    No, I am!

    And it begins, the great "Who's more x about y" debate.

    To be honest, I was not very excited about any of the upcoming cars, even the Nissan GTR, but I'm really into the 86. I'm fairly sure that after it releases, the only thing I'll be doing is modding the base to make custom versions of it (Unless Kunos releases touge tuned cars, turbo'd versions etc.) and driving it. I'm fairly sure that the 86 will become the new Lotus Elise for me, that one car in which I always place top 20 on the scoreboard on times and love driving so much.

    The idea of official AE86's ranging from "Bone stock" to "Light tuned" to "Heavy tuned, under 900kg" to "Drift spec, under 800kg" to "Race car, basically an N2" would be amazing. Just a stock 86 would do for now, even if it's LHD. As long as the model and sounds are up to par.

    For me it's the TS040 HYBRID that will keep me up late into the night. Even better, with this announcementI'm now pretty certain we will get night simulation (can't really run realistic endurance races without it), and hopefully weather too.

    And just so you know, I'm so excited my eyes just popped out :eek::D

    Wow, finally an LMP1... the most exciting one (2014)!

    Kunos always knows how to make our day better! ;)

    Seeing as we have animated headlights, I'm fairly sure it's gonna be a Trueno.

    Please be a Trueno. Kunos, take advantage of this. We all want it. We won't reach the next gen until we have a high quality AE86 with animated pop up headlights. :D

    We have Nissan already so I'm fairly sure a BNR32 will appear some day, all we really need now is the Silvias, LanEvo's and RX7's.

    No car is better to kickstart the JDM scene than the AE86, though. It's basically a cultural icon at this point.

    Awesome news can't wait.

    Great job Kunos!

    So does this mean proper endurance simulation is coming?

    Hopefully these stay true to their country of origin and are right hand drive. There are plenty of left hand drive cars for people in the game already. Good announcement though!

    The more I think about the more bizarre the choise of celica is. Unless it is the gt-four or one of the other wrc competitors it just seems so odd to pick that car when there are the supergt cars, the imsa turbo monsters, various other rally beasts and touring cars. And even the gt-one and the 2000gt. It seems just odd. Even if ac wanted a low powered car then the toyota starlet would fit that bill much better. Being lighter, rwd and faster. It is a bit odd choise. Like if you had huyndai license and you picked the tiburon instead of the genesis coupe. Or you had ford and you picked the Ka instead of focus or the mustang.. Not complaining, just wondering :).

    Or better, do both. It's a little extra work, but I think they'd be appreciated. If you can only do one, do RHD.

    Of course, if you're doing a GT-S for example, make it LHD. If you're making a Subaru BRZ or an USDM GT86, make it LHD. But I know I'd prefer RHD. Especially the RHD AE86 gauges are nice, and the specs are better.

    Meh.. LHD ftw. Only few countries use RHD anyways.

    But dat Toyota LMP1 car... Wow so hyped!

  15. Great to see another manufacturer come on board!

    It is funny seeing here and on FB so many people think that suddenly Kunos is going to start completely over on the graphics engine so they can have night racing just because an endurance car is announced...pretty sure we have cars now that have pit stops in real life yet there are no pit stops in the sim and none are planned for quite some time...night racing in AC is at best years away and probably not happening at all judging from what Stefano has said.

    Few countries being the majority of the world which drives on the left and drives cars with shifters on the left?

    Please get educated.

    My post disappeared, but the matter is irrelevant anyway. Arguing RHD vs LHD purely for drive handedness is dumb. I want RHD mostly due to specs, and ease of use. The gauges are far better and in km/h, the engine is better, the brakes are better, it weighs less etc.

    Of course LHD AE86's exist, most if not all here in Finland are either EUDM or USDM.
