    We have literally 0 reason to even think about that.

    There's a chance an ai car gets spawned that runs from you if you're driving a police vehicle.
    Probably refers to this or the ai police chasing the player.

    An I6 is very long, so it would be difficult to fit it transversely. Fitting it longitudinally would either stretch the wheelbase, making the car unresponsive (in a mid engine layout), or stretch the overhang and mess up the weight distribution. The Audi quattro, with its front longitudinal I5, had such poor weight distribution that it suffered extreme understeer, even when everything possible was moved to the trunk in the S1 version.

    Mounting an Inline-6 transversely in the middle would explain the super wide rear fenders though! Plus, it would be easier to cool the Twin-Turbos down since they're at the same place, which wouldn't be the case with the 2.7 Twin-Turbo V6 we previously mentioned!

    An inline 6 is also heavy though, the Castrol JGTC Supra used the Celica's inline 4 for that reason

    Also Renault didn't need an inline 6 to throw super wide fenders on the 5 Turbo :)

    And that was longitudinal. Wide fenders aren't for wide engines- they don't help with that. They are for massive tires.

    This hurts my head.

    The most logical reason for the wide quarter panels is obviously to fit a wider tire and possibly longer travel suspension or an entirely different suspension setup (double wishbone).

    The location of the turbos doesn't really have an effect on cooling. Turbos are cooled by either oil or coolant from the engine. The air coming out of the turbos is cooled by an intercooler, or likely two intercoolers in the case of this car (one in each quarter panel vent). Again, the location of the turbos doesn't have a big impact on this either. It just changes the intricacy of the cold side piping.

    Not really, depends on the material of the components. Titanium is lighter than both aluminium and iron! :p
    Didn't know that about the Supra JGTC.
    Yep, true this one about the 5 Turbo fenders! But Renault didn't feel obliged to put an Inline-4 on the Clio V6 later on! ;)

    Didn't the JGTC Supra use a V8?

    I thought it used the 2JZ, tbh...

    Wider tires are certainly the main reason for the super wide fenders, it's just that ok, the whole packaging includes the engine too and I thought of a very makeshift layout, hehe!
    I know how turbos are cooled down, don't get me wrong, I just thought of them in their red hot state during full throttle and anti-lag.

    Taken from Wikipedia:
    "first appearing in 1994 [...] with a four-cylinder 2.1 liter 4T-GTE"
    "by the late 1990s, the Supra used a developed version of the 3SG"
    "by the early 2000s [...] the Supra moved to the 3UZ-FE V8 engine"

    Since there has been a lot of discussion about future vehicle remasters, I made this list of past updates to vehicles to help with the speculation. I'm totally posting here because I realized there's nowhere else for me to post this other than Reddit tho.

    Wow, so the 86' Pessima, Miramar and Moonhawk haven't been touched for 6 years now... Definitely the #1 priority for me

    They have recieved minor updates over the years (like the Donk Moonhawk added recently), I only counted more major improvements and remodels of the base cars. If I included every single update, the chart would be pretty much filled up which would defeat its point. But I agree, all of those cars could use more love.

    I won’t argue that they aren’t in dire need of a remaster, but concerning your graph, didn’t the ‘88 Pessima, Miramar and Moonhawk all receive a slight remodel a few years ago?
    On the other hand, IIRC cars like the Barstow, Burnside and ETK I-series never got model updates at all.
