Page Explosion

This list has been exploded from the original, heavily hotlinked page to a simpler list, linked to individual car pages for every car in the list. Links to images, Wikipedia and RSportCars references have been moved off the main list to the respective car pages.

This provides a simpler car list, easier for users to edit, and also gives us much more scope for adding individual car information as it comes to hand. I would suggest that the Car List page can be expanded to include information that covers all cars, a performance comparison table, for example. Any information specific to a single car should be added to that car's page.

As far as individual car pages go, I would still suggest a uniform layour and content, in order to provide a uniform look-and-feel. This means that any updates should be performed in a batch fashion - for example, when adding a 'Manufacturer:' data field to a car page, go through and make the same change to every car page, using the Car List as a jumpoff point. Firefox's middle-click option is a lifesaver here. GT3x24x7 11:26, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

1971 Dodge Challenger and 2006 Pagani Zonda moved to confirmed list

Car List update (Oct 17)

I've moved any car seen in screenshots into the confirmed section. My logic here is that if EA released the screenshots, or if they were seen in official gaming events (Porsche GT3, Plymouth Roadrunner, Lexus IS300), then these cars are finished enough and licensing is done enough that the cars can be released to the community. If anyone feels any different, please justify your logic, and then edit the car list and the corresponding car pages.

Editing Individual Car Pages

Please keep in mind that GT and Bojan want the wiki to be as uniform as possible. So if you add some information to one car page, make sure to add similar information to the other car pages. If the information is not available, just leave it blank or type in N/A. Then leave a note enclosed in <small> and </small> tags requesting that someone add the missing information.

Let's look at an example of what I'm talking about: You've added engine specs to the Chevrolet Camaro page, but you know nothing about the engine specs of the other cars. So go to the other car pages (yes all of them!) and type in Engine: and leave it blank. Then leave a note requesting that someone fill out the missing info.

Yes, it does seem like a lengthy process to edit every single car page, but if you think about it, all you need to do is edit one. Then just copy paste and click.

BMW and Ford GT

So on my game it lists the BMW as a tier 3 tuner and the Ford GT as a tier 3 muscle, not as exotics. I dunno what's up with that.
