This is by far my fav torben tuesday pic, props @ torben (or whoever puts this together)!

I have no guesses though, just boxes of Pepe.

The Mercury Cougar Eliminator would be too easy.

Wikipedia of Cougar ... ford Cougar? ... mmmm OK
Supra - Nice ... been a lot of speculation on here regarding that

The engine pic ... not a Supra ...or a cougar

Where are the other trucks ... more teaser trucks supposed to be on the road?

We already have the advent calendar (on the left under the santa hat) with the daily free cars.

Love the "is this one of ours?!" comment

I was thinking the same, plus it’d be weird if they made those special livery trucks just to tease one car being added.

Anyone else notice those things that look like retail packages of FH4 Hotwheels cars? That a new thing?

- Whiteboard “Eliminator Truck” image: This is a photo posted on the forum and a thumbnail of Youtube. I have not verified all of them. Maybe a post about these eliminators included a guess that was close to the correct answer.

- Search results for "Cougar": This is definitely Mercury Cougar Eliminator. This car will be selected as a prize for the festival playlist related to “Eliminator” in Season 17.

- Supra picture: Needless to say. Already they have announced the addition of Supra on December 12.

- Cannon and Lego figures: A clue about the eliminator. Isn't the eliminator a new style race event like Hyperdrive? And this Lego guy or map image suggests that TV show-style sabotage will take place at this event. We will race while avoiding shelling and avoiding many objects such as heavy trucks and containers.

- A man's clothes in the foreground: A fire bird is depicted on the clothes. Perhaps in season 17 a new Firebird will be added as a season event prize.

-Hot Wheels: Adding new HW cars? Cars like HW Camaro and HW Beetle are not yet available on FH4. Or 2020 Jaguar F-Type. (They collaborated with HW to promote this car)

- “CAROL”: Carol is roughly divided into two. Mazda Carol and Carroll Shelby. (To be exact, the spelling is different)
Mazda Carol is an ordinary kei car. There is no possibility that this car will be added. Therefore, it is probably a Shelby car that is added. There are many Shelby cars available on the Xbox 360 era, such as the Shelby GT500, Shelby 1000, and Shelby Series 1.
Other speculation: Carol “Bunny” Burkett was a prominent female drag racer who drove Ford Pinto. Ford Pinto may be added.

Because the Supra was repeatedly announced as coming on Dec 12, and the update is a week earlier so the good folks at PG don't have to work too dangerously close to Christmas Week.

Could combine the Cougar and Carol for a '68 Mercury Shelby Cougar XR7-G?

We only know of the '98 Supra RZ so far. I would expect more though. The return of Toyota was a big and important issue for us and the team.
I don't think we'll see only one addition. A Celica, Corolla or MR2 should always find its way in ;}

The print-outs on the white board are mostly fan-generated images or videos, I think. But in the middle there's a pic of Jay from the street scene, saying "Who is this [?] What does he know?" And it looks like a kind of illuminati pyramid drawn in behind him. Maybe the Eliminator is related to street racing...

The hierarchy of street racers can be inferred from the pyramids and the street scene.
“Eliminator” may be a tournament-style event where multiple street races are performed, and the bottom racer leaves each time.
I don't know if this is a Horizon Story or a new game mode, but we will race for the top of the street scene.

Since they've been happy with SUVs as of late, maybe a Ford Puma,

Cougar Eliminator is prize for namesake game mode?

New Forza HW cars/conent?

Please no. Give us the 'real' Puma instead.

This Mercury Cougar Eliminator. IIRC was in FH3/F5??
https://www.hemmings.com...-ford-mustang-boss-302/
69 had Boss 302 available. Also up to a 7.0L SCJ if ordered.
Performante likely, as is 2020 Jag
Carol as in Christmas carol? Scrooge won't give us ANY new cars because people complain??
Or, new 700bhp Shelby GT500?

The Mercury Cougar Eliminator was in all FM games since 4.

If we are to take the Shelby thing seriously, the return of a Shelby Raptor comes to mind.

Less likely but much more exciting would be the Shelby Series 1

The location on the left monitor where the Supra is parked is the parking lot/rest area north of Bamburgh Castle. The viewing angle is a lot different. For one thing, the lighthouse looks a lot more distant, but matching up the contours of the hills in the distance, the shape of the fence and bushes nearby, I'm fairly certain that's the place.
Parking Lot

There's a fruit stand in the area:
Castle

Facing the same way the Supra is parked, the wind farm is directly ahead.

Tracking down the exact location in the wind farm is another story. For one thing, the wind turbines in the center monitor image look nothing like in-game. Each one is much thicker at the base, inset from the road, and have a large parking/service area around them. And they all have a pair of utility boxes, and sometimes some pallets nearby. These look more like low res placeholders in a dev tool, rather than something directly from the game, or any direct environment editor.

There is a rest area near the wind farm that also has a fruit stand, if that means anything.

The Hot Wheels in the background are from the 2019 Hot Wheels Forza Horizon 4 set, and all of them, save the 180SX are already in the game.

The engine on the wall has been there every TorbenTuesday.

The Eliminator could be a new event with the Cougar Eliminator as a prize maybe?
