It is that lovely time of the month where the DLC Clue thread comes into play. A time where I post some utterly vague clues about the cars of the upcoming December pack and you make your best guess. The December car pack will be released on Tuesday December 6 around 10 a.m. Pacific. Be sure to come watch me show off the cars of the pack in the Beam and Twitch streams that will start as soon as the pack is released.

https://www.twitch.tv/forzamotorsport

https://beam.pro/forzamotorsport

So the rules here are simple. Only post your guesses. Keep banter to a minimum. One guess per person, but you can change your guess if a lightbulb comes on in your head. I may gift credits to correct guesses, I may not. I may like posts with correct guesses, I may not.

Most of all have fun, after all that is the primary purpose of the DLC Clue Thread.


Clue 1 Car 1

It is of the past, does not exist in the present and speaks to the future

Clue 1 Car 2

The Tifosi thought it was a ripoff.

Clue 1 Car 3

Being trendy can also be exciting.

Clue 1 Car 4

If it looks like a race car and drives like a race car but, does that make it a race car?

Clue 1 Car 5

Something is missing.

Clue 1 Car 6

Representing a period of absolute dominance.

Clue 1 Car 7

It was both the beginning and the end for this model.


Thanks for playing,

I'm just hoping car 2 is the MR2. The Tifosi referring to ferrari fans and the mr2 was dubbed "the poor man's ferrari".

That's the only guess I've got right now, and it's probably more just wishful thinking than anything else.

1. Delorean DMC.

Back to the future.

2. The only other car I can think of that got the label of "poor man's ferrari" was the Pontiac Fierro. I mean... it's worth a shot? Please be the Fierro.

3. Nissan Stagea...?

4. Panoz Esperante GTLM. Probably not it, but worth a shot. I'm thinking outside of the box (trying to get into the staff's box)

5. 1967 Cadillac Eldorado. Really reaching here. Missing RWD.

6. Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible

7. Pontiac Aztec

It exists in the present though. There's a small company out there Manufacturing Deloreans. There's a guy that brings his NEW Delorean to the Cars and Coffee event every month. I have some photos of it on my Onedrive account. http://www.newdelorean.com/

And let me tell you, That car is a dog Stock, even the old ones were dogs for their day.

So I'll Guess: Ferrari 512S Modulo for clue 1

Clue 1 Car 1

Is this...Could this possibly be a DeLorean???

Clue 1 Car 2

Pontiac Fiero GT? I know quite a few people that have mistaken them for Ferrari's, thus the Tifosi Ripoff comment.

Clue 1 Car 3

Maybe the newly restyled Tesla Model S or the Model X

Clue 1 Car 4

The extra "but" in there has got to have something to do with it. I'm still thinking on this one. Possibly the Radical RXC coupe

Clue 1 Car 5

Something is missing. What car is missing something obvious? Maybe it's an all electric vehicle? Possibly the Google Driverless car, LOL.

Clue 1 Car 6

Are there any heavily dominant Aussie Touring cars that we haven't got yet?

Clue 1 Car 7

Beginning and End... Alpha and Omega...Are we getting one of the AMS modified GTR's? If I'm taking that too literally, maybe it's a Cadillac XLR-V.

I've never understood the desire for it in racing games. It's not a good car. Having said that, if almost be happy to get it so people would stop asking for it. I think the clue is obviously trying to get people to think that's the car, hopefully to pull the rug out from under them

And I've also heard the Fiero called the poor man's ferrari, but I would hope we would get the mr2 instead. It's common in the mr2 community to hear it called that.

*insert meme of Clarkson telling Will.i.am the Fiero was the poor man's mr2.

Clue 1 Car 1 - It is of the past, does not exist in the present and speaks to the future.
You could buy it in the past (1981-1982), you can't buy it now (only used, or this one electric prototype) and you will be able to buy a new Delorean in the future.
But these clue threads are tricky, the first thought isn't always right.
A Delorean would be a great christmas present from T10 though.

Somebody said that you could actually buy the "new" Delorean right now, but technically you can't have one before 2017. At this point you can only send a Pre-Order Interest Application, not a real order.

The car is clearly an icon and we had several cars in the last Forza games who made no sense on a racetrack whatsoever.
For example I don't know why we need so many Nissan Silvia's in the game, but still a lot of people love them.
Also a Delorean makes much more sense in a Horzion game than in a Forza Motorsport game.

Clue 1 Car 2 - The Tifosi thought it was a ripoff.
Should be some kind of racecar which beat a Ferrari on the Track.

I read about Pontica Fiero, but I doubt that this car got a lot of attention from the Tifosi only because some called it "poor guys Ferrari".
Also I cant see the resemblance.

Clue 1 Car 5 - Something is missing.
Morgan 3-wheeler. Compared to other cars it's clearly missing a 4th tire.

Because it's an iconic car, and people like it. Could easily be made into a competitive car with Forza's upgrades.

I'm thinking #1 may be the Chevrolet EV-1.

It was made in the late 90's so it's of the past.

Only a couple survived the purge so it doesn't really exist in the present.

It uses a technology that spoke to the future.
