else, and I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with that, it just goes along with having such a wide variety of people interested in development. Of course when people stop being civil and respectful it's a problem, but that's not a problem limited to people liking what they like.

    They're going to post this instead of Final Countdown for the 80's update

    Definitely seems to be a combination of 1986 to 1991 GM H Body cars. Maybe a bit of C and K platforms allowing for a high end V8 model (with some body modifications).

    Anyone got a picture of the side profile? Make the D Pillar straight and add a landau top plus more chrome parts and bam you have yourself a FWD luxury coupe allowing for a new Luxury marque (like Cadillac).

    This car has a lot of potential, I hope it isn't wasted.

    Here's a 1988 Cadillac Coupe Deville as a real life example.

    The 98 coupe seems to have a similar body shape as the Wendover but with a more 90 degree C pillar and landau top.

    My god its stunning imo. It's like a all new car. They thew the 2012 render in the bin started over! By the looks of it.


    While the old one looked okay. The front was to narrow, I always wondered How will the Cooling system work?.

    The other thing it did not really look like a low end luxury car.

    Now it looks lovely, The kind of car you saw in the USA till 2009. As a first car or old persons car.


    The old taillights REALLY screamed Poor mans car. This now looks like a lincon ( love it ).


    I think this is the biggest change seen in a promised car indeed.


    About time we got a FWD coupe :)

    It's FWD not RWD so no drag variant.

    But I don't think many based around cars similar to the Wendover.

    I mean you could make a custom config. but anything official doesn't really make much sense.

    Agree, I will admit I wasn't one of those super excited about it originally. However seeing this new "render" is great. Genuinely like the look of it.

    I am hoping that since the update will probably include some form of remaster/update for the LeGran, we get front inner fenders for it. It's weird that they're just all open and exposed like this, with a huge gap behind the tire. Some GM cars of the time even had an inner fender/mudflap behind the tire, blocking the exterior colour from showing.

    (see how the exterior colour and cavernous gap is visible in this picture)
