Just as i figured there aint a fiero in GT5. No surprise really but still a bit ridiculous i think considering they have many different years and kinds of MR2's. Just thought id vent a little..still a good game though

One has to consider this game is sold world wide and the MR2 was sold world wide. Many parts of the world would not even remember the Fiero today. Heck I even get that here with the people in their teens.

Also the guy who is behind it is from Japan so that is why there are so many cars from there in the game.

GT5 will have periodic patches that will be released for new cars. In the vehicle list for GT5, it has all years and trim levels of Fiero.

SITE: http://www.zerotohundred.co...te-list-of-cars.html

"Sony has announced the full GT 5's car list. It consists of 10000 cars. At launch it will only have 340 cars while the others will be developed in the future. Polyphony Digital will also develop cars for individual clients."

"That means in the future we could have any car put into the game for a special price. Of course the damage model will be not present in GT5. Below we are attaching the nearly official carlist of GT5."

Just one of many, many compromises during the GT5 development. The next instalment of Forza may just have Fieros... it'll be a waiting game.

Also the actual list of what was 1031 cars from what I read had a sad pontiac represental. They had the 04 gto...why not go with the 05 or 06 6.0? The solstice coupe concept...why not have the solstice gxp coupe instead? The vibe which in my opinion is a joke. A 64 tempest gto...ok that's fine but they changed none from the gt4 and I know its made and developed in japan and all but come on. I mean they have nascar in it which aside from toyota unfortunately is all american. Still great game though

if your capable in these matters you could probably edit the game on a pc and run the game there through emulation or perhaps on a ps3 if you can use burned discs, I haven't looked into modding that at all

Just find a Ferrari and prestend it is a Rebody. LOL!

This is just a frekin game and the cars are just fake. I could care less what it is as long as it gets me a good lap time. If they put a 85 GT in the game it would have too much understeer if they do it accuratly.

I would love to see a GTU Fiero racer or GTP light.

LOL, yeah.

Let's hope they put them in. I was really disappointed to see them excluded from GT4 after they showed up in a car list somewhere.

Petition, anyone? IIRC, someone did one for GT4.

I dont think this has anything to do with PolyPhony Digital. I think this has more to do with Pontiac/GM licensing. The Fiero was on the wish lists even back with RiceTurismo2. Considering that the Fiero was classed with the MR2s and RX7s of the time, it seemed odd to me not to include them, which is why I have come to the conclusion that it's the General's fault.

Not represented due to lack of numbers. They're not rare like some of the obscure crap that makes it into racing games, but they're not common enough to be represented like the terrible that makes it into racing games. There's equally no Fiat X1/9s in the games either, and at least with the example of the Forza franchise the only MR2s are the SW20s onward, not the earlier AW11... there's no love for the wedges.

"Not represented due to lack of numbers." Seriously? How many Lemans GT40s were made?
Who cares about how many cars were sold in the real world? It's a video game. I am disappointed that the Fiero is not in there. It would be one of the best cars to start with.
340 cars at launch at least 7 are GTRs? Must be the best selling car of all time.
I knew when I bought it that the car list was gonna piss me off but oh well

I was really really hoping to see Fiero in GT5. But I will keep hoping for one in a patch who knows.

Rarity. GT40s are rare. And in the US, GT-Rs are rare. And the Japanese gamers like having lots of Japanese cars.

This is why I'm not so much pissed off that GT5 has no Fieros, but that Forza has no Fieros. Forza is an american developed title with plenty of USDM vehicles... but most of them are old muscle or terrible stuff that has no place on the track. Seriously, why a Chevy Aveo but no Fiero? That really pisses me off.

I'd heard there was a Solstice and that a Fiero would be included later on, but I don't see either. How or where do you find these cars?

There is no Fiero. I don't know about the Solstice. I just went with a VX220, best of both worlds. Or you could go with a Skyline, there are 87 to choose from.

I doubt they will ever take the time to model 10000 cars seeing as it was released with 1000, I've seen that list before and I don't think it's from a reputible source for GT5 but I would love it if it were true. Of course people with Fiero's are going to want them in the game but I doubt many others could care less. Comparing the rarity doesn't mean much either, I'm sure if you asked the average car enthusiast which he would rather have in the game a Fiero or Lemans GT40? Hell even I might pick the GT40.
The other thing is the time they take to model cars and get the physics correct in a game like GT5, IMO that's why there are so many Skylines and other cars that were in previous versions, the leg work was done, so most likely they will only concentrate on the newer cars everyone likes and a few limited ones of which the Fiero is nothing special. I wish my Fiero was in the game too but after playing the first 4 games of GT I'll be happy enough with this one I'm sure.

Wasn't so much that the legwork was done, it's because they copy/pasted them from the previous games

I do believe there's a far better chance that the Fiero would make it as DLC for FM3 or maybe even come on FM4 however. Polyphony are renowned for only putting rubbish in their games.
