I can't find any comment including or excluding AWD with a rear mounted engine, a la 911.
Rear-engined 4WD isn't included in the game because it isn't considered significant enough to make it in the game.
even though i think it is, but the devs said no so sorry
Well, I hope they stick it in a DLC... if they ever make DLC.
If they add it it's probably not going to be DLC.
They already have most of the assets needed to make it AFAIK, since they can take a lot of bits from mid-engined AWD.
Exactly, just pretty much re-use the existing assets from the AWD for the 4X4, from there it's just a change of calculations, and if I remember right, the 4X4 just gave a boost to off road
