finally getting around to doing this and stop procrastinating. so…
The Golden Era of Japanese Sports Car
This is from the start of a time where the japanese automotive industry starts to take the worldwide automotive world by storm with their reputations built from the previous era. especially in both the economy car for being reliable, super economical, simple, and cheap. and their unique sports car approach that’s different from the rest of the world, and being competitive everywhere around the world. we all know the infamous Toyota Corolla AE86 first made famous by the Drift King, Keiichi Tsuchiya, then later by the Initial D series, the small and light, yet practical Mazda Miata, the quirky Mazda RX7 lineup, the absolute brute that is the Nissan R32 Skyline dubbed the ‘godzilla’, the Honda NSX with it’s new and ‘revolutionary’ VTEC at the time, and later the more attainable the Civic Type R. the iconic blue Subaru Impreza that was super competitive in the WRC, along with the
cheating 4WD Toyota Celica, and more. if the cars alone wasn’t impressive enough, or you couldn’t get any access to one, DON’T WORRY! Just play the Gran Turismo Series on the Sony Playstation! hundreds of amazing cars to play around with, just a hand grab away it was truly a great time for enthusiast cars from our beloved Japan.
but most those cars started their legend before the 1980s but only really come to light in the 1990s.
i’m shit at making these essay things
Now it’s time for you to try and make your version of these legends!
YEAH! 90s cheesy lines!
this is also a pilot challenge, a test platform for a bigger challenge idea i have, so this will be a 2 Round Challenge. but
in order to compete in the 2nd Round you have to use a car that competed in the 1st Round,
you are to build 2 generation of the same car. one in the 80s and another in the 90s. but i would not give the rules for the 2nd round, not even the year, only clues, hints and tips for the 2nd round. but be assured that i have tested this myself so it shouldn’t be something too outrageous, unless i missed something big
You have to use the same engine Family for both Rounds
i’m only asking for the engine to be carried forward. but i am not disallowing if you want to use the same body for the 2nd round
Round 1 (1985)
this is done on the UE4 engine. hopefully there won’t be too much problem
- Max Production Unit : 29
- Max Engineering Time 60
- 91 RON Fuel
- Catalytic Converter is mandatory
- Minimum 8km/l (I do not permit those "glitchy’ numbers where you suddenly got a lot more eco at specific gearings, except if you’re using a turbo)
- Minimum Safety 30
- Seat Counts : 2 minimum
- Max Production Unit : 86
- Max Engineering Time 55
- Max Price $16000@30%
Valued Statistics (applies for both Rounds)
- Choices that would make the car/body/platform “Futureproof”
- Comfort (up to a point, beyond it, it’s useless)
- Fuel economy
- Looks (also How the look would conform with age)
- other sensible choices
Tips and Clues for the 2nd Round
- if you don’t intend to turbo it on the 2nd stage, don’t max your engine variant size. the extra capacity could help
- try to find the best compromise for your build, what drags you down in the 1st round may help a lot in the 2nd round and vice versa
- the 2nd round is around what people would regard when this golden era comes to a close. so it’s less than 2 decades after the 1st round.
- you could try asking me for other hints about the 2nd round to help your own guesses.
Entry is now open.

also, if you want something to be specified on the review of your vehicle do say so through the PM
just adding some last words.
lore is encouraged though not a neccesity. make a backstory to your car.
